The wait is over. In what can be considered a historic achievement, India’s biggest motion picture, Baahubali, has now become the country’s biggest box-office earner in terms of nett collections. At the end of its fourth weekend yesterday, Baahubali clocked a sensational nett amount of 345 crores to surpass the previous highest earner, PK, with 339 crores.
What’s even more staggering is that Baahubali pulled off this stunning feat all in just 24 days and the Baahubali storm is only looking to destroy more records all over. Meanwhile, after shattering all the existing south Indian records by a huge margin, Baahubali is all set to cross the sensational 5 billion gross mark by today.
Interestingly, Rajkumar Hirani, the director of PK is Rajamouli’s favorite director in India and he now surpassed his record. However, PK still stands much atop of Baahubali in terms of worldwide gross with more than 700 crores. To challenge this record, Baahubali must release soon in China and other international languages.
