The Hindi adaptation of the Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2 alone brought in over 400 crore. In a recent interview, actor Arjun Kapoor discussed how Indian viewers adore “desi” films and long to watch them in theatres. The actor stated that prominent Hindi films like KGF 2, Pushpa, Gangubai Kathiawadi, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 succeed due of people’s “desi” mentality.

The Hindi-dubbed versions of KGF and Puhspa, however, outperformed the majority of recent mainstream Hindi movies in terms of box office revenue and broke records.

Hindi-language sales for the Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2 exceeded 400 crore, a record for any Bollywood production. At the international box office, it brought in well than Rs. 1200 crore. Pushpa the Rise, a Telugu movie that came out a year ago, did well in the Hindi-speaking region thanks to its dubbed version, earning over 100 crore. Sanjay Dutt plays the antagonist in KGF: Chapter 2, the follow-up to KGF: Chapter 1. Yash plays the lead.

Vijay Kiragandur under the name Hombale Films produced the movie. Ravi Basrur is the composer of the movie’s score. However, Sukumar’s film “Pushpa: The Rise,” starring Allu Arjun, did well and ended up grossing $300 million globally.

Arjun recently discussed the success of films like Pushpa and KGF in an interview with Bollywood Hungama. He stated: “I think a lot of people need to understand what mainstream is. I don’t know how many people remember films like Trishul and Deewar, the films that have stories and Pushpa works for that reason and KGF works for that reason. There is a certain amount of attitude that is ‘desi’. That is a multiplex audience dynamic but if you will see Gangubhai Kathiawadi has earned over ₹200 crore in terms of ticket sales of Hindi viewing audience for films such as KGF, Pushpa, Gangubai, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and all even the Hollywood films. Mainstream is always gonna be a little more important.”

Arjun Kapoor was last observed at work, which was Bhoot Police. He will next be seen in Mohit Suri’s “Ek Villain Returns,” which will be released on July 8 and also has John Abraham, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles. In addition to this, the actor also keeps “Kuttey” and “Lady Killer” in his cat. Konkona Sensharma, Radhika Madaan, Naseeruddin Shah, and Tabu are the stars of Kuttey. Alongside Arjun, Bhumi Pednekar appears in The Ladykiller.
