SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion has taken the Indian box office by storm even before the release through the advance booking. A number of shows have gone sold out from yesterday as there is a huge demand for tickets.
The audience seems to be too eager to see how Mahendra Baahubali avenges the death of his father Amarendra Baahubali and why Kattappa killed the latter.
But this eagerness is not limited to India. The craze for Baahubali 2 is seen in the West too. In fact, the Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer has already scored high in the United States of America even before its release. The film has earned Rs19 crore so far through the advance booking.
This is also confirmed by Great India Films, the US distributor. In a note shared on their social media channels, they have said, “We are proud to announce that advance ticket sales have already eclipsed the highest-grossing Indian film (of any language) on opening day. We have passed $3 million in pre-sales and are adding almost $100,000 to this total every hour. The film is also releasing in a record-breaking 425 theatres with over 1100 screens in North America alone.”
The note was shared by trade analyst Ramesh Bala on Twitter.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is releasing in 9000 screens worldwide and around 6500 screens in India on 28 April.
