SS Rajamouli’s epic movie Baahubali: The Conclusion has shattered all the records in Indian cinema history with a worldwide collection of Rs 1500 crore. This is the highest collection for any Indian film.
The film broke records during its opening week, with Rs a 121 crore collection netting Rs 320-325 crore over the first three days of release.
At Rs 320-325 crore, Baahubali 2 is now the highest opening Indian film, beating Bollywood blockbusters and its 2015 predecessor Baahubali: The Beginning by a huge margin.
The highest opening weekend collection by a Bollywood film so far is by Sultan (2016) at Rs 180 crore.
However, the movie was released mid-week and hence enjoyed a five-day opening weekend. If one were to consider the Friday-Sunday opening weekend period, Baahublali 2 has left Sultan far behind as estimates peg the opening weekend collection for the Hindi dubbed version only at Rs 128 crore (net after tax).
Baahubali 2 has earned Rs 1,502 crore gross across the world in which India’s contribution is Rs 1,227 crore according to trade analyst Ramesh Bala.
Baahubali stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj in pivotal roles.
