Baahubali 2: The Conclusion refuses to slow down with its stupendous run at the box office. After crossing the unheard of and unthinkable Rs.1000 crore mark at the worldwide box office just a few days ago, the film has now grossed over Rs.1200 crore at the worldwide box office, which is another first for an Indian film. Well, the bar just gets set higher with every passing day.
Film trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted about where the film stands with its gross worldwide box office collection on Day 13. He wrote on twitter, “As of yesterday, #Baahubali2TheConclusion has crossed Rs.1200 Crs at the WW BO.. No signs of slowing down.. Will cross US $200M WW today!”

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?”. The sequel hit theatres on April 28th in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.
With the kind of dream run Baahubali 2 is having at the box office, the new releases this week which are the Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmaan Khurana starrer ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ and Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Sarkar 3’ will really have to fight it out hard at the box office to attract audiences, who seem to still have their eyes on Baahubali 2.
It remains to be seen if the big releases lined up for this year manage to reach where Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion reached. It’s going to be a tough task but at least there is this one film up there, that every film from now onwards will aspire to match standards with.
