The movie, which was made with a mammoth budget of Rs 250 crore has already crossed Rs 1000 crore mark worldwide. In the US alone, Baahubali 2 had earned over Rs 100 crore until Tuesday.
The movie has managed to charm its audience all over India and the world with its epic story telling and larger-than-life visuals.
However, Aamir Khan starrer Dangal 's re-release in China has propped up a new challenge to Baahubali 2 in the box office after Dangal recieved enormous response in China.
Until Tuesday, Dangal has earned Rs 121.73 crore at the global box-office. This makes the worldwide collection of Dangal Rs 867 crore and the movie is racing towards Rs 900 crore mark worldwide. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh and Ramesh Bala tweeted

Baahubali 2 has already earned Rs 111 crore at the US box-office and is not stopping the race anytime soon. In India, Baahubali 2 will soon cross the Rs 400-crore mark in net box-office collections.

Directed by S S Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 has an ensemble cast of Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Sathyaraj, Tamannaah, Anushka and Nasser. Filmmaker Karan Johar's Dharma Productions is presenting the Hindi version of the film. The movie is sequel to Baahubali: The Beginning.
According to the movie reviews on several media platforms, the film is much more grandeur than its prequel with incredible visual effects, high voltage drama, strong plot and some mind-blowing fighting sequences.
Other big-ticket films that are to release in 2017 and 2018 such as Tubelight starring Salman Khan, S. Shankar directed 2.0, Salman Khan-starrer Tiger Zinda Hai and Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan are expected to give tough competition to Baahubali 2's box-office records.
