Bajrangi Bhaijaan Vs Bahubali:
Some days back we posted an article about Bajrangi Bhaijaan worldwide collection and the fact that it has beaten Bahubali record. But there has been very much confusion among the audience about how it has surpassed Bahubali as there have been diffrernt figures circulating in media. Today we will explain some of the facts that ordinary people don’t know.
It’s been a record-breaking couple of weeks for film business in India. Both ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ are doing phenomenal business in the domestic markets and outside. But comparing a Telugu film ‘Baahubali’ with a Hindi film is not as simple and straight forward as comparing two Hindi films. There are so many factors that differentiate the two film industries.
Let’s first analyse some of the facts about both films.
Now we will compare Bajrangi Bhaijaan vs Bahubali box office collection. But first understand these terms.
Worldwide Gross: The total collections from ticket sales all over the world. Including entertainment tax.
India Gross: The total collections from ticket sales in India. Including entertainment tax.
India Net Collections: Entertainment tax is deducted from total gross collections.
Now keep in mind that Bahubali makers have given gross figures only which is usually done for Telugu films. While for Hindi films net collection are prefered.
*Update 29 July 2015: Bajrangi Bhaijaan has finally beaten Bahubali worldwide collection. Bajrangi Bhaijaan has crossed Bahubali 17 days collection in just 12 days. The film is showing better trends than the Telugu film and it will have a better hold in second and third week. While Bahubali is expected to cross 500 crore worldwide, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is eying at 600 crore.
*Update 5 August: Both Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali has crossed 500 crore at the worldwide box office. Though Bajrangi Bhaijaan is still ahead of Bahubali but the Prabhas starrer is showing better trends in third and fourth week. In fact Bahubali third week collection will be better than Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But still Bajrangi Bhaijaan will remain ahead of Bahubali due to the excellent second week.
*Update 12 August: Baahubali has hold up better in third and fourth week and the difference between between both these films is just 20 crore. After four open weeks, Bahubali is now facing competition from Mahesh Babu’s Srimanthudu. Bajrangi bhaijaan will also be out from most of cinemas in next week as Brothers is releasing. It will be interesting to see which film remains ahead after they complete their run.
*Update 22 August: A close battle is going on between Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali. The difference between the two films have been shortened to just 19 crore. Both these films have slowed down now as the new films have released. Especially Telugu film Srimanthudu and Kick 2 have taken a lot of screens away from Baahubali and ended its 4 weeks free run at box office. On the other hand Bajrangi Bhaijaan will only add few more crores before it completes its run.
So this week will decide that who will be ultimate winner between Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali.
Bahubali Vs Bajrangi Bhaijaan
*Note: These all are worldwide gross figures.
1st Week Total
596 (56 Days)
626 (49 Days)
In terms of gross figures, Kick will also edge past Baahubali. The tax rates are much lower down South especially for local films. Due to which first week net collection of Bahubali (186 Cr) will be on par with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
But Bahubali was a regional film which have no popular star in all over India. The fact that it has broken some records is an outstanding achievement. We should be proud of both these films rather than starting hate speech against each other. If Bahubali was a land mark film in the history of Indian cinema having stunning visuals then Bajrangi Bhaijaan is also a path breaking film which conveys the message of peace and love between India and Pakistan.
