Baahubali 2 achieves a record that Dangal will not be able to surpass
Although Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is slowing down evidently, that hasn’t stopped the movie from creating new records. The movie’s Hindi version has scripted history by becoming the first ever Hindi film to earn Rs 500 crores.
Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which has been giving a stiff completion to Baahubali is far behind in this race and there is no chance for it to surpass the record as it’s theatrical run ended almost three months back. Currently, the movie is doing unbelievable business in China, recently becoming only the 33rd film in Chinese cinema history to cross one Billion RMB, which in Indian currency amounts to about Rs 1000 crore.
Baahubali 2’s Hindi version is an all-time number movie in Bollywood in the domestic market. This is the first Indian film to have collected Rs 500 crore in any Indian language in domestic market. The Hindi version of Baahubali 2’s entry to the Rs 500 crore club was confirmed by trade analyst Ramesh Bala. He tweeted,
