Baahubali 22nd Day Box Office Business
SS Rajamouli’s “Baahubali” has emerged as one of the biggest hits in Chennai. The movie has made fantastic collection and has broken several records. Now, it is on the verge of beating Ajith’s “Yennai Arindhaal” record. The combined collection of the two versions (Tamil+Telugu) of “Baahubali” in Chennai stands at Rs. 5.52 crore by the end of its third weekend, reports Behindwoods. It has already beaten the record of 2015 hits like “Kanchana 2”, which had raked in Rs. 5.16 crore, Kamal Haasan starrer “Papanasam”, which is still running in theatres and so far has earned Rs. 4.2 crore and Suriya’s “Massu”, which grossed Rs. 4.1 crore in the capital city of Tamil Nadu. Now, the next target for “Baahubali” is Ajith Kumar’s “Yennai Arindhaal”, which made Rs. 5.72 crore and is in the second position in the list of highest grossing movie at the Chennai box office in 2015. The SS Rajamouli’s flick requires about Rs. 20 lakh to beat it and it is expected to make the amount in its third week. “Baahubali (Tamil) – Rock solid on Monday in TN ,18th day of release. Many screens occupancy 85 to 100 % for Noon & Matinee. Blockbuster,” a leading critic and trade tracker tweeted about the Monday buzz.
Baahubali 4th Friday Box Office Collection
As per early trends, it raked in over Rs 8.02 Crore* gross on its fourth Friday. With this, the film has collected approximately Rs 465 crore gross at the worldwide box office in 22 days. But Salman Khan’s “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, which crossed the mark of Rs 466+ crore on Wednseday, has pushed “Baahubali the Beginning” down to the fourth spot. However, “Baahubali” is a two-part movie made with a whopping budget of Rs 250 crore. The film has been simultaneously made in Telugu and Tamil and dubbed in Malayalam and Hindi. Its first part, title “Baahubali the Beginning”, fetched around 135 crore from the sale of its distributions rights. The film has collected around Rs 250 crore for its distributors, who are on cloud nine. But, the movie business has been affected after cinema halls in the entire state decided to remain shut on 30 July as a mark of respect to APJ Abdul Kalam, who passed away on 27 July. “Baahubali” stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamanna Bhatia in the lead roles with Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj playing key characters.
