After setting the domestic box office on fire, Rajamouli’s pan-Indian epic ‘RRR’ has become the highest grossing Indian film in Japan. In the process ‘RRR’ deposed Rajinikanth starrer ‘Muthu’ after 24 years.
Released this November in Japan, Ram Charan and NTR starrer ‘RRR’ collected over 403 million yen or around Rs 24 crore at the Japanese box office, surpassing ‘Muthu’ in the process.
The film team recently visited Japan to promote the film ahead of its theatrical release.
The film has grossed over Rs 1,200 crore worldwide since its release in March this year.
Rajamouli’s epic multi-starrer ‘RRR’ is literally ruling the world, if the flurry of accolades coming its way is any indication. Among other things, earlier, the film won the New York Film Critics Circle Award. Recently, ‘RRR’ received nominations for two Golden Globe Awards. The creators are also aiming for Oscars.
‘RRR’ joins ‘Muthu’ and ‘Baahubali’ (also directed by Rajamouli) as one of the top three Indian hits in Japan. With this success, Rajamouli holds the distinction of directing two of the three most successful Indian films in Japanese cinema history.
