Kung Fu Panda 3: Po and party trend well at Indian Box Office despite The Jungle Book & Fan

Kung Fu Panda 3, the third instalment of the Kung Fu Panda franchise, has raked in Rs 32 crore at the Indian Box Office. 

The film released on 700 screens in India targeted mainly towards the multiplexes as it did not carry the pan-Indian appeal of Disney's The Jungle Book.

The collections are the highest ever for an animated film in India by going past Ice Age 4 (Rs 18 crore approx) and Kung Panda 2 (Rs 13 crore approx) by a huge margin.

The opening weekend collections of Kung Fu Panda 3 stood at Rs 10.10 crore which was yet again the highest ever for an animated film in India.

This is rather a big leap in terms of the way animated films have fared in India as even Bollywood animated films like Delhi Safari and Roadside Romeo have failed to even breach the Rs 5 crore mark at ticket window.

The collections of Kung Fu Panda 3 would have been much higher had it not faced competition from The Jungle Book in its second week. Kung Fu Panda 3 is now looking to settle around Rs 34 crore in its lifetime run at the Box Office.

While the success of Kung Fu Panda 3 may open up new avenues for animated films in India, it will be interesting to see how Hollywood and Bollywood approach this genre.
