Baahubali's Box Office Report: Numbers Awaited But Business is Good
New Delhi: India's most expensive film has completed its first weekend in cinemas and while the complete numbers for Baahubali's Friday-Sunday business are still awaited, the trickle of information indicates that the film will be in the green.

Baahubali: The Beginning, part one of director SS Rajamouli's two-part epic, released in 4,000 screens globally in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi - its three-pronged attack gives it an advantage in volumes over other films. Collectively, the film made Rs 50 crores on day one - far ahead of Bollywood's biggest opener ABCD 2 which made Rs 14.30 crores on its first Friday - and until Sunday, had made Rs 85 crores. This collection is likely to rise once all the numbers are computed.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted:

On Saturday, he revealed that Baahubali had exploded off the starting block:

Baahubali has been made at a budget of Rs 250 crores - the cost of both parts to the film - and, as such, is more expensive than Rajinikanth's Enthiran.

Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah and Anushka Shetty, Baahubali is among this year's most awaited films. The day before it released, Hyderabad saw kilometre-long ticket queues. Trouble was reported in some areas with cops being called in to keep the peace after tickets ran out or were reportedly sold in black.
