In the meantime, Ashish Saxena, COO of BookMyShow, told News18.com, “While expectedly the Telugu version of the film is leading the way, Hindi and Tamil languages of the film have contributed to 38% of the ticket sales reinforcing the demand for compelling content in India that is language-agnostic. A smashing success in Hyderabad for the Telugu version, Bengaluru is a close second in terms of audience interest for the film in the language. Dominated by both Mumbai and Delhi-NCR for the Hindi version and Chennai for the Tamil version, ‘RRR’ has seen a fabulous start to its theatrical journey across geographies and borders.”
