Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer Baahubali 2 (Hindi) has been in the theaters for than one month now. The film has shattered and created many box office records, but it has slowed down its pace due to new releases. The magnum opus collected around 1.10 crores* on its 5th Wednesday and now stands with the grand total of 501.25 crores.
Internationally, Baahubali: The Conclusion‘s success rate is only matched by Aamir Khan’s Dangal. The Nitesh Tiwari-directed film was dormant at the box office for months before it released in China last month and set the cash registers ringing at maniacal speed. Dangal has crossed Rs. 1,000-crore mark in China. Baahubali: The Conclusion, which will release in china soon, is rolling in over Rs. 1,600 crore too.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is set in fictional Mahishmathi resurrected through VFX by Rajamouli and his team. Baahubali series follows the story of the mighty kingdom’s two princes – Amarendra Baahubali and his cousin Bhalladeva. After Bhalladeva successfully gets Baahubali assassinated all hell breaks loose. Two decades later Baahubali’s son, Mahendra, returns to avenge his father and reclaim the throne of Mahishmathi.
It is the highest grosser of all time, and also the 1st 500 crore club entrant. Apart from this, Baahubali 2 has also become the 1st film to gross over 300 crores in the Telugu speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The film has also turned out to be a hugely profitable venture for its makers. Considering its Hindi acquisition cost of 90 crores, Baahubali 2 has made a whopping profit of 411.25 crores, from total earnings of 501.25 crores at the domestic market (solely from its Hindi version). The film’s profit percentage stands at 456.94%.
