Nikhil Siddharth’s Karthikeya 2 emerged as Triple Blockbuster at the box office. Even after completing two weeks and despite the release of Vijay Devarakonda’s Liger, Karthikeya 2 is running strong in all territories. This is the biggest hit in Nikhil’s career by a long chalk.
By the end of the third Saturday, Karthikeya 2 grossed over 90 Crores with a share of 45 Crores. The film was sold for 14 Crores and trade analysts have declared it a triple blockbuster based on its return on investment. A major chunk of its share accumulated from the Telugu States which accounted for 27 Crores. In Nizam alone, the film collected 10.5 Crores.
Karthikeya 2 turned out to be a sleeper hit in Hindi belts with 20 Crores net and 10 Crores share. In overseas, the film is heading towards one of the biggest hits of all time. It collected $ 1.3 Million in the USA.
Despite heavy competition from other Telugu films and Bollywood biggies, Karthikeya 2 emerged as a huge money spinner at the box office due to its strong content and terrific performances. Directed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film has Anupama Parameshwaran and Anupam Kher in significant roles.
