Box Office: ‘Baahubali 2’ Becomes Highest-Grossing Indian Film of All Time

The sequel to the 2015 epic has collected $131 million worldwide, beating previous record-holder 2014’s ‘PK’.

Following its record opening weekend when it released worldwide on April 28, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has become the highest-grossing Indian film of all time.

Because India does not officially report box office numbers, local reports have tracked the latest figures. The film reportedly has crossed $131 million (over 8 billion rupees) worldwide, easily beating the estimated $123 million global haul collected by previous record-holder, 2014’s PKwhich starred top actor Aamir Khan.

With the film collecting $13.1 million in the U.S., Baahubali 2 also beat previous record-holder Dangal‘s $12.4 million total haul in the territory. The real-life wrestling drama also starred Aamir Khan. In India, the film has collected over $106 million, becoming the highest-grossing film in the country, beating previous record-holder Dangal which collected $83 million.

‘Baahubali 2’: Is this box office smash the future of Indian cinema?

It’s being called Indian cinema’s crowning glory.

“Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” has taken $65 million in its first five days at the box office, according to independent sales monitors.
That makes it the highest-netting movie in India ever, and the film has also taken in an additional $19 million overseas and placed third in the US weekend box office.
“The first day record, the weekend record, the first extended weekend record, it has broken all possible records and it will continue to break them,” said Komal Nahta, an expert on the Indian movie industry.
But while it might seem to have all the markers, “Baahubali 2” is not a Bollywood movie.
The movie is a production of the Southern India-based film industry centered on the Telugu language known as “Tollywood.” It’s being distributed in multiple other languages — Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and English.

‘Baahubali 2’ Becomes All-Time No. 1 Indian Film At Worldwide Box Office

That did not take long at all. S.S. Rajamouli’s box office shattering Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has become the highest-grossing Indian film in history, worldwide. Crossing the 800 crore ($120.3M) mark on Thursday — a first for an Indian pic — the movie has varying total estimates, according to local box office trackers. However, they agree it is well past 800 which leaves Aamir Khan’s previous record-holder, PK, in the dust at 792 crores.

Estimates currently range from 860 crores ($129.3M) to 887 crore ($133.3M). That sets it up nicely to cross an unprecedented milestone of 1,000 crores ($150.3M) in the coming days.
