SS Rajamouli’s Magnum Opus film, Baahubali – The conclusion has released today in China. The movie has got a massive 7000 screens release in Mainland China. On the other side, the movie openings are also strong as well. Even before the completion of the Day One, the movie has crossed the lifetime biz of Baahubali – The Beginning ($1.18 Million) in China. So, we may expect big numbers for the film in the long run. The movie is being released by EStars Media, which also handled Baahubali: The Beginning release in China back then.
The Chinese market has increased by leaps and bounds in the last one year or so. We have seen films like Dangal, Secret Superstar, and Bajrangi Bhaijaan making big money there. Only if it performs strongly in China, Baahubali-2 can beat the record of Dangal’s lifetime collections of 1950 Crore. Baahubali-2 now stands at the lifetime gross of Rs 1600 Crores. If it works with the audience there, it should not be very difficult. The Chinese version of the film is trimmed by 27 minutes to suit the taste of the audience there. Baahubali-2 has recently made Telugu Cinema proud by winning three at the 65th National Awards.
