Baahubali 2’s historic debut at the Indian box office saw a reflection in the key foreign markets as well. Director SS Rajamouli’s big budget film has taken the American markets by storm. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that Baahubali 2 has already collected more than Rs 50 crore in the US.
Not only here, Baahubali 2 is performing really well in New Zealand and Australia.
SS Rajamouli has thanked the fans for their support after the films release. “It’s only natural that a big project like ‘Baahubali’ faces hurdles during release. I must say that the enormous love and support that was given by ‘Baahubali’ fans made us cruise through the obstacles,” Rajamouli tweeted on Sunday.
“Thank you everyone who have been with us for the past five years encouraging us at every turn. You have given us such a big success that we can keep it in our hearts for the rest of our lives,” he added.
With an estimated earnings of Rs 121 crore from first day across four languages, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is said to have registered the biggest opening for an Indian film.
