While records continued to be smashed left, right and center with very passing hour, there is a lot more that Baahubali 2 [Hindi] has managed in four days that very few All Time Blockbusters have managed in their entire lifetime. That’s because with Rs. 168.25 crore in its kitty in just four days, the film has now also entered the list of ALL TIME HIGHEST GROSSERS already.
That’s correct, and this is how the list looks like:
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
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs. 210 crore
Happy New Year – Rs. 205 crore
3 Idiots – Rs. 202.50 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs. 199 crore
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Rs. 188.92 crore
Bajirao Mastani – Rs. 188 crore
Bang Bang – Rs. 181 crore
Baahubali 2 – Rs. 168.25 crore
Dabangg 2 – 156.50 crore
Tanu Weds Manu Returns – Rs. 152 crore
Bodyguard – Rs. 149 crore
Dilwale – Rs. 148 crore
Now the manner in which the film is continuing to do exceedingly well on the weekdays as well, it is bound to go past the lifetime of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani today. That would make it the 13th highest grosser ever in just five days! It would be an altogether different story though if one actually counts the collections from South as well. However, to keep it fair from the comparison standpoint, let’s just keep the focus on the Hindi version.
All said and done, the film (even in its Hindi version) is now set to hit the 200 crore, 250 crore and 300 crore lifetime in the quickest time possible and what remains to be seen is how much further does it go from there.
