SS Rajamouli’s Magnum Opus film, Baahubali-2 is currently running in Japan. The movie is on its sixth week run at the box office. In the five weeks runs there, Baahubali-2 has collected a gross of half a million US dollars. The makers claim that this is amount is good and the movie is a hit there. But then, the box office experts say a big film collecting half a million dollars in a market like Japan should be considered a disaster.
Rajinikanth’s Muthu which released in Japan two decades ago grossed more than $1.5 million dollars back then. On the other side, there are rumours that the movie is unlikely to release in China. Only if it performs strongly in Overseas, 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.
On the other side, Rajamouli is working on a multi starer film with Young Tiger NTR and Mega Power Star Ram Charan. The film will be produced by DVV Danayya under his DVV Entertainments LLP Banner. Even though the senior producer is onboard, Rajamouli, Ram Charan, and NTR will also be the partners in the film production and will get a share in the movie profits as their remuneration. Rumours are that it is a Sports Genre Movie which revolves around the game of Boxing. Ram Charan and NTR will also beef up for their roles. We will have to wait for Rajamouli to reveal this
