Rocking Star Yash taps the national chord with 'K.G.F: Chapter 2'

While addressing a question on the pan-India acceptance of films, Yash said that North, East, South, West were mere directions. 

In his recent media interaction during the promotion of his film 'K.G.F: Chapter 2', Rocking Star Yash had stressed on dissolving barriers which separates the regional film industry. While addressing a question on the pan-India acceptance of films, the actor had said that North, East, South, West were mere directions. He stressed on how, as Indians and as one industry, we should collectively believe in Indian cinema and come together to celebrate it. He insisted that rather than creating Bollywood, Tollywood, Sandalwood etc, the right approach is to have a holistic perspective.

With unmatched love from all parts of the country, audience from across the country are celebrating the 'KGF: Chapter 2'. Right from its trailer to advance booking and opening day records, the film has been setting new benchmarks in Indian cinema.

From housefull boards hung outside single screens and multiplexes to Instagram reels using Yash’s one-liners, there is a huge interest among audience. Interestingly, his fan following in not just among the male audience, his female fan following has grown immensely in the recent few years – which has been a phenomenon largely enjoyed by cricketers in the country. On the day of release, the makers even organised special fan shows exclusively for his female fans.

And the cheer is not just limited to social platforms, it is also delivering on the cash registers for the makers. Trade figures released by the analysts and team reveal that 'K.G.F: Chapter 2' has become one of the highest-ever grossing film in its first two days across Indian screen, closing a business of ₹240 Cr. A geographical scrutiny of the film’s performance shows that in Hindi alone it has grossed ₹55.21 Cr and become one of the fastest to reach the ₹100 Cr club milestone. Similar results are in Kerala and its native region Karnataka. In both the states, it has become the film to have the highest ever Day 2.

Speaking on the increasing reach of Yash’s presence across the country, Rohit Jaiswal, a renowned trade analyst said, “In the Bengal belt, both single screen and multiplexes are running to packed houses, even for early morning and late-night shows. And not just in cinemas, the Rocky Bhai look has become a rage and everyone wants to get. Not just the physical appearance, but even his swag. The love for Yash is similar to what Bengal has for Prosenjit, and his female fan following here is massive as well.”

Similar scenes were witnessed from Gaiety Galaxy in Mumbai, which is known to be one of landmark single screens of the area. Videos of audience cheering for Rocky Bhai unanimously in Mumbai, to visuals of families flocking theatres in Tamil Nadu at 3 AM even on the 3rd day, is also a first for Tamil Nadu belt.

With such numbers while the markets would be going home with a width-wide smiles on their faces, Yash’s suggestion to look at the Indian audience sans any regional prisms seems to be coming true. Will the film retain the buoyant run? Only time will tell.
