- "Every forthcoming biggie will be compared to Baahubali 2,"said Mr Adarsh
- The Hindi version of the film has made Rs 245 crore so far
- All versions of Baahubali had made Rs 303 over the opening weekend
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who closely follows the box office progress of Baahubali 2, pointed out that Dangal and Sultan's release over Holiday weekends is also a predominant factor in their box office scores. Now, Baahubali 2, releasing on April 28, has broken the myth of sorts. "Every forthcoming biggie will be compared to Baahubali 2 henceforth, irrespective of the genre," Mr Adarsh said of Baahubali 2 setting benchmarks at every corner.
