SS Rajamouli's magnum opus "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" has shattered all box office records becoming the first Indian film to make Rs 1000 crores (Rs10 billion) in India and overseas, trade analyst Ramesh Bala shared on Twitter.
The SS Rajamouli-directed film was also the first to cross the 100-crore milestone in USA, where it released on April 27, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Baahubali 2", which stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah, has been on a record-breaking spree ever since it opened in theaters across India and the world on April 28.
The film's Hindi version became the first Bollywood film to make the fastest 300 crores (Rs 3 billion) in a record 10 days, beating the likes of "Dangal" (2016), "Sultan" (2016), "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" (2015) and "PK" (2014).
All versions of the film grossed more than Rs 500 crore (Rs 5 billion) worldwide in just three days, the first Indian film to achieve the feat.
It became the highest grossing Indian film ever with a worldwide collection of Rs 900 crore (Rs 9 billion) in all languages in just seven days, surpassing "PK"'s worldwide gross collection of Rs 792 crores.
