Considering the impact that SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion has left on the Box office, it is clear that there is indeed no film which has had such a massive release and acceptance by the viewers. The film, which has undoubtedly set new benchmarks in the history of Indian Cinema by breaking the record of highest Day 1 collection previously held by Sultan and Dangal, continues its winning streak.
The film featuring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan and Tamannaah Bhatia was released on April 28 in four languages – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.
According to popular trade analyst Ramesh Bala, the film continued to rake in the moolah on day 2 as well. Going by the tweet he had posted, “#Baahubali2 / #BaahubaliTheConclusion 2 Days W BO: #India Gross: ₹ 285 Crs #USA – ₹ 52.5 Crs RoW – ₹ 45 Crs Total – ₹ 382.5 Crs”, the film’s strong impact couldn’t be missed.
Besides being strong in India, Baahubali 2 was also massive in the US wherein it became the first film to make it the top 3 on the US weekend Box Office following its release in 425 theatres.
No Indian film has ever opened this big on the US box office chart before. It generated the biggest opening weekend of all-time for an Indian film in North America with an estimated $10.1M. Popular films The Fate of the Furious and How to be a Latin Lover have bagged the number 1 and 2 spots respectively.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also shared his views in a series of tweets he has been posting.
