The film was released in theaters across the country on December 17 last year, which has done a business of 257 crores within 17 days.

Similarly, many films of the South Film Industry are going to be released this year at the Pan India level. Among them, RRR, Radhe Shyam, and KGF are 2 prominent. In such a situation, the question arises whether South’s films releasing this year will be able to break the record of ‘Pushpa’ earning? Let us know who has the power.
Best 5 Upcoming South Action Movies
1. Movie – आरआरआर (RRR)
The film RRR, which is set to release in theaters on January 7 this month, has been postponed due to Corona’s new variant Omicron. Directed by ‘Baahubali’ fame director SS Rajamouli, the film stars South cinema superstars Ram Charan, NTR Jr., Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris, Alison Doody, and Ray Stevenson, Bollywood actors Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. RRR is a period action film, whose story is set in the era of British rule. It is a fictional story based on the lives of Indian freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. The budget of the film is said to be around Rs 450 crore. The box office has high expectations from this film. It is estimated that the film can do business of 1500 crores.
If the conditions are good. If the effect of Corona is reduced and the restrictions are removed, then the business of the film ‘RRR’ is going to be very good at the box office. The film can earn 20 to 25 crores on an opening day. Not only this, its first week (Friday to Sunday) collection can go beyond 100 crores. By the way, without release, the film has put 900 crores in its bag. This money has been received from the distribution rights of the film. The Telugu rights of the film being released pan India have been sold for Rs 165 crore, Hindi rights for Rs 140 crore, Kannada rights for Rs 15 crore, Malayalam rights for Rs 45 crore, and overseas rights for Rs 70 crore. Digital rights have been sold for around Rs 150 crore. Anyway, the name of the three ‘R’ of the film i.e. Rajamouli, Ram Charan, and NTR is enough.
2. Movie – राधे श्याम (Radhey Shyam)
Directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, ‘Radhe Shyam’ is all set to hit the theaters on January 14. It stars Pan India Superstar Prabhas, Actress Pooja Hegde, Actor Sachin Khedekar, Krishnam Raju, Priyadarshi, Bhagyashree, Murli Sharma, and Kunal Roy Kapur in important roles. Radha Krishna Kumar has written the story of this period sci-fi romantic drama film. The film has been shot in Telugu and Hindi languages, jointly produced by Prabhas’s home banner Gopikrishna Movies, UV Creations, and T-Series. The film’s music is composed by Justin Prabhakaran while cinematography is done by Manoj Paramhans and edited by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao. The presence of a superstar like Prabhas in the film is enough to pull the audience to the theatres, but at this time Corona is growing rapidly.
Theaters in Delhi have already been closed due to Corona’s new variant Omicron. In terms of earnings, big circles like Maharashtra are opening with 50 percent capacity. In other states like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan, shows have been curtailed due to the imposition of night curfew. In such a situation, films released during the third wave of Corona may face losses at the box office. The film ‘Radhe Shyam’ can also become a victim in this. By the way, if the film was released on normal days, then it can make a global collection of 40 to 50 crores on an opening day. It includes collections of all languages and overseas. Its Hindi digital rights have been bought by Netflix for about Rs 250 crore. Zee5 has bought the digital rights for the Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam versions of the film.
