Yash's KGF Enters Rs 200 Crore Club, First Kannada Film to Do So
It is really a happy birthday for Kannada actor Yash as his latest release KGF has become the first Kannada film to cross the Rs 200 crore mark.
In its Hindi version, KGF aka Kolar Gold Fields is all set to go past the Rs 40 crore mark, despite facing competition from two big Hindi films - Zero and Simmba. The movie has put up a strong fight at the box office despite limited screens.
KGF is making good money in its Tamil and Telugu versions as well. Its Telugu version has earned over Rs 20 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed that the film's Hindi version has managed to earn Rs 37.20 crore and is expected to make Rs 40 crore in a couple of days.
