Bahubali Sequel Breaks Rs.1000 Crore Mark

The movie sequel Bahubali 2, starring Prabhas, Rana Dagubatti and Anushka Shetty, and directed by SS Rajamouli, has now crossed the Rs.1000 crore mark in box office earnings:

This makes the movie the most successful by far in the history of Indian movies. Normally, earning Rs.100 crores is enough to earn a title of successful blockbuster - but Rs.1000 crores is absolutely unheard of. Some are speculating the movie may even reach the Rs.1500-crore mark, as director Rajamouli is teasing the possibility of a 3rd movie, whose story he says would be substantially different from the 2 preceding films.

is the popularity due to the populations hunger for its own history than the concocted history of their invaders (akbar)? or tame interpration of their heros (baji rao)? there are reports of a tamil movie on adhitya karikala cholan starring vikram which was apparently shelved and revived.

only kaju, other crazy loony leftists even said the movie is 'casteist', communal as it doesn't show any muslims, and against women.. lollz..
People trolled those leftist 'critics' who gave 2.5 out of 5.. and they ranted that it was another example of 'intolerance' under Modi..
