SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali is unarguably one of the most loved Indian film worldwide. Having had a glorious run all over in cinemas, the film impressed audiences domestically as well as globally.

On Wednesday, filmmaker Rajamouli revealed that the love the film received in Jap has been unprecedented. He took to Instagram and wrote: “It’s been a week since we came back home from Japan. Thanks to Baahubali, we had a chance to visit many countries. But Japan became our most favourite. I can’t ever forget the reception they gave us, and the love they showered on us and our film. Incredible. They sent me home with lots of gift packs. We just started unboxing one by one and it brought a wide smile on my face again.”

He went on to add that every gift they received is “unique” and “amazing”. “Every gift we got and every art made was so unique and amazing. Thanks for all your efforts; it really means a lot to us. I feel truly blessed. Didn’t want to open #Prabhas, @Ranadaggubati’s gifts. We will unbox them once we all meet. Thank you so much Japan. Loads of love.”

Shot in Telugu and Tamil, the Baahubali franchise was dubbed into Hindi and Malayalam. Interestingly, all the four versions of the film did exceptionally good business at the ticket window. At the ticket window, 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 globe. In Tamil Nadu, the film minted over 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.
