What more is there to glorify and to say about the phenomenal and unimaginable run of S .S Rajamouli’s magnum opus, BAAHUBALI 2 : THE CONCLUSION, the follow up to another lavishly mounted extravaganza, BAAHUBALI : THE BEGINNING. So let us list some of the records.
With BAAHUBALI 2 (Hindi) netting 245 crore (to be validated) during the opening week, it surpassed the record of SULTAN (210 crore) during the same period.
If we talk about the global picture, BAAHUBALI 2 : THE CONCLUSION (all versions), has grossed nearly 860 crore globally, thus beating the highest worldwide (gross) record of PK, which stands at around 750 crore. And that in just a week and still counting!
As far as the overseas is concerned, BAAHUBALI 2 : THE CONCLUSION (all versions) is now the biggest grosser with $28m (exact figures awaited) during the first week.
And just as an example BB2 has grossed $12,550,000 (approx) till Wednesday in the US, beating the final total of DANGAL, $12,300,000.
Having said that, as we file this column, there is breaking news about an interesting DANGAL taking place in (believe it or not!), China! But for that and more, keep tuned to your favourite portal.
