“As of Saturday, the film has grossed Rs.303 crore worldwide,” trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

“The Hindi version of the film has netted over Rs.50 crore, setting a new record for a dubbed film. Despite the onslaught of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the numbers of ‘Baahubali’ have not been affected,” he said.

A mythological drama about two brothers at war for a kingdom, the film stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles.

The second part in the Rs.250 crore franchise is slated for release next year. (IANS)
