Rajamouli's RRR has been creating headlines even 7 months after its theatrical release.

The Pan-Indian blockbuster has released in Japan on Friday to a great response. The film recorded the best opening ever for an Indian film in Japan, beating the likes of Prabhas' Saaho on the list.

The first day's highest admissions of the previous Indian movies are Saaho - 6509, Baahubali2 - 1382, and Dangal - 1265. RRR crossed all of them and recorded 8233 admissions on its first day.

The RRR team, including Rajamouli, Ram Charan, and Jr NTR are currently in Japan to promote their film. Their spouses and family have also joined them on the trip. Pictures and videos of the two stars meeting overwhelmed fans have surfaced on the internet. 

Helmed by SS Rajamouli, RRR is a fictional story based on the lives of two freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. Ram Charan and Jr NTR played lead roles, respectively. The film collected over 1,200 crores worldwide.

Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn also starred in the blockbuster. Recently, RRR fans were disappointed as SS Rajamouli's directorial was not selected as India's official entry for Oscars 2023. 

However, last week, the makers started their 'for your consideration' campaign, asking for nominations in as many as 14 categories, these include Best Picture (DVV Danayya), Best Director (SS Rajamouli), Best Actor (Jr NTR and Ram Charan), Best Supporting Actor (Ajay Devgn), Best Supporting Actress (Alia Bhatt) and more.
