As per the reports, both The Kerala Story and Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 are going neck-to-neck in terms of their collection on day 1. Both are heading towards Rs 7 crore mark. But The Kerala Story will have an upper hand as the film has done better collections across mass circuits. The movie’s collection may even go up to Rs 7.5 crore nett on its opening day.
The film’s collections are huge as compared to recently released mainstream films like Bhediya, Cirkus and Shehzada which failed to make a mark despite face value. While the film is controversial in nature and shows negativity towards a certain community, it has somehow become the selling point of the film.
On the other hand, Guardians Of the Galaxy 3 has managed to rake in around Rs 7 crore nett on its opening day. Though the film’s collection are driven by advance booking and despite similar collections, The Kerala Story is expected to witness about 60-70 per cent increase in footfalls in the days to come.
