SS Rajamouli’s period epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has become a landmark film at the Box Office. The worldwide collection tolls to around Rs. 1000 crore in just 10 days which makes it to be the first Indian film to touch the magic figure of thousand worldwide, out of which roughly Rs 800 crore has come from India domestic theatricals, and the rest from overseas markets. Please note that Baahubali 2’s Hindi version alone has crossed Rs 300 crore and is racing towards Rs 400 crore — a new record for a Hindi film.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh shared these details on Twitter over the -“Baahubali 2 packs a solid Rs 25 crore on Saturday; creates new record: fastest to reach Rs 300 crore club (Day 10).” Adarsh added that these numbers indicated he net collections for the Hindi version, from the domestic market.
And the US market, dominated thus far by the Khan triumvirate, Baahubali 2 became the first Indian film to do a business of Rs 100 crore. It has beaten Dangal’s $12.4 million to rank as the number one (Indian) film in the US. Early on Sunday (7 May) afternoon, Great India Films, the US distributor for Rajamouli’s magnum opus tweeted: “Baahubali 2 just crossed $16 million with tracked locations.”
The numbers clearly indicate that Baahubali 2 which has crossed Rs 1000 crore worldwide, is way ahead of the competition. However, Bollywood has some hope as Dangal has crossed Rs 800 crore worldwide with its fantastic China opening ($ 11.3 million opening weekend), and became the second highest grosser of all time. Baahubali 2 is yet to open in the Chinese market, as Baahubali: The Beginning proved to be a bit of a damp squib there.
