KVV Break Even Target
The worldwide theatrical rights of the flick are sold at Rs 5.88 crores, hence it needs to recover around 6 crores shares to emerge as a successful flick at the box office. Whereas Telugu-speaking state’s rights are sold at Rs 5.63 crores.
Box Office Collections Day 1
Krishna Vrinda Vihari has failed to create a buzz surrounding it and the mixed response from the critics will translate into low opening figures at the box office. Though, it did witness excellent occupancy on the first day owing to national cinema day.
The day 1 domestic figure are yet to come, the film has grossed more than its previews on Day 1 at the US box office. Naga’s film collected $31,284 on Day 1 and it had raked in $16,144 from its premieres.
