Mumbai, August 14 - Director Chandoo Mondeti's supernatural thriller film Karthikeya 2
has become a rage despite getting a limited release across Telugu states. The movie is also making its presence felt in the dubbed Hindi version.
The movie starring Nikhil Siddharth, Anupama Parameswaran, and Anupam Kher has had just 54 shows on the first day in Hindi but most of them got filled after the super positive word of mouth. Because of the huge demand, more shows and screens got added for the second day. The movie has more than 180 shows in Hindi on Sunday (2nd day).
"Karthikeya 2" is getting the same response as Allu Arjun's "Pushpa - The Rise" in the Hindi version as far as shows allotment is concerned. "Pushpa" too started on a slow note but after getting positive WOM, more shows were added to the movie which helped it to get excellent results at the box office.
For "Karthikeya 2", there are already 600+ shows for tomorrow (August 15), and more and more shows are being added with each passing hour. There is a possibility that shows for tomorrow may increase to 1000 shows as the momentum has really shifted towards the film.
The box office collection of the movie in Hindi was 9 lakh gross on the first day, which is a low number by the look but high considering the release size. Today, the movie is expected to gross 40+ lakh and from tomorrow, we can expect 1 crore gross.
