Yet another record has been accomplished by SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 [Hindi]. In just six days, the film has netted the kind of collections which have put it into the Top-10 Highest Grossers of all times. On Wednesday, the film collected Rs. 24 crore* more. With this, the magnum opus now stands at Rs. 221 crore*. While these are mind boggling numbers in any case, considering the fact that never before has such euphoria been seen for a film on this side of the millennium since Anil Sharma and Sunny Deol‘s Gadar – Ek Prem Katha, the ease and margin at which the records are being broken is a case study in itself.
This is how the list of Top-10 Highest Grossers of all times looks like, and Baahubali 2 [Hindi] is already sitting pretty at Number 9 spot in just six days:
Dangal – Rs. 387.38 crore
PK – Rs. 340.80 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs. 321 crore
Sultan – Rs. 301.50 crore
Dhoom: 3 – Rs. 284 crore
Krrish 3 – Rs. 244.92 crore
Kick – Rs. 232 crore
Chennai Express – Rs. 227 crore
Baahubali 2 [Hindi] – Rs. 221 crore* (6 days)
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs. 210 crore
By tonight, the film would surpass Kick too and find itself at Number 7 spot. While Krrish 3 and Dhoom:3 records too would be surpassed in a jiffy, all eyes are on whether Baahubali 2 manages to surpass even Sultan by this Sunday itself. The film is keeping is momentum intact and with no competition from any Hindi film in the second week as well, the Karan Johar backed film has all going for it to enter the 300 Crore Club in 10 days flat!
