Baahubali has managed good 1st day collection at box office and that is mainly due to wide release film has got. Film has collected an approx 5-5.25 crore nett on Friday. Film is released in relatively wide screens considering it a dubbed film. However film occupancy is on lower side with around 30-35% for day one. But because of wide screens film has put up good numbers for day one. However film has shattered all opening record down south and has done outstanding business there.
Baahubali will now record decent opening weekend numbers as film initial word of mouth is good. In fact there are chances that film might show decent to good jump on Saturday and Sunday as far as Hindi version is concerned. This is something big for a dubbed film. With such start expect film to do 17-18+ crore nett in opening weekend and may be even close to 20 crore, which will be fantastic.
