“Bahubali”, which was originally made in Telugu, has released in four languages- Telugu, Tamil, Malyalam and Hindi. The film has gathered huge acclaim for the outstanding performances by the artists as well as the amazing special effects which have been used in it. It also happens to be the costliest film made in India, with a staggering budget of Rs 250 crore.
”Bahubali” has been released in nearly 4200 screens worldwide and has broken many records at the box office. It has made a global box office collection of a phenomenal Rs 60 crore on its opening day, with Rs 50 crore being the net collection in the country. The major chunk of Rs 44 crore came from the South Indian states while Rs 6 crore came from the rest of the country. The second day collection of “Bahubali” was recorded at Rs 53 crore followed by a Super Sunday, when it reached Rs 57 crore. Despite the fact that Monday is the first working day of the week, “Bahubali” was still able to grab an incredible collection of Rs 47 crore on Monday. The movie is expected to surpass the figure of Rs 250 crore in its worldwide collection within its first five days only.
The collections of “Bahubali” are likely to come down in the rest of the country after the release of much anticipated Salman Khan starrer “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” on the occasion of Eid. However, it is expected to maintain its successful run in South India.
