Indian cinema's biggest blockbuster, the SS Rajamouli directed Magnum Opus Baahubali 2 The conclusion, after grossing more than 1700 crores in its initial run worldwide, after being released last year on April 28, in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi, and setting box office on fire everywhere was released recently in China.
After the success of Bollywood Biggies like Dangal, Bhajrangi Bhaijaan, Secret Superstar and Hindi Medium in China, with the last two being most profitable, surpassing their Indian collections itself, the expectations were High on Baahubali 2 to create records. After a huge delay, Baahubali 2 was released in China on May 4.
While on the very first day Baahubali collected $ 2.43 million at China box office, surpassing lifetime collection of Baahubali 1 in China, the second day saw a minimal rise to $ 2.94 Million, but despite being released in 7000 screens, with poor word of mouth and bad critical response, the day 3 saw collections dip to a meager $ 2.26 Milion, and it is expected that the whole theatrical run of Baahubali 2 in China will end soon, as Avengers infinity War is all set to release in a few weeks there.
With a collection of around 55 crores in China, Baahubali 2 has had the poorest response among Indian films released in recent times. This is because, the Chinese audience did not like the quality of visuals in Baahubali 2, as they've seen even more spectacular historical flicks and fantasy/ war based movies in the past.
