The first blockbuster of 2017 - Kirik Party, which created records in domestic box-office is repeating the feat at USA Box-Office. The film released big in over 70 screens last Friday throughout USA.
The film had terrific openings and has managed to collect USD 260,000 (Rs.1.77 Crore) on its opening weekend. Distributors are hoping the film collects close to half a million(USD) in the full run.
The film has been released in number of major centers overseas and makers are in the process of releasing the film in remaining centers as well, with the help of local distributors.
The team of Kirik Party managed to release the film in Israel. This is the first screening for the Kannada film in the country. Rakshit Shetty confirmed the screening - "First Kannada movie to get a show in Israel. #KirikParty will be premiered today in Israel".
While speaking to a publication, distributor Jayanna, who released the film in Karnataka, stated that film has grossed over 30 Crores till date in Karnataka and he expects the film to gross around 50 Crores worldwide in full run.
He also revealed that even though the film has grossed over 30 Crores, producers share will be around 15 Crores as the majority collections are from multiplexes, where he says sharing pattern is skewed.
Another good news for the team is by last weekend, 'Belageddu' video song from the movie had reached 10 Million views on YouTube which is a first for a Kannada film in the recent years. This is just an example of the reach of Kirik Party and its songs.
