New Delhi: SS Rajamouli's magnanimous project 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' has smashed several records and created new ones, making it almost impossible for any other film to touch the pinnacle record it has reached.

The Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer's latest collections over the weekend indicate towards new records. Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the latest figures of Hindi version.

He tweeted:

'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' features an impressive ensemble cast of Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nassar in pivotal roles besides an incredibly amazing supporting cast. 

'Baahubali 2' also happens to be the first Hindi dubbed film to breach the Rs 100 crore club. It has also been released in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. In Telugu states, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the second part in the "Baahubali" franchise could have garnered over Rs 100 crore.

"Sunday numbers are yet to come in. Going by early estimates, the film could have easily grossed over Rs 100 crore from Telangana and Andhra. It has already broken every record of all other big Telugu films," trade analyst Anand Vanga told IANS.

Trinath, another trade analyst, said there's no stopping the film at the box office. "With no competition, the film is making a killing at the ticket window. It could be the first Telugu film to even gross over Rs 200 crore only from Telangana and Andhra. For the next two weeks, the film will have an uninterrupted run at the cinemas," he said.

In Tamil Nadu, where the film released in nearly 650 screens, it is estimated that the film might have grossed over Rs 30 crore in its opening weekend. "The official numbers are still being calculated. Sources from within the industry say that the film could have raked in over Rs 30 crore in the state.

"If the early morning shows on April 28 were not cancelled, it could have easily minted another Rs 5 crore," Trinath said, citing a financial dispute between the producers of the film and its Tamil Nadu distributor.

In Kerala, according to the film's distributor Global United Media, the film has reportedly grossed over Rs. 20 crore in the first three days. In the US, the film was released via Great India Films, who said in a statement that the film has minted $10.49 million (Rs 68 crore).

From other parts of the world, the film is said to have collected Rs 71 crore in its first three days, trade gurus said.

The film is a masterpiece getting appreciation from fans all over the world including Rajinikanth and director Shankar.
