BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION (Hindi) held on extremely well on its second day as it collected around the 40 crore nett region again after a 40.75 crore nett day one. After such an extraordinary opening you would expect a drop but there is hardly any drop. The records continue to fall as after an all time record day one, it also has an all time record on day two with the highest collections ever on day two for a Hindi language film.
The most astounding thing about these collections is not that they are coming on non holidays as DHOOM 3 has set huge records on non holidays but that they are coming with 12-15% of the market are missing. This is because there are limited shows of the Hindi version in Nizam/Andhra, Mysore and Tamil Nadu/Kerala. Real value of these collections are in excess of 45 crore nett. The business of BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION (Hindi) over the first two days is as follows.
Friday - 40,75,00,000
Saturday - 40,00,00,000 apprx
Total - 80,75,00,000
BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION has seen a drop in collections in its South Indian language versions especially the Telugu one but that is how box office works there and it is a regular thing. The all India figures will be updated later.
BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION continued to wreck havoc across India as it had another 100 crore nett day after a huge 122 crore nett on day one. The Hindi version had hardly any drop and the main drop came from Nizam/Andhra which was expected and now the film will settle in that state after an humungous first day. The total of the film stands at 222 crore nett after two days and it has become the highest grossing film in India in just two days beating RAEES (129 crore nett), KHAIDI NO 150 (120 crore nett)) and BADRINATH KI DULHANIA (114 crore nett). The collections of BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION are almost double of these films. The business of BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONLCUSION (All Languages) over the first two days is as follows:
Friday - 1,22,00,00,000
Saturday - 1,00,00,00,000
Total - 2,22,00,00,000 apprx
Note - These collections could go higher at the end of the week as there are no DCR's in the South due to films playing on rentals so collections are worked out through shares at many places..
