Riyadh: ‘Baahubali 2- The Conclusion’ as expected, broke all record on the very first day of the screening. Fans welcomed the movie with housefuls across the gulf countries. It became the first non-Bollywood movie to get such a response in the gulf region. The movie is trending houseful since yesterday, reported by DC.
Not only the Indians but also Pakistan, and Bangladesh nationals lined up outside the cinema halls since Thursday night to get the movie tickets.

“This is historical and we have never witnessed something so big. Usually, films starring Shah Rukh Khan, Amir Khan or Salman Khan get around 50,000 advance booking for their high profile movies whereas for Baahubali it was crossed 1,20,000” said Ahmed Golchin, a local film distributor.
The film got released in four languages in five countries of the Gulf region. Tamil and Telugu version of the movie got the most number of screens. Whereas, Hindi version was counted as the least number of screens. The cast of the film Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and director S S Rajamouli promoted the film in Dubai last week.
