Bahubali 2 Box Office Collection Day 5: SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus becomes the HIGHEST grosser ever in India

SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus featuring south stars Prabhas, Rana Dagubati, Tamannaah and Anushka Shetty is making waves at the box office. The superhit movie has now become one of the highest grossers of all time ever, in India.

The gross figures of the earnings are:

(Apparently, trade pundits are keeping an eye mainly on gross figures as, when a film is playing in various languages it is the gross figures that are used, due to different rates of Entertainment Tax in different states, and regional films getting reduced rates from state governments.)

Baahubali: The ConclusionRs 565 cr + counting

Baahubali : The Beginning: Rs 519 cr

DangalRs 512 cr

PK: Rs 448 Cr

Bajrangi Bhaijaan: Rs 422 Cr

Sultan: Rs 418 Cr

Dhoom 3: Rs 363 Cr

Kick: Rs 283 Cr

Chennai Express: Rs 278 Cr

3 Idiots: Rs 273 Cr

Forbes magazine has announced that Baahubali 2‘s $80 million debut is bigger news than Furious’s $532 Million. The magazine explains why. They quote, “Baahubali didn’t merely surpass the previous record for an Indian movie, it absolutely demolished it. Before last Friday, the high water mark among Indian movie opening weekends was the INR 180 crore ($28 million) record set by Sultan in 2016. Baahubali 2 nearly tripled that record. For Fate of the Furious to match the scale of that feat, it would have had to gross $1.5 billion in its debut weekend. When one considers the market constraints that Indian movies face, Baahubali’s success becomes all the more impressive.”

Now, isn’t that something?
