Bahubali 2- the Conclusion has broken the record of Aamir Khan’s Dangal leading to more than one million bookings in just a single day over an online ticket booking site, BookMyShow. The Hindi version itself has collected around Rs 395.50 crore.
“Bollywood Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Baahubali2 to surpass *lifetime biz* of #Dangal (Rs 387.38 cr)… However, that doesn’t seem possible as proved in the case of many big-budget films that released post Baahubali: The Beginning. The film has already emerged as the highest grossing Indian film in overseas and set a huge benchmark for upcoming biggies. Gross Rs 100.55 crore (approximately) in 16 days. On the other hand, the Prabhas-starrer has also become the first movie to rake in a collection of over Rs 1000 crore worldwide that too in its first week of release. But since Baahubali 2 has now emerged as the greatest hit in the history of Indian cinema, KRK seems he has no option but to take a U-Turn.
It is the second film after Endhiran to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in TN.
Baahubali 2 has also become the highest Indian grossing film in the United States by shattering the record of Aamir Khan’s Dangal.
Among actresses, Kangana Ranaut (Rs 10-12 crore) and Deepika Padukone (Rs 8-10 crore) are leading the charge.
The Prabhas and Rana Daggubati-starrer collected approximately Rs 1,145 crore gross at the Indian market and Rs 227.20 crore at the global markets by the end of its third weekend. The film is expected to have a lifetime run of at least Rs 1600 crore before it runs out of theatres.
