BookMyShow today announced that it has sold over 3.3 million tickets so far with 12 tickets every second for one of the most anticipated movies of the year- Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. It surpasses Baahubali 1 by over 350%. Even though the bookings have not yet opened across all cinemas, especially in the South where the film is expected to receive an incredible response, BookMyShow is witnessing a phenomenal traction across the country for Baahubali 2 .
With this, BookMyShow has also already clocked its highest ever advance sales revenues for a movie, while the film's release is still two days away. This record was previously held by Aamir Khan starrer Dangal.
Ashish Saksena, COO-Cinemas, BookMyShow said, "BookMyShow is experiencing an unprecedented advance booking for Baahubali 2. We have already sold over 1 million tickets across languages, even when the bookings have been live for just over a day. Though Baahubali 2 is largely perceived to be loved by South Indian audience, the response from Hindi speaking markets has been highly encouraging as well. Once all the cinemas in South come out with their schedules for the film, we expect the online ticket sales for Baahubali 2 to surge at an increasingly fast pace."
