Baahubali 25th Day Box Office Collection
SS Rajamouli’s “Baahubali the Beginning” (Bahubali) is unstoppable at ticket counters. The movie has grossed approximately Rs 485 crore at the worldwide box office in 23 days, bucking a trend. In recent years, a trend has emerged where any big movie loses 80% of its opening day screen count in three weeks. There are two main reasons for this: first, most of the movies fail to sustain the crowd-pulling ability after two weeks. Secondly, there is always the threat of new releases, which eat into the share of the existing movies. But “Baahubali the Beginning” seems to be an exception, as it continues to drive movie buffs to theatres even after three weeks. The movie has reportedly been successful in retaining nearly 2,000 screens across the globe in its fourth week and has continued to keep cash registers ringing. In its fourth week, “Baahubali the Beginning” is clashing with new releases such as Hindi movie “Drishyam”, Tamil films “Idhu Enna Maayam”, “Orange Mittai”and “Sakalakala Vallavan Appatakkar”, and Telugu flicks “Mantra 2”, “Mirchi Lanti Kurradu”, “Dhana Lakshmi Thalupu Thadithey” and “Challenge”.
