Advance booking of only 8.65 crores from Hindi version

Apart from Prabhas, 'Kalki 2898 A.D.' also stars Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, Disha Patani and Kamal Haasan. But despite the three Bollywood actors and Prabhas' fan following among Bollywood audiences, the film has lagged behind the Hindi version in terms of advance booking. The Hindi version has earned only Rs 8.65 crore from advance booking. This is much less than Yash's KGF 2 and Prabhas' 'Baahubali 2'. However, 'Kalki 2898 A.D.' is performing better in Hindi than Prabhas' previous release 'Salaar'.

'Kalki 2898' budget is Rs 600 crore

Directed by Nag Ashwin and produced under the banner of Vaijayanti Films, 'Kalki 2898 AD' has a budget of Rs 600 crore. The audience who came out after watching the morning show on Thursday are calling it a good visual experience. However, most of the audience say that the pace of the story in the film is a bit slow and it seems more like preparing the ground for its part-2.

'Kalki 2898 A.D.' will lag behind in Hindi version on the first day

Kalki 2898 AD will have to work hard to earn in the Hindi version. The advance booking of the film in Hindi is Rs 8.65 crore.

The thing to understand here is that the Hindi version had the biggest hand in the historical earnings of films like 'Bahubali 2', KGF 2 and RRR. In such a situation, if Kalki 2898 AD has to make record-breaking earnings in the future, then it will have to attract Hindi audiences.

120 crore gross collection on first day in the country

This film has been released at a time when Bollywood to South Cinema have proved to be a big flop in 2024. But the tremendous advance booking of Rs 55.11 crore shows that Kalki 2898 AD has come to settle everyone's accounts. However, looking at the advance booking figures, the crowd of audience in theaters since morning and the trend of on-spot booking, it is estimated that this film will take a gross opening of Rs 120-125 crore in the country on the first day including all languages.

Opening over 200 crores worldwide

Prabhas has a strong fan following outside the country as well. The advance booking of the film has been good in foreign countries as well. In such a situation, it is estimated that this film will earn around Rs 80 crore on the first day in foreign countries as well. If this happens, then 'Kalki 2898 AD' can earn Rs 200 crore worldwide including India and abroad on the opening day.
