In the opening weekend, the film emerged as the all-time third highest grosser in overseas, surpassing several popular Hollywood extravaganzas.

Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh, tweeted that the estimated earnings of the movie have reached around Rs 30 crore for its Hindi version alone.

Before the release of the first film in 2015 Ashanti Omkar, host of the popular BBC Asian Network radio programme, had the chance to conduct some special interviews about the film. Baahubali 2-The Conclusion is an epic fantasy, produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under the banner Arka Media Works.

Actor Prabhas, who became a household name in Bollywood with the Baahubali franchise, will be seen next in "Saaho", which is being simultaneously shot in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.

Baahubali 2 collected 75 Crore worldwide on the fifth day.

The film has now managed to collect 785 crores worldwide, thus beating Aamir Khan's Dangal's collections which stood at 744 crores.

With all these huge amounts raking in, the total Baahubali 2 collections in four days comes to Rs 625 crore gross worldwide. Film's super villain Rana Daggubati received Rs 15 crore for doing the movie.

The Hindi theatrical rights fetched the makers Rs 120 crore, and in Andhra and Telangana, the film earned the makers Rs 130 crore from the sale of its theatrical rights. Sky is the limit for the film's full run figure as no biggie is releasing in the month of May across any film industry in India. For that, the Karan Johar backed film would need to score around 100 crore more in its second week, which for now definitely seems like a possibility.

In the USA, the film was released via Great India Films, who said in a statement that the film has minted $10.49 million (Rs 68 crore).

The film grossed higher $1 million repeatedly on Tuesday at the United States of America box office, taking whole five days collection to $12.3 to 12.5 million. The film is inching towards becoming the highest grosser in the USA. On the other hand, Baahubali 2 is rewriting box-office history with its collection.
