kannada movie KGF: Chapter 2 more than deserved 1200 crore at the worldwide box office. It’s deserved the Hindi version alone 400 crore, more than any Bollywood movie ever. Telugu film Pushpa The Rise, which was released last year, also did good business in the Hindi-speaking belt with its dubbed version, which is more than 100 crores.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun talked about how movies like: pushpa and KGF are doing well at the box office. He said: “I think a lot of people need to understand what mainstream is. I don’t know how many people remember movies like Trishul and Deewar, the movies with stories and Pushpa works for that reason and KGF works for that reason. There’s a certain attitude which is “desi.” That’s a multiplex audience dynamic, but when you see Gangubhai Kathiawadi has earned more? 200 crore in terms of Hindi viewer ticket sales for movies like KGF, Pushpa, Gangubai, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and even all Hollywood movies. Mainstream will always be a little bit more important.”
Arjun will next be seen in Ek Villain Returns. The film also stars John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria. It comes out on July 29, 2022. The actor also has Kuttey and The Ladykiller in the pipeline. Kuttey stars Konkona Sensharma, Radhika Madaan, Naseeruddin Shah and Tabu. The Ladykiller Features Bhumi Pednekar next to Arjun.
