Baahubali 2 Breaks All Records: Mints Over 100 Crores at the Box Office on First Day Alone

Probably the most anticipated movie sequel in history, Baahubali 2 has been at the top of all discussions since the massive success of it's first installment. And it hasn't disappointed.

The sequel has opened to a record-breaking occupancy of 100% in most states as reported by trade analyst Taran Adarsh through Twitter.

Baabubali 2: The Conclusion has reportedly grossed over Rs 100 crore in it's first day alone, making it the biggest opening of an Indian film in history, breaking the previous record created by Shah Rukh Khan's 'Happy New Year' which grossed over Rs 44 crores on it's opening day. The Hindi version of the movie, which has been distributed by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, alone has grossed over 30-40 crores.

Taran Adarsh praised the achievement of the movie for claiming the throne, despite having been released on a non-Holiday weekend. No Bollywood big budget/banner movie has even been able to come close to it.

The Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer released on 28th April, is probably the most talked-about movie of the 21st century. We can't recall another movie that has been able to generate this kind of a buzz even before it's release.

Long queues could be seen outside theaters as people waited to finally watch the much-awaited magnum-opus by SS Rajamouli. Despite Friday being a working day, several people took leaves from their work especially to watch it on it's first day before any spoilers are revealed.

The nationwide craze for the movie is so much, that some tickets have been sold for as high as Rs 4000 in Andhra Pradesh. The state has recorded the maximum business for the movie.

With mostly positive reviews and word-of-mouth, the movie is only expected to roar louder on Saturday and Sunday and shatter all box-office records.

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is one of the expensive Indian films ever - with a budget of Rs 250 crores, which it most likely will cover-up by the end of the first weekend only.
