Key Highlight

RRR has achieved another significant milestone in Japan by crossing the $10 million mark. Though it could have been attained earlier if not for the weak exchange rates of the Yen in recent times. Notably, the twenty-first week of the film's run in Japan marked its biggest week yet, with JPY 125 million, representing a 60% growth from the previous week. This surge in revenue can be attributed to the "Oscars bump" resulting from the movie's Best Song win at the 95th Academy Awards ceremony held last Sunday. While Best Song is not considered a major category like Best Picture or Best Actor, its win has still provided a considerable boost to the film's collection.

RRR to cross Rs. 1200 crores worldwide

As of last night, the SS Rajamouli-directed epic has grossed JPY 1348 million ($10.10 million) in Japan. Consequently, the movie's worldwide total now stands at a staggering Rs. 1199 crores and is expected to cross Rs. 1200 crores today. Last week, RRR surpassed KGF Chapter 2 to become the third highest-grossing Indian film and is currently consolidating its position.

Total - JPY 1348 million (USD 10.10 million / Rs. 82 crores)

As evident from the data above, the film has barely shown any drop in collections over the last two months or so. The twentieth week of the film was 5 per cent higher than its thirteenth week, that’s when the whole awards season surge started. With such sustained momentum, it is difficult to predict where the film's collections will end up, especially considering Japan's tendency to produce such prolonged runs. However, it is highly likely that RRR will surpass the JPY 1.4 billion mark by the end of Sunday and comfortably hit JPY 1.5 billion, possibly targeting the coveted JPY 2 billion mark over the next couple of months.
