As it goes up against fresh releases — Half Girlfriend and Hindi Medium — can it continue its rule at the ticket windows?

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t watched Baahubali 2 but said it’s a shining example of vision and risk. “I saw Baahubali’s part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It’s an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well. If you want to create that big cinema and that big dream to sell to a big number of people, you have to have guts to take that storytelling on and say it in the biggest, nicest, boldest way possible. Baahubali stands for that,” Shah Rukh told IANS.

“It’s not just the success of Baahubali, but the fact that there was someone making Baahubali part one. Mr S.S. Rajamouli is always inspirational… Whichever film he’ll make. And there are some other directors, producers also who do that,” Shah Rukh added.
