The Hindi version of "Baahubali - the Beginning" (Bahubali) is gaining momentum at the box office, while "ABCD 2" (Any Body Can Dance) has shattered the records of "Ek Villain".
The Hindi version of SS Rajamouli's directorial film, which garnered positive reviews worldwide, has picked up its pace in theaters.
"Baahubali - the Beginning" registered average occupancy on Friday, due to which it earned only ₹5.15 crore. However, the business went up on Saturday due to strong word of mouth and it remained strong on Sunday and Monday.
Despite being a working day (Monday), "Baahubali" raked in more than its opening day box office collection. The total four days box office collection of the dubbed version of "Baahubali" stands at ₹28.45 crore.
"#Baahubali [dubbed Hindi version] is SUPER-STRONG on Mon. Fri 5.15 cr, Sat 7.09 cr, Sun 10.11 cr, Mon 6.10 cr. Total: ₹ 28.45 cr. SUPERB!" trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film, which was released on 10 July in five languages worldwide, features an ensemble cast starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj, Nassar, Adivi Sesh, Tanikella Bharani and Sudeep.
Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor starrer "ABCD 2" has shattered the lifetime box office of Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha starrer "Ek Villain".
The "Student Of The Year" actor Sidharth had taken the first rank with "Ek Villain" lifetime business last year, followed by Alia Bhatt's "2 States".
But this year, Varun has taken the first rank with "ABCD 2" four weeks collection, beating the records of "Ek Villain" and "2 States".
"#ABCD2 [Week 4] Fri 32 lacs, Sat 53 lacs, Sun 70 lacs. Total: ₹ 105.99 cr. India biz. SUPER HIT," box office analyst Adarsh added.
"ABCD 2" box office collection stands at ₹105.99 crore, "Ek Villain" income stands at ₹105.62 and "2 States" total is ₹102.13 crore. "ABCD 2" is Varun and Shraddha's highest grosser, until now.
