Baahubali: The Conclusion released 50 days ago and is currently being screening in over 1,000 screens across India, which is a new all-time record
Just when you thought Baahubali: The Conclusion is done creating records, the S S Rajamouli-directed blockbuster started trending on Twitter for successfully completing 50 days in theatres. "#50DaysForLegendaryBaahubali2' trended on Friday morning. The film's official Twitter handle reported that Baahubali 2 is currently being screened in 1,050 centres across India and trade analyst Ramesh Bala added that this is a 'new all-time record.' The film is yet to release in China (which welcomed Aamir Khan's Dangal last month with enthusiasm) but has reportedly made nearly Rs 2000 crore globally. Baahubali 2 (in Hindi, which is distributed by Karan Johar) holds the record for being the only film to make over Rs 500 crore ousting Aamir's Dangal (at Rs 387 crore). Baahubali: The Conclusion released in several languages on April 28 and time and again, the film reminds movie-goers of its greatness.
Baahubali 2 is also the first Indian film to cross the 1,000-crore mark worldwide and soon Aamir Khan's Dangal (following its mammoth success in China) crossed the benchmark too.
S S Rajamouli's Baahubali series is the story of rivalry between the two mighty princes of a fictional VFX-created Mahishmathi kingdom. Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati) conspires to kill his cousin and Mahishmathi's favouite Aamrendra Baahubali (played by Prabhas). 25 years later, Mahendra Baahubali (also Prabhas) returns to avenge his father's death and reclaim the throne of Mahishmathi.
The Baahubali series also stars Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Anushka Shetty as Devasena, Tamannaah Bhatia as Avantika and Sathya Raj as Kattappa.
