SS Rajamouli’s film has become the first Indian movie to collect Rs 1500 crore worldwide. Baahubali 2 achieved this rare feat in just 21 days. The film has collected Rs 1227 crore in India and Rs 275 crore in the overseas market. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted the figures, “#Baahubali2 in 3 Wks becomes the 1st Indian Movie to do ₹ 1,500 Cr India N : ₹ 953 Cr G : ₹ 1,227 Cr Overseas: ₹ 275 Cr T: ₹ 1,502 Crs.”

There is a reason Karan Johar, who distributed the Hindi-dubbed film, is celebrating the success of the film. It is because this is unprecedented. This is the film’s third weekend but there are multiple films which will be releasing – Arjun Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend in Hindi, Tovino Thomas’ Godha in Malayalam, and Jiiva’s Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thora in Tamil. Even though these films might not be close to comparison, Baahubali 2 might lose its repeat audience.

Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium will also release this Friday. Dangal is close behind Baahubali in terms of collection, especially after its release in China. While filmmakers plan on releasing Baahubali 2 in China, it is not completely certain that SS Rajamouli film could rule the China box office the same way Dangal did. While the audience in India has liked the film for its visual effects and grandeur, the audience in China might not be impressed.
