Shot in Telugu and Tamil, the film was dubbed into Hindi and Malayalam. Interestingly, all the four versions of the film did exceptionally good business at the ticket window. Baahubali 2 has many first-time records. It’s the first Indian film to breach into the INR 1500 crore club, crushing all records across the length and breadth of 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 INR 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 to become one of the biggest Indian grosser, there’s probably no record left to be broken by the film.
