Baahubali is still going strong all over the world collecting more than 230 crore rupees from its first five days and the Tamil version of the film is not an exception. Baahubali(Tamil) is setting box office on fire in Tamil Nadu and hence might hamper the first weekend collections of Maari.
Collecting a mammoth 23 crore rupees from Tamil Nadu alone, the first five days (Friday to Tuesday) collections of Baahubali in the state has already surpassed the two weeks collections of many recently released straight Tamil movies.
Not just in Tamil Nadu, but the Tamil version of SS Rajamouli's magnum opus is doing pretty well in other parts of the country as well. In Bangalore, the movie is still running to packed houses even on weekdays which is some achievement.
With Dhanush's Maari releasing this Friday (17th July), it will be interesting to see which movie comes out on top this weekend. Will Baahubali turn itself into a daunting hurdle for Maari or will Maari manage to escape the hurdle unscathed? The answers will be found soon.
