The Kashmir Files makes box office history, with day 8 collections on par with ‘Baahubali 2’.
The Kashmir Files has become one of the most widely discussed documentaries in recent years. Not only that, but the film is also one of the most successful post-pandemic films in terms of box office receipts.
‘The Kashmir Files,’ directed by Vivek Agnihotri and based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Jammu and Kashmir with the advent of terrorism in the valley, has been a box office success, with the cash registers ringing.
The film just made box office history with a day 8 total of 19.15 crores, which, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, is on par with Baahubali 2’s day 8 total of 19.75 crores. He also stated that The Kashmir Files had a bigger day 8 box office collection than Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’ (18.59 crore).
Taran Adarsh’s tweet also revealed the total box office receipts of ‘The Kashmir Files’ in India since its March 11 release, which stands at a staggering 116.45 crore.
Taran Adarsh revealed in the following tweet that ‘The Kashmir Files’ had the greatest single-day gross on Friday (March 18) and that the film is being dubbed in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
Meanwhile, according to IANS, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) decided on Friday to provide ‘The Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnihotri with ‘Y’ category CRPF security cover throughout the country.
According to reports, the MHA made its decision after Intelligence and other security agencies assessed Agnihotri’s security danger.
Agnihotri will receive eight CRPF soldiers, including one or two commandos, as well as police personnel, under the ‘Y’ category.
