The highest opening weekend collection by a Bollywood film so far is by Sultan (2016) at Rs 180 crore.

The Hindi version of Baahubali 2 respectively made Rs. 247 crores, Rs. 143.25 crores and Rs. 69.75 crores in the first three weeks at the theatres, reported Mr Adarsh. The movie has collected about Rs 1,227 crore in India and another Rs 275 crore overseas at the end of its three week theatrical run.

Meanwhile, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is eyeing $ 20 million at the U.S. box office. Here's a look at five new clubs that SS Rajamouli's film has started.

At Rs 320-325 crore, Baahubali 2 is now the highest opening Indian film, beating Bollywood blockbusters and its 2015 predecessor Baahubali: The Beginning by a huge margin.

The film, the follow-up to Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Beginning, has outperformed previous top-spot holders, the Aamir Khan films PK and Dangal, on its way to the 1,500-crore landmark.

Baahubali: The Conclusion, which recently became the first Indian move to earn Rs 1000 crore worldwide has achieved another milestone. This makes Baahubali 2 the sole member of this club. The worldwide MANIA continues!

In the wake of the film's success, the franchise is now set to become a television show which will be aired on Star Plus, according to the Indian Express.

The shooting for the Baahubali 2 television series will be done at the Ramouji Film City, Hyderabad and will be dubbed in many languages just like the film.
