SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali: The Conclusion is on a record-breaking spree in Japan as the film recently completed 100 days at the box office.

Baahubali 2, which was released in 2017, broke all records to emerge the second highest grossing Indian film ever, behind Dangal.

Now, the film is back in the spotlight for its phenomenal run in Japan.

At a time, where Indian films rarely complete a month overseas, Baahubali 2 has proved to be a game changer by completing 100 days at the cinema halls in Japan.

According to a report in First Post, Baahubali 2 has emerged as the third highest grossing Indian film behind Rajinikanth’s Dancing Raja and Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots.

The film has collected Rs 8.5-crore ($1.3 mn) in Japan, which has further solidified its position among the highest grossing Indian films ever.

Baahubali 2 starring Prabhas was released in the month of January and opened to a positive response from the Japanese audiences.

With the film’s glorious success in Japan, Baahubali: The Conclusion has also become the third film to cross $50-mn mark at the box office worldwide. The other two being Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal and Secret Superstar.

Apparently, the success of the film in Japan is a good sign for Indian cinema as it means that the cinephilies there are more welcoming for Indian films than expected.

The top five highest grossing films in Japan are Dancing Raja ($1.6 mn), 3 Idiots ($1.48 mn), Baahubali 2 ($1.3 mn), English Vinglish ($1.2 mn) and Enthiran ($1 mn).

Directed by SS Rajamouli, Baahubali 2, was released on March 16, 2017 and earned over $262 mn at the box office worldwide.
