Pushpa can make more records
Pushpa has earned Rs 74.44 crore until the fourth week. Pushpa’s earnings in the fourth week and the latest conditions at the box office are indicating that Allu Arjun’s film may go further. There are reasons for this. Actually, no movies have been released at the Hindi box office since December 31st. The release of films such as Jersey, RRR, Radheshyam and Prithviraj have been postponed. Due to the lack of new films, the films that are already in theaters, especially Pushpa, are gaining audience in theaters. Allu Arjun’s movie is likely to keep winning until at least the fourth week in case the theaters are not closed.
The film, directed by Sukumar, may also set the record for becoming the highest grossing film in the fourth week.
