S.S. Rajamouli’s masterpiece creation RRR is currently at a record breaking spree at Indian box office. This South Indian action periodic drama has successfully managed to crross ₹ 300 crores box office collection mark in the opening two days and that too only with its India biz. Even in the Hindi belts business of RRR improved a bit as on Saturday 26 March 2022, it grossed an amount of ₹ 23.75 crores which took its total 2 days India Hindi belts income to ₹ 43.82 crores. Although quite interestingly S.S. Rajamouli’s previous big blockbuster Baahubali 2: The Conclusion grossed ₹ 42 crores from its day 1 biz at the Indian Hindi belts and there were reports that the makers of RRR are not happy with this but now it seems that the numbers are improving for RRR in Hindi regions of India as well.
Jr. NTR and Ram Charan are receiving a lot of love and praise from the audience because they have done an exceptional job as the lead actors but at the same time people are also appreciating the extended cameo appearances by Bollywood stars Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in RRR. S.S. Rajamouli has proved time and time again that for him production value is the most important thing rather then signing stars for ₹ 100 crores and more. There is no doubt that Magadheera, Baahubali 2 and RRR are three of the biggest films in the modern day cinema and all these 3 films have been by made only by one director i.e. S.S. Rajamouli. Those people who were calling the success of Baahubali 2 a mere fluke are now hiding somewhere in a corner as S.S. Rajamouli has proven yet again that without any doubt he is the best film director in India.
Although everyone was expecting that RRR will completely crush The Kashmir Files with its Tsunami at the Indian box office but now its seems that the things are totally different because TKF effect is badly impacting the earnings of RRR in the Hindi Belts. From what we have heard, In some parts of ‘Delhi, UP, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttarakhand’ theatres owners have refused to give TKF screens to RRR as many single screen owners are of the opinion that the Vivek Agnihotri directorial will be a lot more profitable for them.
Makers of RRR have done an exceptional job while promoting this film at a large scale before its release. Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood ‘Aamir Khan’ joined one of RRR’s pre-release promotional event and even on Bhuvan Bam’s Youtube talk show ‘Titu Talks’ Jr NTR, Ram Charan, and S.S. Rajamouli promoted this film. There is a great saying in the cinema industry, “Public Word of Mouth is the best way to Promote any Film” and now with the positive audience feedback RRR box office business is witnessing great growth with every passing day.
Both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have provided great boost to the overall business of RRR in the opening 3 days by increasing the standard prices of the tickets and as per our information tickets in these two states even on Sunday tickets were selling between the range of ₹ 2500 – ₹ 3000 and this is the major reason these two states are contributing the most towards its box office collection in entire India. In the state of Karnataka most of RRR shows are going houseful as in Bengaluru city tickets for next few days shows of RRR are already sold out.
Today on Sunday 27 March 2022, Almost 95% shows of RRR went fully packed in the South India and in the States of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana about 100% of its shows went houseful which is mind boggling. Even in the key Hindi belts of Delhi, UP, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan business of RRR jumped a lot and in these Hindi belts RRR has recorded a overall occupancy rate of 90% – 100% on day 3.
3rd Day (Sunday) Collection of RRR in India is ₹ 170 crores (approximately)
