Rajinikanth & Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 wasn’t only one of the most immensely successful films of 2018 but also one of the most anticipated ones. And not only did the film set the cash registers ringing, it also created an unbeatable record last year that shall be very difficult for any film to equal, let alone overpower. Do you know it actually sold over 16 tickets per second all across the country? Released in as many as three languages, it shattered all films’ ticket sales in India.
Ticket sales of regional films in North India fantastically improved. The recent example being Yash’s KGF, which ended up making more money than Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero in the second and third week. Talking about the same, Ashish Hemrajani, CEO and Founder, BookMyShow, said, “The year 2018 witnessed great demand for both movies and live events. On one hand mega blockbusters like 2.0, Padmaavat and Sanju entertained audiences at the box office, on the other, international experiences like Disney’s Aladdin and Cirque du Soleil Bazzar left audiences spellbound when it came to live events.”
2018 was truly a memorable year for the makers as well as the movie-goers!
