After breaking records in India, Ss Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion ventured into the China market on May 4. The film had a superb opening at US$2.85 million (Rs. 19 crore). Baahubali 2 rleased in around 18,000 screens and it became the third highest opener in China for Indian films.
The Indian film industry has found a goldmine in the Chinese market for their films. Before Ss Rajamouli's Baahubali 2, Aamir Khan's Secret Superstar, Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Irrfan Khan's Hindi Medium had released.
In China, Baahubali 2 could not beat the opening day record set by Secret Superstar and Hindi Medium but it did outperform its prequel Baahubali: The Beginning's lifetime business in one day.
Baahubali 2 has made Rs 1,700 crore so far worldwide and if it does well at the Chinese Box Office too, it will go ahead to become India's most successful film.
