Its been two weeks since Baahubali released. The mammoth film is not slowing down and theatre owners who have been waiting for box office success since the year started are not in any mood to allocate screens to new films. Multiplexes have maintained their Baahubali screen count while single screen owners are hesitant of screening new films.
This Friday five Tamil movies are releasing. Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Saravanan Irukka Bayamaen, Lens, Yeidhavan, Marmakadu and Mangalapuram. In Telugu Sharwanand’s Radha is braving Baahubali. Hindi films releasing are Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu. Two English films are also releasing Alien Covenant and King Arthur Legend Of The Sword.
Baahubali has crossed the lifetime earning of Dangal(385+) and is heading into a strong third week. With estimated revenue pegged at 1000 crores+ it will take any other film a long time to beat its record.
