The box office performance of the latest Bollywood blockbuster The Kashmir Files has surprised many, and in a big way! The movie’s commerce is increasing even on weekdays, thanks to an increase in the number of screens.
The Kashmir Files, the most recent Bollywood release, has exploded at the box office. Unlike most films, which suffer a decline in box office after the first weekend, the Vivek Agnihotri-directed film is doing the opposite. The exceptional rise in interest surrounding the film led to the doubling of screens and shows after it premiered on Friday on a limited number of screens (about 700 in India). It has also been deemed tax-free in various states. This is adding to the craze, and fans are lining up outside the theatres in enormous numbers.
According to trade expert Taran Aradsh, The Kashmir Files generated Rs 18 crore in business on Tuesday, up to Rs 3 crore from Monday. When compared to Sunday profits, Monday collections increased by a few lakhs, but Tuesday collections increased by many crores.

This, in and of itself, demonstrates the high level of interest in this publication among the general public. This is the largest weekday collection for any film in India during the COVID era, and significantly better by any measure for any film before COVID. Based on the current box office estimates, the film is expected to gross Rs 90-100 crore by the end of the first week, with higher second-weekend performance.
According to the BOI assessment, The Kashmir Files will soon be conducting business worth Rs 20 crore every day. It remains to be seen if this occurs within the first week or after Friday. Taran Adarsh, a trade analyst, compared the box office performance of recent films to The Kashmir Files, and none of them can match the latter’s numbers. Akshay Kumar’s Soooryavanshi, Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, and Ranveer Singh’s 83 were all defeated by The Kashmir Files.
Pre-Covid blockbusters like Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Uri: The Surgical Strike are doing better than The Kashmir Files. It’s difficult to say where the box office tsunami produced by The Kashmir Files will finish at this time.
According to Box Office India, the momentum for The Kashmir Files will pick up, especially in the second weekend, as mass booking of shows has already begun, and this is not restricted to major multiplex chains, but also includes numerous independent multiplexes.
