December 21 was a big day for cinema lovers as two big films released on the same day. Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero' and Yash's 'KGF' clashed at the box office. While the Aanand L Rai had a massive release across the world, 'KGF' too had a formidable screen count as it released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Now the first day collections of the action flick are out and it looks super promising.
According to reports, the film has earned Rs 18.1 crore including all versions of the film. The Hindi version also minted Rs 2.1 crore which is quite impressive for a regional dubbed film with a star who doesn't have a pan India presence yet. The film has also done well from a critical point of you with good word of mouth and decent ratings from the critics. Thanks to incredible cinematography, good action sequences and masala content, the film has managed to attract audiences. With a weekend to look forward to, the figures are only expected to improve.
What's even more amazing is how well the film is doing in front of a juggernaut like 'Zero'. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer, which received mixed reviews on its opening day managed to mint Rs 20.14 crore, which considering the movie's budget is not a great start. The weekend will be really crucial for the Aanand L Rai directorial as well and it remains to be seen if the Yash starrer can actually best the SRK film or not.
