Baahubali 2 is also set to beat the lifetime collection of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which made $12.4 million (Rs 82+ crore) at the US box office.

Not just North America, the film is also keeping the cash registers ringing at the box office in Australia and New Zealand, among other international markets. In a rare feat, the film is also playing in theatres in Russia.

In a series of tweets, trade pundit Taran Adarsh provided box office breakup of Baahubali 2 in Australia and New Zealand. “The *Hindi version* of #Baahubali2 is all set to cross *opening weekend* biz of #Dangal [A$ 735,755] in Australia… SENSATIONAL…#Baahubali2 – AUSTRALIA – Hindi version: Fri A$ 211,996, Sat A$ 325,678. Total: A$ 537,674 [₹ 2.59 cr]. TERRIFIC! (sic),” he wrote on his Twitter page.

“In New Zealand, #Baahubali2 *Hindi version* has overtaken *opening weekend* biz of #Dangal [NZ$ 188,732] on Sat itself… AMAZING…#Baahubali2 – NEW ZEALAND – Hindi version: Fri NZ$ 84,782, Sat NZ$ 115,398. Total: NZ$ 200,180 [₹ 88.29 lakhs]. WOW! (sic),” he added.

Baahubali 2 has already created a box office history by crossing Rs 100 crore mark at the domestic box office on the first day itself. The collection figures of the film from UAE, Malaysia and other locations are yet to be revealed.

Baahubali 2 made on a whopping budget of Rs 250 crore has earned nearly Rs 500 crore in its pre-release business. Baahubali: The Beginning, which had a humble worldwide opening compared to Baahubali 2, earned Rs 650 crore from its global ticket sales. And its record was beaten by Dangal, which grossed Rs 700 crore. And it won’t be a surprise if Baahubali 2 ends up earning Rs 1000 crore at the worldwide box office.

On its third day, Baahubali 2 is going strong at the box office too exceeding the expectations the film had created after the first part ended on a massive cliffhanger. The film stars Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan and Nassar, among others.
