After setting the Indian cash registers on fire, SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 is all set to stir up another box-office storm as the film has been confirmed to hit the Japanese screens on December 29. Having grossed over Rs 1700 crore so far from its theatrical run in rest of the world, Baahubali 2 will hope to appeal to Japanese audiences in a big way. The film has been dubbed in Japanese and it has been passed by the censor board with G, an equivalent of U certificate in India.
A story about two brothers battling for the ownership of an ancient kingdom, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati played the male protagonists. The film features elaborate fight sequences and computer graphics including rampaging elephants and a bull stampede which have left both audiences and critics alike in awe. 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.
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 and Dangal to become the biggest Indian grosser, there’s no record left to be broken by the film.
