In the last two years, no film was made in India that could challenge the opening day record created by SS Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Beginning.
In 2015, Baahubali released on 4,000 screens across the country and reportedly raked in Rs 50 crore on its opening day itself.
According to reports, the opening day worldwide collection of Baahubali 1 was pegged at more than Rs 60 crore. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is believed to have already earned Rs 500 crore via satellite and theatrical rights even before its release.
The satellite rights of the Hindi version of Baahubali 2 were bought by Sony TV for Rs 51 crore, which is the highest amount paid for a dubbed film so far.
It is also the highest price the channel has paid for a regional film for television screening. It seems like Baahubali 2 is all set to open a new chapter in the Indian film industry.
