“Bahubali – The Conclusion” has met with unprecedented success at box offices all over the world. The Malayalam version of the film is said to be the top grosser in the history of Malayalam Cinema. But there is another film too making the same claim.
Mohanlal, the Complete Actor, released his “Pulimurugan” earlier this year which went on to become a top performer at the Kerala box office. Even its dubbed version in Tamil did fairly well. At the time it was said that the film grossed Rs.100 crores in Kerala alone becoming the first Malayalam film ever to do so. However, the makers are yet to officially confirm this news.
The Malayalam version of “Bahubali – The Conclusion” was released in Kerala concomitant with its release in the rest of the world. Trade analysts reveal that the Malayalam version has collected a gross of Rs.60 crores and a net of Rs.48 crores. The distributors’ share collections stand at Rs.30 crores. In the absence of official figures for “Pulimurugan” these figures are considered to be the highest collections in the history of Malayalam Cinema. In any case they are certainly the highest collections for a dubbed film.
