SS Rajamouli’s RRR continues to do wonders at the box office in Japan. The film has already completed a run of a month in theatres and is still refusing to slow down. Thanks to such consistency, the numbers have now hit a new milestone and are just inches away from crossing Rajinikanth‘s Muthu. Keep reading to know more.
The Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer has already achieved a lot ever since its release in Japan. After taking a record start, the film went on to cross several Indian box office hits like Saaho and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion in the country. As of now, it is the second highest-grossing Indian film at the Japanese box office. Soon it is going to be at the no. 1 spot!
Now, as per the report in TrackTollywood.com, RRR has earned 20 crores so far at the Japanese box office. It’s a new achievement and the film is lagging behind Rajinikanth’s Muthu by a small margin. For the unversed, Muthu was released two decades ago and is still gracing the throne of being the highest-grossing Indian film in Japan.
Muthu had reportedly made 23.50 crores in Japan and RRR is expected to cross that number in the next few days. So, it’s going to be another feather in the hat of SS Rajamouli’s film.
Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed by both SS Rajamouli and his father-veteran writer KV Vijayendra Prasad that the basic idea for RRR 2 has been cracked and the writing work is already in progress.
