The buzz is that the filmmakers probably won’t release the Hindi version of Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna’s latest blockbuster Pushpa: The Rise as the movie premieres on Amazon Prime Video on fridaynight. The filmmakers are quite impressed with the film’s box office performance in North Markets that they have apparently decided to hold back the Hindi version until the theatrical collection stops.
Even after three weeks, Pushpa records firm footsteps in the cinemas. So much so that it has earned more than Ranveer Singh’s sports drama 83 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home during the weekdays. “#Pushpa juggernaut continues… #PushpaHindi emerges as first choice of moviegoers, overtaking #83TheFilm and #SpiderMan on weekdays… [Week 3] Fri 3.50 cr, Sat 6.10 cr, Sun 6.25 cr, Mon 2.75 cr, Tues 2.50 cr, Wed 2.25 cr, Thu 2.05 cr. Total: ₹ 72.49 cr. #India biz. SUPER-HIT 9sic),” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

According to him, Pushpa earned more than Rs 26 crore in the first week and by the end of the second week it had collected just over Rs 20 crore. During its third week, till Friday, the film grossed Rs 25 crore, bringing the total to more than Rs 72 crore so far just from the Hindi version.
The total collection of Pushpa of all versions stands at more than Rs 300 crore. However, the movie is said he suffered a loss in Andhra Pradesh due to the low limit on ticket prices. According to AndhraPradeshBoxOffice.com, the film’s producers have decided to reimburse 50 percent of the film distributors’ losses.
Pushpa, meanwhile, will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video from 8pm.
