Even though, ace director S S Rajamouli would have been confident about Baahubali 2 rocking box-office records, going by the unprecedented pre-release hype, but would have taken by pleasant surprise as his epic fantasy grossed Rs 1000 crore across the world, in just 9 days flat trouncing the records of Bollywood biggies like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan.

Till now the top grosser is PK with Rs 710 crore. Prompting, production house Arka Media to release a poster on the new milestone so soon and so fast, in fact, even before the news of massive openings could sink in. “Surely, Rs 1000 gross collections in nine days is an unbeatable record and it would take even actor-par-excellence like Aamir Khan to some time to break it.

Telugu cinema never has been so admired and celebrated,” says ace producer Aswini Dutt. Surely, it’s proudest moment for Telugus since renowned English channel BBC described it as ‘fantasy epic’ and a ‘special effect extravaganza’ that shattered box office records in the US and UK. Despite song and dance sequences, it’s not a Bollywood film but a Tollywood film shot in Hyderabad in Telugu and Tamil languages that is sweeping viewers in the US and UK of their feet.

Hollywood critic Mike McCahill says on BBC: ‘World viewers have embraced the film and Indian cinema is surely flexing its muscles and showing to the world that they can match up with Hollywood action films, with a fraction of a budget spent on ‘Fast & Furious’ and ‘Guardians of Galaxy’.”

Meanwhile, Hindi filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted on the landmark achievement saying: “The biggest milestone has been reached by the biggest blockbuster of Indian cinema.”

Giving a break-up of its world-wide collections, trade expert Taran Adarsh says: “The film has grossed Rs 800 crore in Indian market and Rs 200 crore, including Rs 100 crore in the US and making waves in the UK, Egypt, Australia, South Korea and other countries to march into hall of fame.”
