Baahubali 2 [Hindi] rampage is continuing at the Box Office on regular weekdays as well. The film collected Rs. 15 crore* more on Tuesday, its 11th day, and that is an unheard of number for a working day, especially when a film is in its second week. The film has collected Rs. 357.75 crore* already and that’s practically an average of over Rs. 30 crore every day ever since its release.
Now this is a phenomenon that has never ever been witnessed before in the history of Indian cinema!
The film would actually see a rise in collections today due to partial holiday of Buddh Poornima. It would settle down to normal levels again tomorrow though by that time, at least Rs. 30 crore more would have further come in for the SS Rajamouli directed film.
At the beginning of the week one wondered whether a double digit score would be maintained right through the weekdays. However, that has now happened by a huge margin and what would be interesting to see is whether the film manages collections of over 10 crore on its third Friday as well, considering the fact that two new Hindi films [Sarkar 3, Meri Pyaari Bindu] are set to release then. If and when that happens, it would be yet another major feat for the Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty starrer.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
