New Delhi: 

Since the pandemic began, the three most successful Indian films in terms of box office revenue have all come from the South.

Allu Arjun-starrer Pushpa earned ₹367 crores globally with the Hindi version alone collecting ₹107 crores. KGF 2 has been even more phenomenal, earning ₹300 crores in just two days, with its Hindi-dubbed version also breaching ₹100 crores.

‘KGF: Chapter 2’ raked in Rs. 42.50 cr at the box office on its first Saturday, which is a drop of less than 10 percent from the first Friday numbers.
