Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has opened in a magnificent way in China and has earned over 15 crores on day 1. It was ranked at third postion at the box office on May 4, 2018 in mainland China.
Directed by S.S.Rajamaouli, this film was released in 51494 shows in China and has earned $ 2.41 million – 16.10 crores. Before releasing in China, Baahubali 2 has earned 1716 crores gross. After adding the first day collection in China, this magnum opus has collected 1732 crores worldwide.
This is the fourth highest first day earning for an Indian film in China. So far, Secret Superstar is the highest first day earning film in China with $ 6.74 million – 45.03 crores collection. Baahubali: The Beginning has earned only $ 1.18 million – 7.89 crores lifetime in China in 2016 and the Baahubali second part has already broken its predecessor record in 1 day.
Baahubali 2 hasn’t been promoted well in China unlike Dangal and Secret Superstar, which was promoted heavily. This will also lead to the lower collections of Baahubali 2 in China. The main competitor for Baahubali 2 in China is Avengers: Infinity War, which will release on May 11, 2018.
Altogether, Baahubali 2 journey in China is very much dependent on Avengers: Infinity War. If the latter performs well, that Baahubali 2 will not able to cross 100 crores at all.
