‘Baahubali’ is shocking all doing well even in Hindi. Two multiplex chaines in Bihar confirmed that they increased number of shows to three per day. An exhibitor says, “We are taking ‘I Love NY off’, it’s a disaster; we’re replacing it with ‘Baahubali’. The opening has surprised us all. Never before has a dubbed South Indian film scored so high at the box- office.”
Another exhibitor predicted Baahubali to become biggest hits in Indian film industry. But this is worrying Salman Khan as his film ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is releasing next week as leading exhibitor from Mumbai multiplex chain says, they will not remove ‘Baahubali’ even for ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
An executive from multiplex says, “I am not saying that a Salman-starrer needs to feel threatened by any film, no matter how big a hit. But the fact is ‘Baahubali’ is showing signs of becoming a much bigger hit than expected. It’s bound to affect ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. It is likely that Bajrangi may not get the number of screens and theatres that it was expected to. Several theatres would rather continue with ‘Baahubali’. A certified blockbuster is any day a safer bet than a potential blockbuster”.
Baahubali starring Prabhas, Rana, Tamanna, Anushka is directed by Rajamouli. His dad Vijayendra Prasad provided story for Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
