Karthikeya 2: Young Telugu actor Nikhil Siddhartha starrer Karthikeya 2 is stealing the show on big screens. Billed as an adventure thriller, the film is directed by Chandoo Mondeti and is a sequel to the 2014 film Karthikeya, which was also directed by Mondeti.
The film produced by Abhishek Agarwal Arts and People Media Factory, was released on August 13, 2022, in theaters and is currently doing exceptionally well at BO as well as winning audiences’ hearts. Along with the Telugu version, it was also released in dubbed Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions.
Nikhil Siddhartha has played as Dr. Karthikeya Kumaraswamy/Karthik. Actress Anupama Parameswaran and Bollywood’s veteran actor Anupam Kher also played pivotal roles in the film along with Srinivasa Reddy, Harsha Chemudu, Aditya Menon, Praveen, Satya and Tulasi.
Karthikeya 2 Hindi OTT Release Date
Karthikeya 2 is the talk of the town right now. The mystery adventure film is winning audiences’ hearts, not only in Telugu speaking states (Telangana and Andhra Pradesh) but also in North India.
The film which was earlier scheduled to be released on July 22, 2022 was postponed to August 12, 2022, to avoid a direct clash with Naga Chaitanya starrer Thank You. As the movie is doing really well in the theatres people are also excited to know about its OTT release date.
Well, there are many reports which are claiming that the post theatrical streaming rights of the film has been acquired by India’s own OTT streaming platform Zee5. It is also being said that the film will stream on the platform 50 days after its theatre release.
Hindi audience which is showering immense love in the film is also waiting for the film to be released on OTT. In our opinion, it will take a bit long for them to watch the Hindi version on OTT because it is doing great in the Hindi belt and as the days are passing, more audiences are entering cinema halls to enjoy the show. So it will take a bit of time to get a premiere date in Hindi on OTT.
Karthikeya 2 Box-Office Performance
The film is only growing bigger and bigger with each passing day and is heading towards a sensational blockbuster. It opened to highly positive reviews and collected a total gross of Rs. 8.5 crore worldwide and Rs. 25 crore at the worldwide box-office in its opening weekend.
The success of Karthikeya 2 in Telugu speaking states was somewhat expected but the success of the Hindi version is totally unprecedented. Despite locking horns with big Bollywood films like Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan, the film is showing an exceptional performance in Hindi belt, where theaters are going housefull.
On the first day, only 200+ screens were allotted to its Hindi version which has now gone to more than 1500. Even on working days, the film is going houseful in Hindi belt, where it has grossed Rs. 1.45 crore in just 5-6 days. This just proved yet again where content is strong, there is no language barrier.
