Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has managed to do the unthinkable and has thus become a true game changer. The film that released in cinema screens worldwide on 28th April has grossed up a box office collection of over 1000 crores worldwide, in a matter of less than 10 days. The kind of money the film has raked in, in such a short period of time, is something that warrants an inclusion in Indian cinema trade history books.
Karan Johar, whose production company Dharma Productions has distributed the Hindi version of Baahubali 2, tweeted about its feat at the box office and said “The biggest milestone has been reached by the biggest blockbuster of Indian cinema!!!! #1000croreBaaubali @ssrajamouli “

The fan- frenzy and hysteria around the film refuses to die down with cinema halls being sold out over the film’s second weekend too. Baahubali 2’s leading man Prabhas who essayed the role of Baahubali as well as his son Shiva in the film, took to his Facebook page to thank his fans. He said “ To All My Fans, a big hug to each one of you for all the love that you’ll have showered on me. I have tried my best to go through a lot of the efforts that you all have put to express your affection for me from different parts of India and even overseas. I am truly overwhelmed with everything. The journey of Baahubali has been a long one but among the few things that I will take away from this, is all of you. Lots of love back to you all. A big thank you to SS Rajamouli sir for believing in me to carry his huge vision to the masses, giving me a once-in-a-lifetime character of Baahubali and making the entire journey so special.”
With the film’s humongous success, the 1000 crore club is officially here and let’s see which are the other films that will make it to this prestigious club. But before that happens, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s show at the box office is far from over yet and we cannot wait to see which is the next milestone that this film crosses.
