For the unversed, Uri: The Surgical Strike, that released on January 11, turned out to one of the biggest blockbusters of 2019, earning close to Rs 250 crore at the box office. As far as 2020 is concerned, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, that released on January 10 this year, already crossed the Rs 250 crore and is still going strong. The action drama is being tipped to hit the Rs 275-crore-mark and maybe even hit the Rs 300-crore mark. 

However, netizens felt that irrespective of the release date, the success of RRR was guaranteed because they felt only the name of SS Rajamouli was enough. Many felt that producers, who are planning to release films in January should postpone their films already.
