SS Rajamouli's epic film Baahubali, which has wowed one and all, has entered the Rs 200 crore club, collecting Rs 215 crore worldwide in five days.

"This is said to be fastest an Indian film has entered the Rs 200 crore club. It has grossed a whopping Rs 215 crore till Tuesday at the ticket window worldwide. There hasn't been a major dip in the collections even on week days," said trade analyst Trinath.

Said to be made on a budget of Rs 250 crore, the film features Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhatia in the lead roles. It's about the war between two brothers for an ancient kingdom.

The film has emerged as the biggest hit overseas, surpassing even Bollywood blockbuster such as Happy New Year and PK in its opening weekend.
