The countdown has finally begun for Baahubali: The Conclusion to finally hit the theatres. The film has acquired a huge fan following as the fans are yearning to find out the answer to a question that has haunted them for the past two years: Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? The first instalment of the franchise had ended with a suspense and the mystery will unfold when the film releases in more than 9,000 screens across the globe.
But how much moolah will the magnum opus rake in at the ticket counters? SS Rajamouli’s film has earned enough money due to theatrical rights whereas it has been sold to a prominent TV channel for a whopping Rs 51 crore. But a film’s popularity among the viewers is gauged by its performance at cinema halls.
According to our predictions, here’s how much the film will fare on its opening day.
Hindi version- Rs 25-30 crore
All languages- Rs 75-85 crore
When we talk about Box Office collections, there is a difference between the money a film earns in the north and south India. In the southern part of India, there is no entertainment tax levied on a film whereas the situation is entirely difficult here. An entertainment tax charged means the producers get a lesser share of the earnings. While the money earned in south India is the gross collection, for north the collection is shown following deduction of taxes.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is releasing in 6,500 screens across India and 2,500 screens internationally. Adding the above two estimated collections, we predict that Baahubali 2 will earn Rs 115 crore on Day 1 in India. The remaining 2,5000 screens might earn Rs 30 crore approximately. To sum up, the Prabhas-Rana Daggubati starrer might return with Rs 145 crore worldwide on the first day. Can you believe it? It is a mega blockbuster right from the beginning.
Directed by SS Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 features Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan in pivotal roles.
