RRR’s release has been an unprecedented success, bringing in never imagined collections. RRR released in Japan in October last year and has broken every single record for an Indian release, both in terms of footfalls and collections. NTR, Ram Charan, and Rajamouli had visited the easternmost country during its premieres for promotions, and it is safe to say that even they would not have expected this level of love for the film.
Now RRR has crossed the ¥2Billion mark (122 Crores) in Japan in 206 days. This is definitely a super sensational achievement and a benchmark for an Indian film. The movie had initially released to lesser-than-expected openings but gradually picked up the pace, beating all others. The Oscar win of Naatu Naatu also helped the movie’s popularity and the collections saw a great surge post the event.
This multistarrer action blockbuster became the highest-grossing Indian film in Japan. The film crossed Muthu’s record that has been standing for more than 2 decades in the easternmost country. As said above, no one expected the Japan’s release of RRR to be this much successful, but the film surpassed everyone’s expectations and created many records at the box office. Collecting a massive figure of ¥2Billion mark (122 Crores) in Japan for 206 days is really a big benchmark for an Indian Film.
After Muthu, Baahubali was also received quite well in Japan, earning both Prabhas and Rana great adulation from the local fans. And now, RRR has also managed to win the hearts of the Japanese.
