Ram Pothineni’s Red hit the screens amid many expectations for Sankranti. The movie directed by Gopichand Malineni is a remake of the Tamil movie ‘Thandam’. Ram’s dual role amassed huge curiosity among the audience and they are filling 100% of the 50% permitted occupancy in the theatres.
Actually, Red was expected to collect about 4.5 crores on the first day. But to the much amazement of the makers, the movie has collected about 6.7 Cr worldwide.
This is a thunderous achievement for Ram as it collected such huge amounts in spite of stiff Sankranti competition from other films and also the restrictions on theatres occupancy due to the pandemic.
