RRR becomes the highest-grossing Indian film in Japan with more than ₹80 crore
The epic film RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli and released on October 21 of last year in Japan, is currently in its 20th week of nonstop theatrical distribution and has earned more than 80 crore there. The movie, which opened in 209 theatres and 31 Imax locations across 44 Japanese towns and prefectures, has become the highest-grossing Indian production there.
The movie is currently in its 20th week of release in Japanese theatres, according to the RRR official Twitter account of director SS Rajamouli, “This tweet’s engagement and compliments demonstrate how RRR is gradually penetrating into the roots of Japan with each passing day. Glad that the film is drawing exceptionally high footfalls and is currently running in 202 cinemas in its 20th week! Love you Japan (sic).”
According to a Box Office India report, the movie RRR, starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, has already made over 80 crores and is projected to surpass 100 crores by the end of its theatrical run in Japan. The amazing action sequences in RRR, which earned over 1000 crore globally throughout its theatrical run, were praised.
RRR made history earlier this week when it won the Oscar for Best Original Song, becoming the first Indian production to do so. Naatu Naatu was played live at the 2023 Oscars, and it received a standing ovation. Every time she announced the name of the song or the movie, the audience clapped in support of Deepika Padukone as she introduced the performance.
Naatu Naatu genuinely rose to the status of a global phenomenon in recent months. The soundtrack caused the crowds to cheer and dance in the aisles at all of its most recent showings in the west. RRR is a fictional story based on the lives of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, two well-known rebels who lived in the pre-independence era of the 1920s. Jr. NTR played Bheem while Ram Charan played Ram.
