The Kerala Story box office collection Day 28: Sudipto Sen’s The Kerala Story, which he also directed, became the second-highest-grossing Hindi movie of 2023. The movie centres on three ladies and explores the serious issue of religious conversions and ISIS. The fifth weekend is almost here. TKS started off as a big success at the box office, but lately its earnings have decreased. Additionally, it looks challenging for the movie to pass the Rs 250 crore threshold.
Box office collection
Early trade estimates indicate that on Day 28, June 1, the movie brought in Rs 1.25 crore at the box office. As a result, The Kerala Story has earned a total of Rs 231.66 crore. On June 1, it was occupied 10.67% of the time in Hindi overall.
About the film
According to reports, the central character of The Kerala Story is an innocent Hindu woman from Kerala who is misled and converted by Islamic companions. Later, she gets transferred to the ISIS terrorist group. Everyone was surprised, though, to learn that the movie is based on actual events in which some 32,000 Keralan women fell victim to this risky ruse.
Even when the trailer debuted, the movie was being scanned. Following this, there have been an increase in resentment and demonstrations calling for the film’s ban. The trailer for the movie, however, now refers to the current stories of three women rather than the “story of 32,000 women.” That spurred additional discussion.
