19 Dec – SS Rajamouli has succeeded in breaking a record held for many years by Rajinikanth by having "RRR" surpassing "Muthu" at the Japanese box office.
As reported on Times of India, the movie has now managed to become the highest grossing Indian film in Japan, as it crossed 410 million yen (approx. USD 2.99 million) at the Japanese box office.
This is 10 million yen more than "Muthu", which made 400 million yen at the box office in 1995.
Celebrating the big milestone, the official Twitter account for "RRR" movie tweeted, ''Delighted to share that #RRRMovie is now the highest grossing film with the highest footfall for an Indian Film in Japan!' Thank you all for the love you showered on our stars and director ever since the film's release."
This is another achievement for the movie after last week, when it was announced that the film has been nominated in two categories - Best Non-English Language Film and Best Original Song - at the Golden Globe Awards.
