Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has nearly grossed Rs. 1700 crore worldwide and is currently the second highest grossing Indian film across the globe.
Dangal that has recently overtaken Baahubali 2 is still raking in moolah in China. Aamir Khan’s wrestling drama has grossed over Rs. 1100 crore in China and still counting.
Although Dangal has surpassed Baahubali 2’s worldwide gross, the latter still has a chance to beat the former and take the top seat.
Baahubali 2 hasn’t yet released in China. If the magnum opus directed by Rajamouli makes an impact at the Chinese box office, then beating Dangal and reclaiming its top seat wouldn’t be a big task.
However, dismal show of Baahubali: The Beginning in China has been worrying the makers so much that they are still unable to come up with a plan to make the second part work.
It will not be easy for Baahubali 2 to make a mark at the box office of China because of the lackluster performance of the first part.
Baahubali 2 is a huge success in India because of the hype that was created by its predecessor and factors like ‘Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?’ So Baahubali 2 will have to hope for the best in China without any pre release buzz.
Currently Rajamouli and Arka Media Works are working out on various plans to grab the attention of Chinese film lovers.
