Kabzaa led by Kannada star Upendra is finally out in theatres all across the globe. So far, the film is receiving highly negative reviews unanimously. As a result of which, the box office opening is disappointing, and the magnum opus is on its way to becoming one of the biggest flops in the Kannada film industry. Let’s take a look at its budget!
After the historic success of KGF Chapter 2 and Kantara, Upendra’s latest release was considered to be the next big thing on a pan-India level with it releasing in five Indian languages- Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam. It has been shot on a huge scale and pre-release talks have been suggested huge buzz.
Budget of Kabzaa
Just like every other magnum opus, the audience is eager to know about the cost of this latest Sandalwood release. As per the insider from the trade circle, Kabzaa carries a budget of 110 crores including production, publicity and advertising costs. This huge cost makes it the most expensive Kannada film in history.
Beats KGF Chapter 2 & Vikrant Rona in budget
Kabzaa beats the likes of the biggest Sandalwood films ever. For the unversed, Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 had a budget of 100 crores and Kichcha Sudeep’s Vikrant Rona was made at 95 crores. The Upendra starter beats both these biggies with its exorbitant cost.
When Kabzaa will emerge as a box office success?
To at least get a semi-hit verdict, Kabzaa will need to earn 137.50 crores nett at the Indian box office. For a hit verdict, it will need to make at least 165 crores nett. Yesterday, the film opened with just 10.50 crores nett on board from all across the country and looking at the negative reviews, the box office journey seems to be very difficult. Emerging as a clean success is clearly out of sight now!
