Baahubali 2:The conclusion rewrites history with its great opening and massive weekend collections. The multi-lingual film that stars Prabhas and Rana Daggubati has accumulated a whopping Rs 506 crore worldwide over the opening weekend. While the collections in India are Rs 385 crore over the weekend, it also minted Rs 121 crore overseas. The business in US and Canada, Gulf and Australia has reportedly smashed all records. Not just that, if we include the collections of the previews, then the worldwide collection goes up to Rs 520 crore.
Karan Johar who is promoting the movie Bahubali 2, also tweeted about it saying the weekend as the historic weekend. Hindi movie critic and biz analyst Taran Adarsh also tweeted about it as saying that the wave is unstoppable.
Based on rumours,this is how Bahubali 2 has performed in South Indian centres:
In Andhra and Telengana — the ‘citadel’ of its collections where the Telugu version is playing across more than 1000 screens in multiple shows — Bahubali 2 has grossed Rs 58 crores, with a nett collection that Andhra Box Office has reported at Rs 43 crore.
In Tamil Nadu, Bahubali 2 has earned Rs 10.25 crore gross from 650-odd screens. It is the second highest box office collection of 2017 here, after Vijay’s Bairavaa, which opened on Pongal.
In Karnataka, the Bengaluru multiplexes had a field day with ticket charges hovering between Rs 500 and 1200. The Karnataka government order regarding the cap on tickets (with Rs 200 being the highest chargeable rate per ticket at multiplexes) clearly hadn’t reached the exhibitors. As per trade sources, the film has grossed Rs 15.5 crores on day one of its release.
In Kerala, Bahubali 2 has created box-office history. The film has grossed a new record — Rs 5.45 crore on day one (Friday, 28 April) of its release. It has become the highest collecting film in any language in the state on its first day in theatres here. That’s phenomenal, as no Malayalam film has crossed more than Rs 2.75 crore in a single day, not even those with superstars Mohanlal or Mammootty. Prem Menon of Global United Media, who is distributing the film in Kerala, said, “The success of Bahubali 2 in Kerala is unprecedented, and it is doing well across the state. The family audiences love it and there were also repeated audiences.”
