In Japan, SS Rajamouli’s RRR has outperformed Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots at the box office, moving up to third place among Indian movies there.
The monumental RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli and released on October 21 in Japan, has surpassed Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots to become the third most grossing Indian movie there. The movie, which opened in 44 cities and prefectures in Japan on 209 screens and 31 Imax screens, has made JPY 180 million in 17 days.
3 Idiots have made JPY 170 million in Japan during the course of their careers. With JPY 180 million, RRR has surpassed 3 Idiots to take third place on the list of highest-grossing Indian movies.
With a box office haul of JPY400 million, Rajinikanth’s Muthu, which was released 24 years ago, continues to be the highest grossing Indian movie of all time in Japan. The second-place film is SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 with a JPY300 million box office haul. The RRR of the director is currently in third place.
SS Rajamouli, Ram Charan, and Jr. NTR were in Japan three weeks ago promoting their movie. 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. Tarak was portrayed as Bheem while Ram Charan played Ram.
RRR, which was widely praised for its breathtaking action set pieces and made over Rs. 1000 crore in worldwide box office revenue during its theatrical run, was recently rereleased in a number of US cities as a part of the Beyond Fest.
The movie garnered a tremendous response from the audience when it was screened in October at TCL Chinese Theatre. The 932 seats at the theatre were sold out in 20 minutes, according to a Deadline story. The movie made $21,000 from the single showing, bringing its total box office revenue since its re-release to $221,156.
