The film has already earned Rs 1450 crore and is heading towards Rs 1500-crore mark.

Can any of the new releases stop Baahubali 2’s success march? It seems unlikely as news coming from across India reveals that the SS Rajamouli film will retain a large number of screens even in the fourth week despite new films coming out. And why not when Baahubali 2 is breaking new records in terms of box office collection despite being released 19 days ago. According to the latest numbers shared by trade tracker Ramesh Bala, the film has already grossed Rs 1450 crore worldwide at the box office and is likely to create Rs 1500-crore club this week. He wrote on Twitter, “Baahubali2 19 Days WW Box office: India: Nett : ₹ 925 Crs Gross : ₹ 1,189 Crs. Overseas: Gross: ₹ 261 Crs Total: ₹ 1,450 Crs.”

After breaking a series of box office records, Baahubali 2 is on its way to start Rs 1500-crore club, reaching an unprecedented milestone. SS Rajamouli’s fantasy epic is on a roll and it’s in no mood to slow down anytime soon.

The film has grossed around Rs 121 crore in North America. Taran shared the figures on Twitter, “#Baahubali2 eyes $ 20 mn in NORTH AMERICA [till 14 May 2017]: USA: $ 18,256,999 Canada: $ 742,534 Total: $ 18,999,533 [₹ 121.69 cr].”

Meanwhile, other new releases including Meri Pyaari Bindu and Sarkar 3 have received a lukewarm response at box office. Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer collected a measly Rs 85 lakh on Monday. Taran shared the figures, ” #MeriPyaariBindu Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 2.25 cr, Sun 2.50 cr, Mon 85 lakhs. Total: 7.35 cr. India biz.” Amitabh Bachchan film Sarkar 3 has collected Rs 6.75 crore from first weekend. Taran wrote on Twitter, “Sarkar3 Fri ₹ 2.10 cr, Sat 2.25 cr, Sun 2.40 cr. Total: ₹ 6.75 cr.

Meanwhile, media reports have suggested that SS Rajamouli is considering making the third part of this hugely successful franchise, Baahubali 3. A Bollywood Hungama report said that recently l SS Rajamouli and producer Shobu Yarlagadda held a meeting and discussed the same. “Rajamouli and his producer Shobu Yarlagadda are now, for the first time discussing a third feature film. Rajamouli’s father K Vijeyendra Prasad has been asked to explore the plot possibilities. Other writers may also be brought on board to put forward ideas. A think tank is being created on the lines of the slew of screenwriters who work on Hollywood franchises like Mission Impossible and King Arthur. But yes, Baahubali 3 is now officially under consideration,” a source was quoted in the report.
