With a total collection of ₹3.84 crore from its second week (July 13th to 19th) in Chennai, Baahubali is taking Tamil Nadu box office by storm and the way it is currently going, theatre owners are in no mood to reduce the number of shows drastically even after the release of Dhanush's Maari.
From its first 10 days, the Tamil version alone has accumulated 18 crore rupees from all over the world. The total collections from all the languages have crossed the 300 crore mark making Baahubali the first South Indian flick to achieve this incredible feat.
In the state of Karnataka, Baahubali is all set to touch 40 crore rupees, such is the movie's domination in every nook and corner of India, let alone Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu.
It has also managed to surpass the lifetime collections of Rajinikanth's Enthiran in just 10 days which is an achievement in itself. Enthiran had collected ₹283 crore from across the globe.
In the United States, the Tamil version alone has grossed $522K which amounts to a whopping 3.3 crore rupees. The Telugu version is said to have collected $6.11 million, which is almost monstrous like for a non-Hindi Indian movie.

Total 11 Days Collection
By the end of its eleventh day(20th of July), the total gross of the movie from all its versions is said to be around ₹335 crore. It is estimated that the movie might approach the 400 crore mark by the end of this week.
12th Day Estimation
The 12th day collection alone is estimated to be more than 15 crore rupees. The numbers suggests that Baahubali is still going strong not only in Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu but all over the world.
Baahubali: The Conclusion
If the first part was named Baahubali: The Beginning, the second part has been named Baahubali: The Conclusion. With 40 percent of the shoot already completed, the remaining portions will be canned from September.
No More Than 30 Mins
Prabhas has revealed that his character Shiva (Shivudu) will appear no more than 30 minutes in the second and final part. This indicates that Anushka will have more screen space than Tamannaah in the second part.
Baahubali: The Conclusion might hit the screens before the end of 2016 or latest by early 2017. The entire team will be under pressure to deliver something extravagant after the gargantuan success they tasted from the movie's first part.
Box Office Success
It has to be seen if the second part can collect more than its predecessor. If it does, then Baahubali could end up becoming the most successful franchisee when it comes to Indian cinema.
