According to official figures Baahubali day 1 box office collection will be around 50 crore (India Only). Thus Baahubali has become the biggest opener shattering all box office records of Happy New year, PK, Dhoom 3 etc.
Baahubali was released in above 4000 screens including dubbed versions (Hindi & Malayalam) in India. Now lets take a look at Baahubali box office collection day 1 report.
The film was houseful at many centers. The occupancy even in the morning shows was 90-100%. There were reports that Baahubali movie ticket is being sold in black in 10000 INR. It is hard to believe that even widest record release has failed to accommodate the audience.
The audience have gone crazy in South India over Baahubali. The police was called at some places to control the crowd. The film has got historic opening in AP, Nizam and Karnataka. The tremendous advance booking helped the film big time.
On the contrary the Hindi version was opened to poor response. The occupancy is 15-20% in the morning shows. Even in North India, Tamil & Telugu versions are performing better. The Hindi version was being backed by Karan Johar so it was expected that film will take a better opening. But with the absence of well know star among Hindi audience, it is hard for any film to take a good opening.
Bahubali First day collection for Telugu and Tamil versions will be around 35-40 crore. While Baahubali day 1 collection for Hindi version will be approximately 5 crore. So the overall Baahubali first day box office collection will be around 50 crore. It has broken the record of Haapy New Year for the highest opening day.
Baahubali Friday collection in overseas is around 16 crore. It has also grossed about 1 million $ in USA on Thursday previews. Thus It has broken the previous record of Aamir Khan starrer PK.
Baahubali day 1 box office collection will be 66 crore (Worldwide). Thus it has broken all records for any Indian movie. Baahubali is the biggest ever opener in the history of Indian cinema.
