SS Rajamouli's magnum opus "Baahubali: The Beginning" has made a roaring business in India and abroad.
Now, the latest reports from Kerala suggest that the film has collected the highest box office collection in India from a theatre in Thiruvananthapuram.
Ariesplex SL Cinemas in Kunnumpuram Road has reportedly collected Rs 2.8 crore in 75 days of the film's run in India and the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation is said to have received Rs 58 lakh as entertainment tax for "Baahubali" alone. This is the first time that the government has received such a huge amount as entertainment tax from a single film.
"Baahubali" became the first film to make such a collection from a single theatre in India in such a short span of time.
The film made with a whopping budget of Rs 250 crore has grossed more than Rs 430 crore in India and Rs 70 crore at the overseas box office after its release on 10 July.
"Baahubali", which has Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles, will also be released in China, South Korea, Japan and some European countries in a few months at over 5,000 screens.
