We had reported not very long ago that S.S. Rajamouli's RRR has broken into the top 5 grossing Indian films in Japan and that the film is well-placed to end up as one of the biggest of all time. Quite indeed, the period epic film is living up to the huge expectations it has set for itself as Day #21 proves to be a successful one.

As reported by team RRR, the film has managed to collect more on Day 21 than the opening day (Day 1), which puts things in perspective. As per the most recent trade reports, RRR has managed to earn close to JPY200 million to become the third highest-grossing Indian film at the Japanese box office: S.S. Rajamouli's previous blockbuster Baahubali: The Conclusion and Rajinikanth's 1995 film Muthu take the second and first spots respectively. 

RRR released in Japan on October 21 and scored the biggest opening for an Indian in the country with Rs. 1.06 crores. The opening three-day weekend fetched over Rs. 3.60 crores or JPY65 million which put the film on course to be a massive commercial success, provided it sustained a long run. And the Jr. NTR and Ram Charan - starrer did so as fourth-week proceedings at the box office suggest that team RRR is in this for the long haul. Reportedly, the film is running to packed houses during the weekend.

RRR has been released in Japan by Keizo Kabata's Twin in 209 screens and 31 IMAX screens across 44 cities, as reported by Variety. The same report also highlights the wide release that RRR has to itself in Japan in comparison with some of the previous Indian films. Although Muthu, which ran close to a year in Japan, was released mainly in arthouse cinemas on limited screens, there isn't any considerable inflation in ticket prices during the past 24 years. Reportedly, the tickets for Muthu were priced at JPY1800 in 1998 with RRR's tickets being sold at JPY1900.
