Ramaleela, the Malayalam political entertainer of Janapriyanayakan Dileep, performed tremendously well ever since its release on September 28.
Despite locking horns with Manju Warrier's Udaharanam Sujatha, Arun Gopy's directorial venture garnered massive response from the audience, all thanks to the anti-Ramaleela campaign that surfaced in the wake of Dileep's arrest in the sensational actress assault case.
Now, the movie's director Arun has officially announced on the Dileep-starrer crossing the Rs 55 crore mark in 55 days of its theatrical run from the worldwide box office.
