After getting postponed many times due to the pandemic, the much-awaited film was finally released yesterday (April 14). Reports suggest that it has become the biggest box-office opener of all times.
As of now, ‘Baahubali 2’ and ‘RRR’ are the top openers with a difference of less than a crore in their collections and now ‘KGF 2’ is getting added to the competition.
