SS Rajamouli-Prabhas’s Baahubali 2 or Baahubali: The Conclusion is all set to hit the theatres soon and we can’t help but sit in a mad anticipation to get our million dollar question answered: Why Did Katappa Kill Baahubali? Well, in only a couple of days we would get our answer. The movie has collected over Rs 500 crore even before it’s release and it has been declared to a sure shot hit already by the trade Pundits.
Now, the latest buzz is that, not only will Baahubali 2 surpass Baahubali’s first-day collections but also mint over Rs 100 crore on its first day. And if it does that, it will be the first movie ever to do it. Pressure is mounting on the maker’s and we can feel it. Trade report of how advance booking plans of Baahubali are fast filling in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, NCR, Chennai, amongst other cities and hence it is touted that it will easily surpass Rs 50 crore on the date one.
Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam language shows are heavily booked in the southern parts of the country and are expected to garner around Rs 44 crore gross. Also, the makers have booked 9000 screens all over the world. According to the website, USA has about 1100 screens and the other 1400 screens are scattered in rest of the world. In totality, the movie is supposed to garner about Rs 22 crore.
All said and done, even in the worst case scenario, it would emerge as the biggest Box Office earner of 2017 so far till Salman Khan’s Tubelight arrives on Eid. Now that would be quite a feat considering the fact that the Prabhas and Rana starrer is actually a dubbed Telugu film, and hence it would no mean record at all.
