SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster film Baahubali 2 recently released in China, and to say that it has been received favourably would be putting it mildly. The film has already collected a sum of Rs 16.24 crore on its opening day.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh recently shared the figures on his Twitter handle. He wrote, “#Baahubali2 opens VERY WELL in CHINA… Debuts at No 3 position… Opening day numbers are lower than #SecretSuperstar and #HindiMedium, but higher than #BajrangiBhaijaan [all 2018 releases in China]… Fri $ 2.43 mn [₹ 16.24 cr]. Shows: 51,494. Footfalls: 484,276.”
Baahubali 2 had hit the big screen in April, 2017 in India and had done exceedingly well. It had become the first film to cross the Rs 500 crore mark. Baahubali: The Beginning had earned 123 million dollars in China. Therefore, the great numbers for the sequel don’t really come as a surprise.
