Shinkai’s Suzume No Tojimari Overtakes Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Earnings In India

by AcklinEHuey

There wasn’t an ounce of doubt regarding the success of Makoto Shinkai’s Suzume No Tojimari movie in India. Not only is the director well respected and loved by the anime community in the country, his previous work, Weathering With You, had screened in Indian theatres after over 50,000 fans signed a petition to bring the film to the country.

So any previous record that the movie breaks or the new ones it sets in the future shouldn’t be seen as very surprising.

As with any anime movie released in the country, Suzume no Tojimari too was under heavy scrutiny when it came to its box office collections. The movie might have had a slow start, however, according to our sources in the industry, Suzume No Tojimari has finally overtaken the earnings of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie in India within 20 days of its release.

While the official earnings for the movie has not been revealed yet, the latest news confirms that Suzume has earned over ₹12.6 crore (Gross box office collections) at the Indian Box office.

The movie earned ₹3.79 crore in the first weekend, and then went on to earn ₹5.6 crore in the first week. Both these numbers paled in comparison to Jujutsu Kaisen 0, as the latter had earned ₹5.4 crore and ₹8.5 crore in its first weekend and week respectively.

The earnings will be updated once we get the proper figures!

The movie also overtook One Piece Film: Red to become the fourth highest grossing Japanese film around the world, earning $320 million.
