Not just national but SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, is on a spree to break box office records internationally as well.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion emerged as number three on the US box office behind Vin Diesel’s Fate of the Furious and a Hispanic comedy How to be a Latin Lover.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion beat Tom Hanks’ high-tech thriller The Circle at the North American box office.
The SS Rajamouli-directorial opened with US $10.1 million (Rs 64,874,500), from a mere 450 theatres.
A run in 45 IMAX venues paid off, generating US $1.8 million (Rs 11,641,000), an IMAX record for a foreign-language picture.
The magnum opus has already become the first Indian film in history to cross Rs 100 crore net on the very first day of its release.
The movie stars Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj in pivotal roles.
