The animated flick Kung Fu Panda 4 is currently in its ninth week and is having a successful run in India. It completed 50 days in cinemas last week and in Week 8, it achieved a significant feat. It crossed the collections of Incredibles 2 (2018).

In 7 weeks, Kung Fu Panda 4 had collected Rs. 36.47 crores at the box office. Incredibles 2, meanwhile, had collected Rs. 36.90 crores in its lifetime. In the 8th week, Kung Fu Panda 4 collected Rs. 65 lakhs and thus crossed the earnings of the Disney Pixar film. Its eight-week collections stand at Rs. 37.12 crores.

Kung Fu Panda has emerged as a successful series in India and has a following not just among the kids but also the adults. It is also miles ahead of the Despicable Me-Minions franchise; their previous film, Minions: The Rise Of Gru (2022) collected just Rs. 12.62 crores.

Coming back to Kung Fu Panda franchise, the third part, Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016), had collected Rs. 32 crores, despite having a delayed release in India. Hence, the expectations were there from the fourth instalment. Yet, the way it opened and continued to grow from strength to strength, especially on the weekends, brought cheer. The dry period at the box office also went in favour of the animated flick. In its 7th week, it collected Rs. 1.13 crores, which is, more than its earnings in Week 6 (Rs. 1.10 crores).

Also, what is significant is that it beat the collections of the Sidharth Malhotra-starrer Yodha. The hijack drama was released on the same day as Kung Fu Panda 4 and had a bigger release. Yet, it managed to collect Rs. 32.45 crores in its lifetime. Kung Fu Panda 4’s collections are also better than other significant Hindi releases this year like Merry Christmas, Crakk, Laapataa Ladies etc.

When compared with Hollywood films, it is the second biggest hit of 2024 after the Rs. 100 crore grosser, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. Interestingly, Dune: Part Two has done better at the global box office than Kung Fu Panda 4. But in India, the sci-fi action entertainer has collected around Rs. 28 crores and pales behind the animated film.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is now the third-highest animation grosser in India. The other two films ahead of it are Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (2023), which collected a huge Rs. 44.85 crores. Frozen 2 (2019), meanwhile, continues to be in the number 1 position as it collected Rs. 47.03 crores.

Animated films don’t have a huge market in India compared to the West and hence, these numbers are significant. It now remains to be seen if any animated movie manages to cross the Rs. 50 crores mark in the country in the near future.
