Baahubali (Bahubali), SS Rajamouli’s epic film, remained undeterred at the ticket counters in India and abroad despite the stiff competition posed by Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dhanush’s Maari. Though the collection dropped in the second week, the steady collection is making sure that the movie can post a gargantuan total as the lifetime collection.
The Hindi version of the movie has garnered 67.15 crores in just 12 days and probably it will hit 85-90 crores once the juggernaut stops. The collection from the Hindi version is not showing any kind of drop even in the weekdays and due to that it’s heading towards the mammoth total. As per the box office reports, the worldwide collection of the movie has already crossed 375 crores in 12 days and at the end of third weekend, it should cross 400 crores as the Telugu version is breaking records every day. In terms of distributor’s share, the film has already become the 3rd biggest film after PK and Dhoom 3 in the history of Indian cinema and it might replace Dhoom 3 from the second position by the end of third week or in the fourth weekend. As PK was released in more markets, it will enjoy the numero uno position. The content, cinematography, acting, and direction are just fantabulous in Bahubali, so if it’s released in more markets like Aamir’s PK, it can easily replace PK from number one position. Let’s wait and watch if the makers of the movie decide to release it in some more markets.
