Finally, after several months long dilly-dallying, the distributors of Baahubali The Conclusion's Chinese version have released the movie yesterday. The film released in more than 7,000 screens across China.
Thanks to such a huge release, Baahubali 2 collected more than USD 2.85 million on day 1. Baahubali 2 has already surpassed Baahubali The Beginning's lifetime China collections (USD 1.3M) in just 1 day. The part one of the dual part franchise was a flop in China when it released a couple of years ago.
However, despite a strong start, Baahubali 2 didn't receive a unanimous positive response from the Chinese movie lovers, and this is causing a huge concern. Too much of melodrama in the movie seems to have not gone well with the Chinese movie buffs.
On the other hand, Baahubali 2 has broken the previous day 1 records set by Bollywood flicks Dangal and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which collected USD 2.49M and USD 2.20M respectively in China. But it remains to be seen if Baahubali 2 will manage to cross Bajrangi Bhaijaan's humongous lifetime China collections Â¥285M in its full run.
