'Karthikeya 2' has a strong Gujarat connection. The mystical adventure thriller was shot in the Western State predominantly. The Dwaraka connection was also integral to the film's story.
The news is that Guj Chief Minister Bhupendrabhai Patel yesterday watched the pan-India blockbuster and appreciated the team for trying to spread good vibes about Lord Krishna's imagery and mythology.
Culturally, the Hindi audience are establishing a strong connect with the film's themes. In Hindi, 'Karthikeya 2' might collect another Rs 10 Cr (already it has minted a nett figure of nearly Rs 25 Cr) by the end of its lifetime.
The film, starring Nikhil Siddhartha and directed by Chandoo Mondeti, has collected many times more than its budget. It's a monster hit all over.
