As such, after the release of Sooryavanshi, there was a line of films.But with the slowing down of 83, another knock of Corona stalled the whole plan. Where films from RRR to Gangubai and Radhe Shyam to Prithvirat were supposed to explode in January itself, with Corona’s next knock, all January releases were pushed ahead.

bachchan pandey holi faded
Akshay Kumar’s Holi release Bachchan Pandey knocked at the box office after The Kashmir Files. But Bachchan Pandey’s Holi remained colorless in front of The Kashmir Files.

That too when Akshay had not given any flop film in the last decade. The budget of the film is 180 crores.
This was followed by the storm of IRRR at the box office, which created havoc at the Telugu box office and the world box office as well as the Hindi box office. Within 7 days of release, RRR has earned 120 crores at the Hindi box office and has also become the fastest 100 crore Hindi film since the Corona period.
