Box Office Collection Day 1
However, the advance bookings of Kantara are not that appealing due to no wide promotions, makers have only released the trailer as they did with the original version. It is a pure word-of-mouth film and will witness growth in the coming days due to audience genuine WOM. As per the early estimations, it will draw in around 2 crores on its first day and will grow after WOM comes into play.
2022 has been the year of a content-driven film, we have seen biggies failing at the box office while small films like The Kashmir Files, Karthikeya 2, 777-Charlie, Rocketry, and now Kantara saw their business booming due to word of mouth.
