RRR creates a big history in Japan

While laurels and plaudits continue to pour in by western moviegoers and critics, SS Rajamouli’s epic spectacle RRR is enjoying a dream and unprecedented box office run in Japan. After its release on October 21st, RRR initially received a good response from the Japanese audiences. The core team of RRR promoted the film aggressively by interacting with the media and the public there. It later went on to emerge as the biggest-grossing Indian film of all time. However, the collections slowed down after a few weeks. Surprisingly, the film gained huge momentum after it won a popular award in that country.

After 12 weeks, the box office revenues saw a huge jump as it added ¥72 Million and ¥ 120 million in the next couple of weeks. With a massive ¥ 715 million, the film is now targeting the ¥ 1 Billion mark in its full run. Further, RRR also pulled off a historic feat by emerging as the first Indian film to run for 100 days in more than 100 centres across the country. This is an unbelievable and unheard of achievement for a foreign film in Japan.

An ecstatic SS Rajamouli took to Twitter and shared his excitement on this rare feat. He posted –

‘Back in those days, a film running for 100days, 175 days etc was a big thing. The business structure changed over time…Gone are those fond memories…

But the Japanese fans are making us relive the joy ❤️❤️

Love you Japan… Arigato Gozaimasu…🙏🏽🙏🏽 #RRRinJapan #RRRMovie’
