Oopiri, the official remake of the French film The Intouchables, which released last Friday, both in Tamil and Telugu, has been declared a blockbuster.

Oopiri has reached the one million dollar mark in USA. This is Nagarjuna's second movie to enter the $1 million club after 'Manam'.

The advance booking was not very encouraging and morning shows did not have many takers. But the film pulled in numbers subsequently due to good word-of-mouth publicity.

The latest update is that Bollywood producer Karan Johar has purchased the remake rights of Oopiri.

Nagarjuna who plays a quadriplegic millionaire in the movie, on Wednesday evening met the real life paraplegics and had a conversation with them.

Speaking at the event, Nagarjuna said, "I know how much of a problem it is for those who are wheel-chair bound.  It's because my mother suffered from arthritis for eight years.  I felt unhappy watching her in that condition.  By working for this film, I realized that medicine is for the body, not for the mind.  Those who are wheel-chair bound are not disabled persons, but differently-abled persons," he said.
