Allu Arjun beats Thalapathy Vijay at Box Office: Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise has now added another feather in its cap at the Box Office. The film, which has recorded a tremendous business in the Hindi belt, is also running solid overseas. The Sukumar-directorial registered a worldwide collection of Rs 300 crore on Sunday and became only the sixth South Indian film, and first for Allu Arjun, to have achieved that feat.
Pushpa: The Rise Part I also beat Thalapathy Vijay starrer Bigil to have its place in the top five South Indian movies at the worldwide Box Office. While Bigil, which was released in 2019, raked in Rs 304.70 crore (approx) during its lifetime run at the Box Office worldwide, Pushpa has collected Rs 306 crore and is still running. What else? The film has also cemented Allu Arjun’s position as a solid bankable star in terms of the Box Office presence at the international level.
