The film that really took everyone by surprise in the last month of 2018 was the Yash starrer 'KGF'. Released in over five languages all across the globe, the film's success has paved a new way for Kannada cinema. The film's box office collections are already super impressive and it has the honour of becoming the highest grossing Kannada film. Now, the Prashant Neel directorial has added another feather in its cap.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to reveal that 'KGF' will now release in Singapore as well. One of the most leading cinema chains in the country, Golden Village, will be screening the action flick there. It is being distributed in Singapore by Darpan Global and with this achievement, 'KGF' has added another country and possibly improved collections in its roster. It will release on January 3rd and if it does well, there is a new market in store for Sandalwood films. There is a high probability that it will happen since its great reception in theatres overseas is proof.
Not only that, but the film also found a release in Australia and such is the popularity of the Yash starrer that it held unauthorized screenings which led to some confusion. Coming to the collection at the ticket window so far, the movie has jumped from strength to strength at it amassed Rs 154 crore in terms of worldwide collections. Now, with the added market of Singapore, the dream of crossing Rs 200 crore mark looks easy.
'KGF' stands for 'Kolar Gold Fields' and the film is the first film in the two-part franchise. It shows the bloody history of one of the largest gold mines that India possessed in the 1980s, as it follows a gangster's rise to the top. Mounted on a massive budget of Rs 80 crore, the film took everyone by surprise after it beat Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero' at the box office.
