BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION (Hindi) has grossed 245 crore nett apprx in its first week and smashed records by unimaginable margins. The previous first week record was SULTAN at 208.99 crore nett and this film has done around 17% more but that does not tell the whole story as if we look at the territory figures the gaps are much more. SULTAN in Mumbai held the first week record at 61.59 crore nett and BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION (Hindi) has grossed 85 crore nett plus. In Delhi/UP the figure of SULTAN was 40 crore nett and here it is 45 crore nett but this circuit has capacity problems which limits the gains. In East Punjab, BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION (Hindi) grossed 27.50 crore nett apprx and the record first week business of SULTAN was 21.96 crore nett.
The film is such a huge blockbuster that it will start to break ALL TIME CIRCUIT records in the next day or two. In a circuit like CP Berar the film has grossed more in one week than the lifetime of SULTAN. A blockbuster of this proportion has not been seen in a long time and it much bigger than the likes of DANGAL, PK, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN and 3 IDIOTS.
BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION is easily the biggest blockbuster of the decade and may well turn out to the biggest blockbuster this century also. GADAR - EK PREM KATHA (2001) is the biggest blockbuster post 2000 and the way BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION is going at the moment you can't rule the film turning out to be a bigger blockbuster than that film.
BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION grossed a huge 20 crore nett as per early estimates on its second Friday which is another record. The film has All TIME RECORDS now from day one to day eight and this looks set to continue for a long time. The total of the film is 265 crore apprx in eight days in Hindi. The previous day eight record was DANGAL at 17.84 crore nett.
The film is phenomenal all over but in the Gujarat belt it is just crazy especially Saurashtra which is recording numbers which are just unbelievable. Some theatres in places like Rajkot, Junagadh, Bhuj have seen collections that are more than double of any release before. The film is breaking records in Gujarat by miles and this could take the film to a huge 150 crore nett in Mumbai circuit. It was only in January 2015 that PK went past the 100 crore nett mark in Mumbai and just two and a half years later this film is going towards 150 crore which will be almost 50% more. The collections of BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION in Hindi till date are as follows.
Week One - 2,45,00,00,000 apprx
Week Two - 20,00,00,000 apprx (Friday)
Grand Total - 2,65,00,00,000
The film is now the fifth highest grosser as far as Hindi language films are concerned as it crosses DHOOM 3 (2013) in eight days. It will go past SULTAN (2016) and BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN (2015) over the weekend and then by the end of the week it will cruise past OK (2014) and may even beat DANGAL (2016).
The Hollywood release GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 could not really stand up to BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION and grossed around 2 crore nett apprx on its first day.
