Prabhas starrer "Baahubali" has done earth-shattering business at the Malaysian box office. The Tamil version of the film is now set to beat the record of Vikram's "I".
SS Rajamouli's flick has earned Rs. 4.69 crore as per online trade tracker Andhra Box Office in its three-week run in Malaysia. Now, it requires about Rs. 1.41 crore to beat the lifetime record of Vikram's "I", which collected about Rs. 6.10 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama.
"Baahubali" made a business of $263.16K (Approx Rs.1.68 Cr) in its first weekend at the Malaysian box office. By the end of the second weekend, the total business made by the flick stood at $610.73K (Approx Rs.3.89 crore) and it ended the third weekend by making a total business of $733.26K (Rs.4.69 crore).
The Malaysian box office has been a good market for Tamil films. Hence, it does not come as a surprise to see "Baahubali" creating wonders in Malaysia. The movie can possibly beat the "I" record by this weekend.
However, "Baahubali" has beaten the record of some of the recent big films like Rajinikanth starrer "Lingaa", which had collected a little over Rs. 4 crore and "Kaththi", which had raked in Rs. 3.80 crore at the Malaysian box office. But, the aforementioned other movies had A-list Tamil heroes Rajinikanth and Vijay, respectively.
"Baahubali" features Telugu actors like Prabhas and Rana Daggubati in the lead roles. Yet, the film performed exceptionally well at the Malaysian box office. It is undoubtedly the brand of SS Rajamouli, which has played a major role in pulling the audience into the theatres.
Meanwhile, the combined gross collection of "Baahubali" stands at Rs. 435 crore in 18 days. The movie has been made in two parts with the budget of Rs. 250 crore. It is simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu and dubbed in Malayalam and Hindi.
