  1. Even SS Rajamouli & Prabhas can reply that Bigil has only collected 10 crores in Diwali weekend in AP/TS when Baahubali 2 collected 328 crores in the state without a national holiday. It has annhiliated the so called Bigil in its home ground. No Telugu film has even collected 10 crores in Bollywood till date outside Baahubali franchise. It single handedly made Prabhas the only South male actor to become a superstar in Bollywood breaking the generations old curse which saw many superstars from South fail repeatedly. The market is so bad even till now that outside Sye Raa & KGF South Indian superstars never even bother releasing their films in Hindi version. Even Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was a colossal disaster couldn’t even collect 9 crores let alone 511 but it still holds the record for highest grossing Telugu film in Hindi outside the Indian version of Star Wars. Had Baahubali released in Holiday season like Diwali, Eid, Christmas or Navaratri it would have collected 540 in Bollywood and 2000 worldwide.

    Highest Grossing Bollywood Films

    1. Dangal = Christmas/New Year
    2. PK = Christmas/New Year
    3. Sanju = Non Holiday
    4. Tiger Zinda Hai = Christmas/New Year
    5. Bajrangi Bhaijaan = Eid
    6. War = Gandhi Jayanthi/Navratri
    7. Padmaavat = Republic Day
    8. Sultan = Eid
    9. Dhoom 3 = Christmas/New Year
    10. Secret Superstar = Diwali
