Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes registered the second biggest Hollywood opening in India, trailing behind Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire. With its strong grip in the South market, the third film in the popular Apes franchise has collected ₹22.65 crore gross in 7 days, according to Sacnilk. It has benefitted from the lack of new releases in India due to the ongoing elections and IPL.
