The recently released sci-fi epic film ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ is unstoppable at the box-office.

While in India, the film raked in Rs 392.45 crore net, the gross worldwide collections of the film stood at Rs 700 crore after a week of its release. 
With this, the film has beaten the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer box-office extravaganza ‘Jawan’.

While ‘Jawan’ made Rs 600 crore after a week of its release, ‘Kalki 2898 AD’, with Rs 700 crore in its kitty, looks solid. However, it is still behind ‘RRR’ and ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’.

The film earned Rs 22.5 crore on Day 7. Out of this, the Telugu-speaking states formed a major chunk of the film’s collection in line with the initial trends.

It earned Rs 8.75 crore in Telugu on Day 7 followed by Rs 11.3 crore in Hindi as per industry tracker Sacnilk.

Currently, the morning occupancy for 3D shows in Telugu for the film is at 18.32 per cent with night occupancy of 43.14 per cent.
