S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali has become the first South Indian film to enter the Rs.300 crore club in just nine days, confirms a trade analyst.
It has surpassed the previous record held by superstar Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, which had collected approximately Rs.290 crore at the box office.
“As of Saturday, the film has grossed Rs.303 crore worldwide,” trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
“The Hindi version of the film has netted around 60 crore, setting a new record for a dubbed film. Despite the onslaught of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘, the numbers of ‘Baahubali‘ have not been affected,” he said.
The second part in the Rs.250 crore franchise is slated for release next year.
