King of Kotha Box Office Day 1: Dulquer Salmaan’s Gangster Drama Stars Slow, Earns Rs 7.05 Crore

Directed by Abhilash Joshiy, King Of Kotha stars Dulquer Salmaan, Prasanna, Shabeer Kallarakkal, Gokul Suresh, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Nyla Usha and others.

Dulquer Salmaan starrer King of Kotha is now in theatres and is getting mixed reviews from the audience.

Dulquer Salmaan’s gangster-drama King of Kotha was released across multiple languages amid much anticipation on Thursday, August 24. The film is receiving mixed reviews and according and industry tracker Sacnilk, it witnessed a slow start at the box office on its opening day. Reportedly, the film earned Rs 7.05 crore net at the domestic box office on day one. The global earnings amounted to Rs 16.80 crore.

The film witnessed the highest occupancy in Kerala at nearly 53.65% on Thursday. Kozhikode led the table with an overall occupancy of 86.50%, followed by Kochi at 67% and Thrissur at 63.50%. As such, the film seems to have a stronghold in Kerala.

The film’s trailer was attached to Sunny Deol’s superhit film Gadar 2 which crossed the Rs 400 crore mark in only 12 days since its release. Dulquer had told ANI, “We can’t have a bigger marketing than that because people might have seen our trailer even now. So we hope that we can also ride the wave of right and time.”

“In India, we all have a belief that if the time is good, everything will work, maybe their time is very good, so we can also benefit from it,” he added. The film is said to have been made with a budget of Rs 50-60 crore. It was also dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.

Talking about the film’s budget, Dulquer recently told PTI, “In the current climate, people want theatrical experience. In Malayalam, we do so much of smaller, intimate realistic storytelling… I was like, ‘You need to draw people to theatres. They should come and celebrate’. It should be visually spectacular and technically sound. The massive tentpole films that we all celebrate are not made easily. There’s a lot of effort, time, and money that go into it.”

King of Kotha features Dulquer as a footballer who follows in his father’s footsteps and ventures into the underworld. The film also stars Aishwarya Lekshmi, Shabeer Kallarakkal, Prasanna and Gokul Suresh in key roles. The film is directed by Abhilash Joshiy and produced by Dulquer.
