On the other hand, OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus Hotstar and Zee5 had captivated the audience with their content. But when South Cinema’s Pan India films were released in theaters in the Hindi belt, all boundaries were broken. First of all, Allu Arjun’s movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ proved that the craze for theater is still intact among the people by earning bumpers at the box office. If the movie is good, people will definitely come to theaters to see it. This movie did wonders earning 380 crores worldwide, of which 108 crores were earned from the Hindi belt alone.
After the movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise’, the highly anticipated movie ‘RRR’ by famous Bahubali director SS Rajamouli was released on March 25. This film made many box office records on the day of its release. The film has done well in all languages. His worldwide collection has exceeded Rs 1,100 crore, of which Rs 300 crore has been received from the Hindi box office alone. Similarly, Rocking Star Yash’s movie KGF Chapter 2, directed by Prashanth Neel, has also done well as expected. The worldwide collection of this film has exceeded 1.2 billion rupees. This includes the earnings of the Hindi version of Rs 430 crore. Among these films from the South, it is also necessary to mention Viveg Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’.
