Baahubali to break highest release records
Mumbai : Like Baahubali 1, Baahubali 2 will surely break records. According to sources it will have the biggest release in the entire history of Indian Cinema.
The film is already set to release in more than 6000 screens and the numbers are likely to come closer to 7000. This film is starring Prabhas, Tamannaah Bhatia,Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty.
According to a source, “Bollywood films run on close to 5,000 screens across the country. In South India, 3,000-odd screens cater to major Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam films. Do the math. With no other film (Hindi or otherwise) arriving alongside Baahubali 2 on April 28, the only face-off in theatres will be the one on screen — between Prabhas and Rana Daggubati.”
The best of hindi films ever releases have maximum of 4500-5000 screens at the highest and even the biggest South films do not more than 2500-3000 screens at release.
The source added, “After being made at the biggest budget ever, it’s natural that the film’s placement will reflect that. Also, given the number of languages, the film will release in, it is expected to take in the biggest opening in the history of Indian cinema. EVER. Even if you assume the film releases across 6,500 screens, the first-day collections could well be to the tune of Rs 60 crore. Also, as April 28 is not a holiday, one cannot expect cent per cent collections all over, but they will be huge. Expect numbers to be in the excess of Rs 50 crore, at least. Don’t be surprised if numbers turn out to be even bigger since a film has never had such a lavish pan-India release before.”
So, let’s just wait for the biggest release ever.
