Baahubali: The Conclusion is ‘unstoppable,’ filmmaker Karan Johar had tweeted. It’s true indeed. S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 has completed a seven-day run at the theatres and the Hindi version of the film has recorded a beyond-impressive box office score of Rs. 245 crore, reports Box Office India. Well, the ticket sales for all versions of Baahubali 2 read Rs. 303 crores after the first weekend – a number that shattered the
record previously held by Salman Khan’s Sultan, which had made Rs. 180 crores in the opening weekend. Meanwhile,Baahubali 2 is on its way to topple the blockbuster lifetime collection figures of Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which currently stands at Rs. 387 crores. Just give Baahubali 2 a few more days. The Hindi version of the two part epic has been distributed by Karan’s Dharma Productions.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who closely follows the box office progress of Baahubali 2, pointed out that Dangal and Sultan‘s release over Holiday weekends is also a predominant factor in their box office scores. Now, Baahubali 2, releasing on April 28, has broken the myth of sorts. “Every forthcoming biggie will be compared to Baahubali 2 henceforth, irrespective of the genre,” Mr Adarsh said of Baahubali 2 setting benchmarks at every corner.
