Baahubali 2 released a couple of days ago and has taken the box office by a storm. The initial day saw the box office collect INR 100 crores in India. The pre-release business in the US for Baahubali 2 stood at a whopping figure of $3 million. Predictions were coming from all directions that the magnum opus of SS Rajamouli will be the first Indian film to make more than INR 1000 crores.
And looking at the pace at which numbers are tumbling at the box office, Baahubali 2 indeed seems to be on the way to cross the humongous figure of INR 1000 crores. Baahubali 2 released on April 28, 2017, worldwide. It was released in IMAX screens in the US and became the first Indian film ever to be released in such screens.
Besides disfiguring the box office records in India, Baahubali 2 storm was spread across the US as well. Baahubali 2 became the first movie to earn the highest collection on release day. It beat Emma Watson and Tom Hanks starrer The Circle. This is the first time in the history of box office collections in Hollywood that a non-Hollywood movie is on the top.
The numbers in India were at sky-high on day one with just the Indian box office collections ending the day at INR 121 crore.
This was the just the beginning of the tumbling of records for Baahubali 2 since the bookings of the movie are packed for the next two weeks across the nation.
