Baahubali 2 box office collection day 26: Is SS Rajamouli film’s China release a threat to Aamir Khan’s Dangal?

While Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu sank without a trace last weekend, this week’s new films – Half Girlfriend and Hindi Medium — managed to do a tad better. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala had tweeted, “#Baahubali2 ‘s 24 Days WW BO: #India: Nett: ₹ 988 Cr Gross : ₹ 1,275 Cr Overseas: Gross : ₹ 290 Cr Total: ₹ 1,565 Crs”

The competition is clearly between Baahubali 2 and Dangal, as every new release is only falling flat at the box office. You guys have opened the flood gates for South Indian cinema to the world and given it a new identity.”

Baahubali 2 stars actors Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj, among others. Its Hindi version had by Sunday, collected Rs 478.30 crore nett. The bilingual film is the second one in the two-part franchise. I hope it crosses 2000 cr and above at the box office. SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 is inching towards Rs 1600-crore mark. Though Hindi Medium is getting a decent word of mouth, it doesn’t look like it’ll have a long run at the theaters. Baahubali: The Conclusion faced some threat from Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal due to the latter’s successful run at China box office, which according to many, might tak away its throne of being India’s highest grosser ever. But the latest news of Baahubali 2’s impending release in China in July, the race is set to get more intense. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter page and in a series of tweets wrote why the astounding success of both Baahubali 2 and Dangal is a game changer for Indian cinema. On the other hand, Dangal which released in China recently, had grossed Rs 1471 crore till Sunday.
