As expected, Baahubali 2 is breaking box office records. Rajamouli’s epic film crossed the INR 450 crores mark just in three days. Aamir Khan’s film ‘PK’ earned INR 792 crores from its lifetime theater run. PK is, till date, the highest-grossing Indian film. But Baahubali 2 will earn more than ‘PK’ in one week. It has earned INR 121 crores in one day from Indian theaters. So far, the revenue is INR 285 crores from Indian theaters only.
According to reports, Baahubali 2 is the most expensive Indian film so far. But all that spending was for something great. Critics appreciated the second chapter of Baahubali more than the first one.

Karan Johar to Kangana Ranaut, everyone in the B-Town is suffering from Baahubali 2 fever. The premiere of the film was canceled because of Vinod Khanna’s sudden demise. But the cancellation did not hamper Baahubali 2’s box office collection. The film is doing outstanding business in North Indian theaters. First Monday is an important day for any new film. According to trade analysts, Baahubali 2 will surely survive the first Monday box office test. Many fans are yet to watch the film.
IPL did not come as a roadblock for Baahubali 2’s box office collection. Prabhas, Rana, Anushka Shetty and Tamanna Bhatia were busy in promoting their film before the release, but their promotional activities were way lesser than that of a Bollywood film. There was neither a grand premiere nor any other such event for Baahubali 2. But Rajamouli’s film is still doing better business than the Khans-starrer films. After all, content is the king. Baahubali ended on a cliff-hanger. Fans wanted to find out why Kattappa killed Baahubali.
The only bad news for Baahubali 2 is that some fans are leaking film’s climax on social media platforms. Hopefully, these spoilers will not cause significant harm to Baahubali 2’s box office collection.
