Thalapathy Vijay and Pooja Hegde starrer Beast, censored with U/A certificate, will be theatrically released worldwide on April 13. Following the roaring success of Vijay's Master, fans are eyeing for his upcoming Beast. While the makers were in a fix to lock the release date for Beast, it was finally decided on March 22.

It was earlier speculated that Vijay's Beast will clash with Yash's KGF Chapter 2 at the Box Office. However, the makers opted to pre-pone the release date and release it a day earlier. Though Vijay's flick will hit the theatres a day ahead, technically both will lock horns at the Box Office.

While the Tamil actor has a separate fan base in the southern region, Yash's fandom sprawls overseas including the several northern states of the country. Meanwhile, fans have been speculating if Beast's earlier release will affect the opening of KGF Chapter 2 on April 14.

Essential Factors To Consider

Fan Base

Considering the current facts, both the actors have separate fan bases. While Vijay has massive following in the south region as compared to Kannada actor Yash, recently, a few of his songs and hook steps have streamed craze among viewers.

On the other hand, following the success of KGF Chapter 1, the craze for the sequel part is on another level. Even, anticipation among fans is skyrocketing with each passing day. The craze for Yash and KGF 2 has been notably sprawling in northern states as well. The Kannada star has built a fan base even in Mumbai, which is the heartland of Indian cinema.

Multilingual Vs South Dubbed Versions

KGF 2 will be released in multiple languages, including Hindi. Thus, it will be quite easy for Yash to pull the audience to the theatres in large numbers. On the other hand, it is not yet clarified if Beast will release in Hindi or not. Some reports suggest that the makers are in talks to sell the Hindi remake rights. Therefore, under such circumstances, KGF 2 will have maximum access to the audience.


Moreover, KGF is a cash-fetching flick and more theatres across the country will be releasing the movie in comparison with Beast. Well, it can be accurately judged after witnessing the number of theatres releasing KGF Chapter 2 and Beast.

Who Will Triumph?

However, all have to wait to witness if Yash's KGF Chapter 2 will lord over Beast or both the flicks will run giving a tough competition to each other. But, the present undercurrents suggest that KGF 2 will triumph over Beast in terms of Box Office collection pan-India.

Not A Clash!

However, many have also opined that it is not justified to term it as a clash. 

Actor-journalist, Avinash Ramachandran Tweeted, "It is not #Beast-#Vijay vs #KGFChapter2-#Yash, It's two homegrown stars from Tamil and Kannada taking over the collective conscience of India's movie-going audience next month. It is the biggest showcase of the Rise and Rise of the "Regional language" films."
