Prabhas and director S.S Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 has come as the winner movie of 2017. It has already completed three weeks of release but still collecting nice figures. At worldwide box office the movie already crossed the mark of 1550 crores and become the first non-Hindi movie to enter in this club. Few days ago, it has become the first Hindi dubbed movie to cross the mark of 460 crores in India.
This epic action drama witnessed phenomenal response at box office through out and raked the business of 534 crores on domestic box office, including 247 crores from Hindi and 287 crores from Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam screens. In its second week too, the movie remained very strong and did the business of 266 crores, that was included 143.25 crores of Hindi and 122.75 crores of rest three versions.
Baahubali: The Conclusion faced some threat from Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal due to the latter’s successful run at China box office, which according to many, might tak away its throne of being India’s highest grosser ever. But the latest news of Baahubali 2’s impending release in China in July, the race is set to get more intense. SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 is inching towards Rs 1600-crore mark. Its Hindi version had by Sunday, collected Rs 478.30 crore nett.
On the other hand, Dangal which released in China recently, had grossed Rs 1471 crore till Sunday. The competition is clearly between Baahubali 2 and Dangal, as every new release is only falling flat at the box office. While Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu sank without a trace last weekend, this week’s new filmsHalf Girlfriend and Hindi Medium managed to do a tad better.
