SS Rajamouli's Baahubali (Hindi) ends its week one by collecting a monstrous amount of money at the Box Office -- a whopping Rs. 46.77 crore. However, the Hindi version of the film is likely to be affected by the Bajrangi Bhaijaan wave across the country.
Baahubali - The 'biggest motion picture of India' got a multi-lingual release across the country. The film shattered records in all the languages it was released in -- Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam -- and went on to create history at the Box Office. Prior to the release of the film, a Rs 250 crore recovery (production cost) seemed to be difficult for the two part series, however, the same seems hassle free now.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted these collections on Twitter:

The Hindi version of the film which released on July 10, collected over Rs 45 crore at the Box Office in its first week, thus, making it a huge record. The film is the highest grossing Hindi dubbed regional film beating the record of Rajinikanth's Robot which has its lifetime collection of Rs 17 crore.
The film is likely to end its lifetime run at Rs 55 crore, as Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan has taken over major screens in the country. Looking at the way Baahubali has trended at the Box Office, the film would have surpassed Rs 75 crore, had there not been Bajrangi Bhaijaan waiting around the corner.
