Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali starring Prabhas,Rana,Tamannaah, Anushka created a sensation across the world. It not only elevated the standard of Indian cinema at the international level but also became the highest grossing film in the history of Indian cinema. The film collected a whopping Rs 1000crs and till now no Indian film broke that record.
In the midst of all this, Big B Amitabh Bachchan came with a shocker about Baahubali 2. Speaking about his blockbuster film Amar Akbar Anthony, starring himself, Vinod Khanna and Rishi Kapoor, he said the film during that time collected Rs 7crs 25 lakhs and if converted to the current situation, it would have been way ahead of Baahubali 2 (Baahubali-The Conclusion).
He posted “SHWETA and Abhishek visit me on the set of Amar Akbar Anthony .. shooting the song ‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ .. at Holiday Inn Ball Room .. this pic on the beachfront ..
43 YEARS of AAA , today .. !!!
When Man ji came to narrate the idea to me .. and told me the Title .. I thought he had lost it .. at a time in the 70’s when film titles revolved around Behen Bhabhi and Beti , this one was so out of place .. BUT ..
It is reported that it did a business of 7.25 cr at that time .. inflation-adjusted it crosses collections of Bahubali 2 .. say the sayers who do calculations But the fact is it did massive business .. did 25 weeks in 25 theatres in Mumbai alone .. or so they say ..
Doesn’t happen now … gone are those days !! “
It is known that ever since a non-Bollywood film Baahubali The Conclusion broke all records, the pride of Bollywood took a beating and the makers tried to deride the film’s achievement or come with some shocking claims. Till now Bollywood makers’ attempts to break Baahubali records turned out to be a disaster of the first kind.
