Director SS Rajamouli’s RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, has hit jackpot at the box office. The epic war drama, released March 25, collected a whopping Rs 500 crore at the box office worldwide in just three days and is going strong. The film has set a new benchmark in the trade circuit. RRR is single-handedly pulling the crowd back to the theatres post the Covid-19 lull.
The action film has been distributed in a variety of languages around the world. In fact, the release was often stalled because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
According to a Tweet by trade expert Taran Adarsh: “#RRR is setting new BENCHMARKS… Rs 500 cr [and counting]. WORLDWIDE GBOC *opening weekend* biz… EXTRAORDINARY Monday on the cards… #SSRajamouli brings back glory of INDIAN CINEMA. Note: Non-holiday release. Pandemic era (sic).”
