S S Rajamouli's Baahubali - The Beginning becomes the first ever regional film dubbed in Hindi to make an entry to the 100 crore club in Bollywood.
Released on July 10, 2015, Baahubali continued to collect good money at the Box Office despite big competition in the second week in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The collections of the Hindi version are nothing but historic as it raked in 5 times more than the last highest grossing Hindi dubbed film, Robot which collected merely Rs 20 crore at the Box Office.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took Twitter to share the news:
