Baahubali 2: The Conclusion continues to engrave its name in golden letters at the Indian box office by becoming the highest grossing Hindi film of all time. The film’s hindi version is all set to be the inaugural member of the prestigious 400 crore club in Bollywood, beating Aamir Khan’s Dangal along the way, that has manged a lifetime collection of Rs. 387.38 crore at the box office. This is no mean feat, particularly when it comes from a film that has been dubbed in Hindi.

Critic and Hindi film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about Baahubali 2’s business last week at the box office. The film’s hindi version has managed to rake in Rs. 390.25 crore net. He tweeted, “#Baahubali2 to surpass *lifetime biz* of #Dangal [Rs.387.38 cr].. Emerges HIGHEST GROSSER.. first film to touch 400 cr… HINDI. Net.”

He described the film as a ‘ONE HORSE RACE’, refusing to stop and single handedly leaving every other Indian film behind at the box office, both in India as well as the overseas market.

Baahubali 2 which is a revenge drama, has been made on a budget of approximately Rs. 250 crore with a cast comprising of Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Rana Daggubati and Sathyaraj among others. The film boasts of never- seen-before visual effects in Indian cinema. In fact, the budget of the sequel was increased seeing the tremendous success and fan following of the first Baahubali film released in 2015, which ended on a cliff hanger and left audiences gasping with the question “Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali?”.

Even though Aamir Khan’s Dangal lost its top position to Baahubali 2, the wrestling biopic still has reasons to celebrate. The film’s epic run in China recently has put its Worldwide gross box office figure at 931 crores. The film is all set to become the second film to have grossed over 1000 crores at the worldwide box office after Baahubali 2.

Happy, prosperous times in bollywood!
