As predicted by several trade pundits after humongous opening, Prabhas starrer Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion (Hindi) became the biggest grosser of Bollywood by surpassing Aamir’s Dangal (375 crores) by a huge margin. It seems that every Indian is willing to know why did Katappa kill Bahubali.
As per the box office reports, Bahubali 2 (Hindi) amassed approx. 10 crores on its third Friday to take the total box office collection (Hindi) to approx. 400.25 crores. Though it lost 30-40% screens to new Bollywood and Hollywood releases, it remained the first choice for moviegoers. Because of that, the earning of BB2 (Hindi) is far more than the combined earnings of new releases.

Another 25-30 crores is possible in next two days and that will be a new 3rd weekend record for any Indian movie. Even though BB2 will face competition from the upcoming new releases starting from the next week, one cannot deny the fact that it got enormous potential to become the first Bollywood movie to cross 500 crores. After 15 days, all India collection of the movie is approx. 825 crores nett and one should not be surprised if it crosses 1000 crores nett figure in India itself at the end of its run in theaters.
