Baahubali 2 is rewriting all records in Indian Cinema. The film is like a craze which has enveloped entire country and irrespective of region, economic capability and creative sensibilities, people are queuing outside theatres to watch the epic film.
For the longest time, it has been said that superstars are the ultimate crowd pullers and their star power goes beyond the actual content of the film. But, the Box Office collection of the Hindi version of Baahubali 2 prove otherwise. Prabhas is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in South, but in Bollywood, the Khans rule. Despite that, day 1 collections of Bahubali 2 were much higher than those of Salmans latest release Sultan and Aamir Khans Dangal.Another interesting thing to be noted is that while Dangal and Sultan were festival releases, Baahubali hit the screens on a non holiday weekend.
The film is doing exceedingly well overseas too, and is the ultimate proof that entertainment triumphs over star power.
