Baahubali 2 has done the unthinkable. It has given us the moment that all Indians have been waiting for. The film that has been crashing records every now and then has become the first film to cross the big billion mark at the box office.
The SS Rajamouli film starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Sathyaraj, Anushka Shetty and Ramya Krishnan has turned out to be the biggest Indian film ever. The craze, the hype and the euphoria has been tremendous right from Day 1 and finally, we can see all of it culminating into something huge.
The film raked in Rs 200 crore worldwide gross on its opening day itself and in a matter of 8 days, it has crossed the Rs 1000 crore mark too. Baahubali 2 is the first Indian film to achieve this. So it’s a moment of huge pride and victory for all Indians as Baahubali 2 takes the legacy of Indian cinema way ahead and puts it right ahead of other films on the global map.
