Kannada-origin movie KGF Chapter 2 has scripted several new global records as an Indian cinema. Helmed by Prashanth Neel, starring Yash, Srinidhi Shetty, Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon, KGF 2 went on to become the second highest-grossing Indian cinema. With IMDb ratings of 8.5, the Yash-starrer was the most-anticipated film and grossed over Rs 1200 crore worldwide.

KGF 2 grabbed the second spot, just behind 'Baahubali: The Conclusion', after outranking SS Rajamouli's RRR. The Ram Charan, Jr NTR and Alia Bhatt starrer went on to become the highest-grossing Indian Cinema ever in terms of first-day collections that released on March 24. However, Yash-starrer KGF 2 went on to become the highest-grossing cinema in Hindi. 

But now it seems RRR may once again retain its position at the second spot exceeding the lifetime collection of KGF 2. 

Yes, after the announcement of release of RRR in Japan, such speculations have emerged and created a buzz putting fans in a fix.

Recently, following the global demand for RRR, the movie re-released in several countries. The jaw-dropping action sequences, story plot and impeccable performances of Ram and Jr NTR have won the hearts of one and all including several Hollywood celebrities. The demands for a re-release grew after the Hollywood celebrities showered praises for the movie. 

The makers on Thursday made the announcement of releasing RRR in Japan on October 21. The announcement has filled excitement among fans but has raised worries among KGF admirers. 

The caption for the announcement read: Delighted to announce that #RRRMovie is releasing in Japan on 21st Oct, 2022. #RRRinJapan

As per reports, the RRR's lifetime collection stands at Rs 1139.27 crore while KGF 2's collection was Rs 1242.39 crore. 

Now, speculations have been raised if the re-release of RRR overseas will help the Rajamouli flick to retain its second spot in the list of top grosser Indian cinemas with the highest box office collection and outrank the Yash-starrer.

Will RRR's re-release put KGF Chapter 2's global record in danger? Will RRR be able to retain its second spot? Well, time will raise the curtains.
