Pushpa: The Rise’ has become a phenomenon, and actor Allu Arjun, a force to reckon with. The film’s meteoric success at the box office despite competition from films ’83’ and ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, is simply outstanding.
Reportedly, the film has crossed the Rs 325-crore mark but doesn’t look like it is in any mood to slow down. For those who still failed to catch the film in theatres, ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video in four languages – Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Now, we hear that the OTT giants will release the Hindi version of ‘Pushpa’ on January 14.
‘Pushpa: The Rise’, directed by Sukumar, hit the theatres on December 17. Since then, the film has been running successfully worldwide. ‘Pushpa’ has been received particularly well in the Hindi belt, despite competition from Ranveer Singh’s ’83’.
Despite the raging novel coronavirus pandemic, ‘Pushpa’ has withstood everything at the box office for 25 days and has shattered many box office records.
According to Box Office Biz, the actioner has grossed over Rs 326 crore worldwide with a share of Rs 176 crore by the end of 23 days.
