Salman Khan Explains Success of Prabhas' Baahubali 2 And It's Bang On

There is no denying the fact that actor Salman Khan has several Box Office records to his credit, courtesy his charismatic appeal. The star has redefined BO collections with the sudden emergence of Rs 100-200-500 crore marks. But a Telugu star Prabhas set the cash registers ringing this year with the success of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. For the uninitiated, the film has raked in over Rs 1000 crore in India.

While many stars have been impressed with the success of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Salman has made an effort to understand the real reason why the film made so much money.

In his recent interview to DNA After Hrs, Salman said, “I will tell you why numbers have become such a big thing. The most amazing thing about Baahubali’s success is that the Hindi audiences are so accepting. They have made a Telugu film so large, even though they do not know south heroes apart from three or four of them. South audiences know us there; yet, our films do not do that volume of business because their fans have an extraordinary sense of loyalty to their actors. Fan following is very strong — if there is a Kamal Haasan fan, then he will be a Kamal fan forever; Rajinikanth fan will be a Rajinikanth fan for life. We have piracy here; one should try indulging in piracy there, fan clubs wouldn’t allow it. Whether a politician or the underworld does it, they don’t give a damn; they will fight it.”
