Hyderabad, India – Prasanth Varma and Teja Sajja’s film, “Hanuman,” has achieved remarkable success at the North American box office, surpassing even the highest-grossing stars in Tollywood. The film is on the brink of crossing the $5 million mark, a milestone that few could have imagined without the involvement of renowned director Rajamouli.
