Since the Yash starrer is getting love from across the country as far as the advance sales are concerned, the makers of Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey pushed back the release date to a week. According to many trade analysts, it is of fear of the K.G.F 2 monster advance sales.
And also we have recently seen how the RRR mania put a stop to John starrer box office collections, the big-ticket film only managed to collect over Rs 11 Cr on its opening weekend.
So, it is safe to say that the Jersey makers opt for the right decision, as the clash would be halting the films business since K.G.F 2 buzz is high in the country.
Prashant Neel’s directorial has churned out the business of Rs 345 Cr worldwide, let you know the recent blockbuster RRR has done the pre-release business of Rs 451 Cr. K.G.F 2 earned most from Karnatka and Hindi versions followed by Telugu.

‘KGF 2 will fail immensely as there is an inherent problem? Movie is not a TV serial. People want new (a fresh story) not a continuation.’ If a movie is to be long, it has to made as one piece (it will be like Lava Kusa, Dhana Veera Sura Karna). The thinking to divide a movie into two and pocket money that strategy wont work always?
