After becoming a big hit at the UK box office and US box office, the film would now release in Japan. If reports are to be believed the film would hit the theatres in Japan, by next week
It has to be noted that, not all Malayalam films get released in Japan. Only those films, which are huge in demand make it to the theatres in the country.
Most recently, it was the Dulquer Salmaan starrer Charlie, which went on to make a big impact in Japan. The film, which released with Japanese titles were applauded by the audiences.
Going by the amazing response that Pulimurugan has received so far, the film in all probabilities would set some records in Japan, as well. Recently, the film was released in UAE & GCC and did set some big records straight away.
Meanwhile, the film still continues to do a steady business in centres in Kerala. There has been a slight drop in the box office collection of the money, owing to the note ban, which did come to effect by November 9, 2016.
