SS Rajamauli’s magnum opus “RRR” is still booming at the box office.
Looking at the film’s huge budget, the expectations for the film are simply high, and the Ram Charan and Jr NTR star has proven the mark with the film’s unstoppable run at the box office. The star-studded project, now in its second week, has become a big winner in theaters across the post-pandemic world.
Looking at the worldwide period drama figures, the film raked in Rs 710 crores. Sharing the numbers, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, ”’RRR’ IS IMPOSSIBLE, ESSENTIAL… *#Worldwide* Week 1 BOC Crude: ₹710 cr… *#India* BOC Crude: ₹ 560 cr… Next to #Baahubali2. #RRR #RRRMovie.”
The film has become the audience’s top pick, despite stiff competition from other new releases, whether it’s John Abraham’s “Attack” or MCU’s “Morbius.”
”#RRR remains the top choice for moviegoers, despite two new films hitting the market [#Attack, #Morbius]…Will cross ₹150 cr today…Expect strong growth on [second] Sat and Sun… [Week 2] Fri 13.50 cr. Total: ₹146.09 cr. #India biz,’ Taran Adarsh tweeted.

The film also topped the list of biggest opening films in Hindi markets in the post-pandemic world, overtaking Akshay Kumar’s ‘Suryavanshi’, Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and ‘The Kashmir Files’ by Vivek Agnihotri.
With the pan-Indian motif, the film crossed all the benchmarks we expected. The big-budget Telugu film, which had suffered several delays due to the covid-19 pandemic, is based on a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Rama Rao), who fought against the British.
