RRR surpassed Rs. 500 crores worldwide on Monday, making it the first Indian film to do so since 2.0 in November 2018. On Monday, the picture gained Rs. 58 crores to its domestic total and Rs. 10 crores to its international total, bringing the total to Rs. 538 crores in four days. The film, directed by S.S. Rajamouli, grossed Rs. 406 crores in India and Rs. 132 crores ($17.40 million) abroad.
Through Monday, the film was the tenth highest-grossing Indian film of all time. By Saturday, or at the very least Friday, it will be in the top five. With a final total of somewhere north of Rs. 1100 crores, the film will finish third, just behind Dangal and Baahubali 2.
RRR’s global box office collections by day are as follows:
192.50 crores on Friday
134.50 crores on Saturday
143 crores on Sunday
68 crores on Monday
538 crores in total
Internationally, the Telugu version dominated the first weekend, but by Monday, the Hindi version was making a significant contribution, which is good news because the Hindi market is considerably more backloaded than the South Indian versions, which fizzle out quickly after the opening weekend.
North America leads all bets with a total bet of over/under $10 million, depending on Monday’s actuals. Only four Indian films have received double-digit box office receipts in the United States; RRR will make it five. Australia is another big performer, having crossed the A$2 million mark on Monday. After a sluggish start due to an unusual distribution strategy, the Middle East performed better on Sunday and Monday, with the original version of the picture doing the heavy lifting.
