In a latest report doing the rounds, Baahubali 2 is said to be the first Indian film to have registered over 10 crore in footfalls and still counting in the country. These numbers have startled the trade, critics and audiences alike.
Baahubali 2 has many first-time records. It’s the first Indian film to breach into the Rs 1500 crore club, crushing all records across the length and breadth of the globe. In Tamil Nadu, the film has officially joined the Rs 150 crore club, becoming the first film to achieve the rare feat, even surpassing superstar Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, which registered the record seven years ago. According to trusted trade pundits, it took second part in the Baahubali franchise just 16 days to enter the Rs 100 crore club in Tamil Nadu. In Kerala, the film minted around Rs 70 crore in its theatrical run. Having broken the records of Bollywood biggies such as Sultan and Dangal to become the biggest Indian grosser, there’s no record left to be broken by the film and it’s a moment of pride for every south Indian.
