Prabhas starrer Salaar is all set to hit the screens in Japan. Indian movies have previously tasted commercial success in the country. After creating a rage at the worldwide box office in late last year, Salaar is expected to mint millions in Japan as well. Before Salaar, Prabhas’ Baahubali franchise has performed well in the region. However, the highest-grossing Indian film at the Japanese box office does not belong to the Telugu superstar or anyone from Bollywood.

The Tamil superstar’s Muthu (1995) has minted 400M Yen ($3.06M) at the Japanese box office. The number 2 and 3 spots are occupied by Prabhas starrer Baahubali 2 and Baahubali respectively. Both movies have been directed by SS Rajamouli. Another film of the Rebel star, Saaho, cliched the 4th spot with 35M Yen ($235K) earnings, followed by Magadheera, starring Ram Charan, at the 5th spot.
