Filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has upped the bar for box office earnings for Indian films by amassing Rs 400 crore plus worldwide in its opening weekend since its release on April 28, according to trade experts.
The second part in the Baahubali franchise — a fantasy drama about a fictional kingdom — has rewritten box office records, and how.
After zooming past the Rs 100 crore mark on its first day of hitting screens in India, the much-awaited movie which piqued the interest of viewers with the question ‘Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?’, has kept the audience coming in to find out the answer.
However, the main lead of the film Prabhas, has been apparently spending sleepless nights. Wonder, why?
Well, the handsome actor from the south is apparently too busy receiving congratulatory calls from friends and well-wishers. A leading daily reported a source as saying, “Over the weekend, he was surrounded with his friends and family. After giving four years to the film, he has now got the chance to be with his folks completely so he is making the most of the time. He also wants to catch a show and witness the love that the film is receiving along with the audience. Even Prabhas’s didn’t know the reason as to why did Kattapa kill Baahubali and watched the film to find out why.”
Now, isn’t that something?
