The Ram Charan-starrer has surpassed Mahesh Babu's Srimanthudu and Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 to become Tollywood's third-highest grosser of all time, trailing behind only SS Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion.
The film was released on March 30.
The Sukumar directorial set the tone of a blockbuster on day one itself when it amassed a whopping Rs 46 crore worldwide. The massive Rs 28.8 crore opening day gross in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana was more than twice of Ram Charan's previous best opener Bruce Lee - The Fighter, helmed by Sreenu Vaitla.
Ram Charan's Rangasthalam remained strong at the worldwide box office in its third week, inching closer to the Rs 200 crore gross in global markets in 17 days. However, the film has proved to be a victor at the box office and the makers are super confident that the dubbed versions will also create the same impact. The movie within a week managed to earn a crore, thus making it one of the highest earning Telugu films in Chennai. This makes the period drama Telugu film industry's greatest non-Baahubali hit. It is now inching towards the 3.5 million dollar mark at the U.S. box office. Pawan Kalyan revealed at the meet that he had visited a theatre after 20 long years just to catch the film and heaped praises on Sukumar and Ram Charan. "Rangasthalam" will add more moolah to its kitty.
