About Rajamouli, RRR

Rajamouli is in Japan with his son-producer SS Karthikeya for the special screenings of his hit RRR. The film premiered in Japan on October 21, 2022, months after its release in India. The film, starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR, earned over 410 million yen (approximately 23 crore) at the Japanese box office.

RRR followed a pre-independence fictional story woven around two real-life Indian revolutionaries — Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) — in the 1920s. The film raised over 1,200 crore at the global box office and went on to win the Best Original Song Oscar for its track Naatu Naatu.
