Baahubali 2 is running successfully in over 1,000 theatres after 50 days
The S S Rajamouli-directed film has reportedly made over Rs 2,000 crore
Baahubali 2 is the first Indian film to cross 1,000-crore mark globally
Just when you thought Baahubali: The Conclusion
is done creating records, the S S Rajamouli-directed blockbuster started trending on Twitter for successfully completing 50 days in theatres. "#50DaysForLegendaryBaahubali2' trended on Friday morning. The film's official Twitter handle reported that Baahubali 2
is currently being screened in 1,050 centres across India and trade analyst Ramesh Bala added that this is a 'new all-time record.' The film is yet to release in China (which welcomed Aamir Khan's Dangal
last month with enthusiasm) but has reportedly made nearly Rs 2000 crore globally. Baahubali 2
(in Hindi, which is distributed by Karan Johar) holds the record for being the only film to make over Rs 500 crore
ousting Aamir's Dangal
(at Rs 387 crore). Baahubali: The Conclusion
released in several languages on April 28 and time and again, the film reminds movie-goers of its greatness.
Here's the breakup of the screens division for Baahubali 2
is also the first Indian film to cross the 1,000-crore mark worldwide and soon Aamir Khan's Dangal
(following its mammoth success in China) crossed the benchmark too.
S S Rajamouli's Baahubali
series is the story of rivalry between the two mighty princes
of a fictional VFX-created Mahishmathi kingdom. Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati) conspires to kill his cousin and Mahishmathi's favouite Aamrendra Baahubali (played by Prabhas). 25 years later, Mahendra Baahubali (also Prabhas) returns to avenge his father's death and reclaim the throne of Mahishmathi.
series also stars Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Anushka Shetty as Devasena, Tamannaah Bhatia as Avantika and Sathya Raj as Kattappa.
