“Baahubali- the Beginning”, a much-anticipated Telugu movie directed by Rajamouli has hit the big screen on Friday July 10, 2015.
The movie has had an incredible response. The 4000-plus screen is a record for any South Indian film.
However, even this count seemed small when tickets started to get sold out in less than a day when advance booking had been made available.
Baahubali is believed to register a record collection at the global box office on its first day.
The film starring Prabhas, Tamannah, Rana Daggubati as well as Anushka Sharma is actually the first of two parts of the movie.
The movie has also been in the headlines often since its announcement. The promotional strategies employed have also been unique in the video and audio launch as well as trailers, teasers and poster launch.
“Baahubali” has smashed all box-office records in term of first day collections by collecting Rs 50 crores.!

Following the overwhelming response, the heads of the film arranged for the movie to be released in over 4000 screens globally.
In the international market, the movie had crossed the 1-million-dollar mark in the US Box office alone. This has become another new feat for Indian cinema.
#Baahubali is NOT TO BE MISSED. Today, you may call it a BOX-OFFICE BLOCKBUSTER. Tomorrow, it will be remembered as a CLASSIC.
