The movie still looks strong. It is not very difficult to earn two hundred and fifty million rupees in terms of trends. The third week of the film will start from Friday. However, in week three, SS Rajamouli’s RRR may present a strong challenge to The Kashmir Files. In general, the topic of greatest interest in the third week will be the compilation of The Kashmir Files vs. RRR. RRR’s opening in the Hindi belt and opening weekend will decide how successful the film was in stopping the pace of The Kashmir Files.
