Stylish Star Alu Arjun’s biggest blockbuster Sarrainodu is making waves in North India. The film, directed by Boyapati Srinu, was dubbed in Hindi under the same name and it had its world premiere on Sony Max on May 28. On the same day, the film was uploaded on Youtube and within three days, it got more than 14.4 million views, the most by any Indian film so far.
Within the first 24 hours after the film was uploaded on Youtube, it crossed 6.1 million views, which is the highest ever for an Indian film. In fact, Sarrainodu got more views in three days than what Salman Khan’s Tubelight trailer managed to get in six days. The views were thrice the number of views which Kapil Sharma’s show got in the same amount of time.
That’s not all. Sarrainodu’s Hindi version was trending at number 1 position in countries like Australia, UAE, Bahrain, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Even after three days, the film is among the top 20 trending videos on Youtube which gives a hint at the massive rage that the film has become. In the past, Allu Arjun’s Son of Satyamurthy’s dubbed version got more than 30 million views, the highest for any dubbed film. Looking at all these trends, there’s no doubt that Allu Arjun has become increasingly popular with the Hindi-speaking audience as well.
The original film, produced by Geetha Arts, did record business in Telugu in 2016 and it’s continuing to make news in newer markets. Rakul Preet and Catherine Tresa played the lead roles, alongside Allu Arjun. Thaman had scored the music for the action drama.
