Rana Daggubati, who played Bhallaladeva, the evil cousin of Baahubali, should be credited with making the film a success in Hindi
New Delhi: At last count, S.S. Rajamouli’s blockbuster war epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion had netted Rs1,000 crore across all languages in India alone, a figure as staggering as the success story of the film. At Rs490 crore, however, the dubbed Hindi version of the film remained far ahead of others, including the original Telugu version. Released across 6,000 screens nationwide, the film broke the record for any big-ticket Bollywood film for which the highest screen count is typically 4,500-5,000. And while he may currently be Indian cinema’s most hated character as Bhallaladeva, the evil cousin of Baahubali, Rana Daggubati should be credited with making the film a success in Hindi.
