Baahubali 2 is reinventing the meaning of success as the film is racing towards breaking all records across the nation and declaring itself a global phenomenon. Its BO numbers are leaving Indian trade analysts, filmmakers and contemporaries stunned with the kind of response it is getting being a regional film. In fact, it would be an insult to call it a regional cinema anymore as it is being loved by people, who are watching the dubbed versions in English, Hindi and Malayalam. And going by the way the film is minting money and winning hearts, it wouldn’t be long when it would cross the lifetime record of Aamir Khan’s PK which stands at Rs 769 crores.
And provided the film is all set to have more shows in Russia on popular demand, the Prabhas-Rana Daggubati starrer is unstoppable.
The larger than life treatment of the film with the help of never seen before and A-class VFX, is inspiring people. the film has put India on the global map in an unforgettable way. In fact, lead actor Prabhas has got his own wax statue, which in itself is testimony to the storm the film has created. As far as the collections are concerned, Baahubali 2 has already left Sultan, Dangal and Raees way behind and has become the fastest Indian film to collect over Rs 600 crore.
