Baahubali: The Conclusion, which received rave reception from critics and audience, crossed the Rs 200 crore mark on Saturday. However, as per trade pundits,  Baahubali 2 has more than Rs 300 crore in 2 days and is marching towards Rs 400 crore.

Trade analyst Ramesh Bala took to Twitter to share the figures.

It must be noted that Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's PK is so far the highest grossing Indian film of all time and collected Rs 792 crore worldwide. However, considering the unprecedented craze it had among on the audience, Baahubali 2 is expected to rake in Rs 1000 crore at the box office.

Meanwhile, the film has been doing tremendous business in the overseas market as well. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote:

Last week, Baahubali 2 had fantastic response in advance booking sales. Popular booking site BookMyShow had reportedly sold a million tickets.

Made on a budget of Rs 250 crore, the film has already fetched enough moolah for the producers and reportedly raked in Rs 500 crore through its satellite and distribution rights. Baahubali 2 is released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi.

Baahubali: The Beginning ended with Katappa revealing himself as the killer of Amarendra Baahubali. And The Conclusion takes the story forward from where its predecessor ended.
