Allu Arjuns film has surpassed the Rs 300 crore mark at the box office.

Pushpa The Rise, starring Allu Arjun, is defying the odds at the box office. The film has amassed a worldwide gross of Rs 300 crore. Despite the competition, its regional adaptations continue to dominate the box office. The Hindi version of Pushpa The Rise performed well in its third weekend. On Saturday, the film brought in Rs 6.10 crore, bringing the total to Rs 56.69 crore. Pushpa The Rise is expected to earn Rs 75 crore, according to trade expert Taran Adarsh.

"#Pushpa is SENSATIONAL… Despite restrictions, #PushpaHindi Day 16 records its highest single day number… Trending is an eye opener, a case study… Speeding towards ₹ 75 cr… Power of SOLID CONTENT… [Week 3] Fri 3.50 cr, Sat 6.10 cr. Total: ₹ 56.69 cr. #India biz," the tweet read.

Earlier, Allu Arjun opened up on the success of the film in the Hindi regions. "We didn't expect to be very honest," he said, adding, "We were releasing it in Hindi to test waters, but I am glad that it has paid off so well. Somewhere deep inside, I had this feeling that it will pay off because I have seen some kind of a pulse in North India."

He continued, "I give credit to the Indian multi-genre format – the songs, fights, drama, love story and humor. Indian films are multi-genre films. Our films are very typical. If you take western films, they cater to only one or two genres. It could be horror- comedy, thriller or action. It won't be multi-genre. I think, heartland of India misses multi-genre format films. So, it's this format that has resulted in our success and that's what I call Indian cinema."

Allu Arjun was teary-eyed when he spoke about the support he received from his family at the film's success meet.

"I'm only grateful to only a few people in life. My parents for giving me life, my grandfather for bringing us into the cinema world, Chiranjeevi for supporting me and Sukumar. After Arya, 5 to 6 years later, I bought a car which cost Rs 85 lakh and when I held the steering wheel to drive, I thought how did I come so far and the first person who came to mind was Sukumar sir. Without you, I'm nothing, sir," said Allu Arjun in his speech at the event.

Pushpa The Rise was released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi on December 17th. Pushpa The Rule, a sequel to the film, will be released. The filmmakers, on the other hand, have yet to share any specifics about it.
