SS Rajamouli's magnum opus Bahubali: The Conclusion has been doing a roaring business across the globe, and in Kerala, all the four versions of the big-budget entertainer are performing well to become the biggest grosser at the Kerala box office.
Bahubali 2 had already broken the record of Mohanlal's Pulimurugan in becoming the fastest movie to enter Rs. 1 crore club at Kochi multiplexes in five days. Now, the multi-lingual entertainer is set to become the fastest Rs. 1.5 crore grosser at the multiplexes in a day or two during the weekend. It has so far minted Rs. 1.43 crore from 480 shows at PVR Cinemas, Cinepolis, Cinemax, Pan Cinemas, Q Cinemas and Cinepolis VIP.
The sequel to the blockbuster, starring Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Ramya Krishnan, Naasar, and Sathyaraj in main roles, made a collection of Rs. 20.57 lakh on the 7th day alone from a total of 73 shows at the multiplexes with 31 houseful shows and 93.94% theatre occupancy.
While the Prabhas-starrer had entered the Rs. 1 crore club within five days of theatrical run at the six multiplexes in Kochi, the movie has achieved the feat in seven days at six theatres of Carnival Cinemas in the state. Out of 430 shows, the movie had an average theatre occupancy of 95.71% in as many as 278 shows during the first week.
On the 7th day, Bahubali 2 made more than Rs. 12.88 lakh with 88.10% occupancy from a total of 58 shows at Carnival Cinemas.
