The first part has earned critical reception and amusing box office collections hitting more than Rs 600 crores. Baahubali is currently the third highest grossing movie in India. Starting as a regional movie, this movie’s excellence has prevailed across the whole country, like a wildfire. Now, the sequel is on, people are eagerly waiting for the answers, peculiarly ‘Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali?’ (WKKB), the most important and intriguing one.
Stunning everyone, Baahubali has already earned Rs 500 crores before the release. Now, the collections post the release can be more than or at least Rs 1000 crores.
Recently, the Karnataka government announced a cap of Rs 200 on movie tickets prices, quoting that the new prices will be considered from May 1. Though the latest rumors suggest the implementation of this plan from April 27th itself, tickets are already on websites ranging from Rs 300 to Rs 800. If this goes like this for three more days, i.e; till May 1st, the collections from Karnataka will contribute a handsome sum to Baahubali collections.
