‘Baahubali’ box office collections added yet another gem in the film’s crown as the Rana Daggubati starrer became the first non-Hindi film to enter the Rs 500-crore club.

Ace Telugu director SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster multi-lingual film “Bahubali” has reportedly raked in Rs 500 crore in the three weeks since its release.

Sources in the ‘Baahubali’ film unit said the much-acclaimed movie has grossed record collections since it was released on July 10.

The Prabhas and Rana Daggubati-starrer hit around 4,000 screens worldwide in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam languages.

Also starring Ramya Krishna, Anushka and Tamanna in the lead roles, the film is touted as one of the most expensive films made in the country with a reported budget of about Rs 200 crore.

The film, much appreciated for its visual and other special effects, is a period action drama that took nearly three years to complete. However, the film left the narrative incomplete as a second part is expected to be released next year.

Presented by ace filmmaker Karan Johar in Hindi, the movie received appreciation from veterans like Amitabh Bachchan.

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan is the latest film personality to praise the hard work that had gone into the making of the movie.

“Bahubali” generated unprecedented interest among the audience in the run-up to its release and it managed to sustain it three weeks past its release.
