According to the BOI report, “The film is being driven by North India and Gujarat / Saurashtra which are the leading contributors and both multiplexes and single screens are working fantastically well in both these areas. Delhi/UP and East Punjab as well as some other circuits are sure to see post-pandemic records but Delhi/UP and East Punjab will be about where they fall in the all-time list.”
Interestingly, The Kashmir Files has emerged as the first choice of moviegoers despite big-budget films including Radhe Shyam, Batman, and Gangubai Kathiawadi running in cinemas. Unlike these films, The Kashmir Files also doesn’t boast of any big mainstream commercial star. While Radhe Shyam is headlined by South superstar Prabhas, Batman has Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson.
