Surprisingly, the film has embarked on a flying start at the Chinese box office.

Baahubali earned $1.18 mn in China, whereas Baahubali 2 has earned $2.43mn (Rs 16.24-crore) on its opening day in the neighbouring country. On day one, the film has surpassed its prequel Baahubali: The Beginning. Its two-day collection was Rs 34.97 crore, which was marginally better than Baahubali 2.

However, it is to be noted that the epic drama has not fared better than Aamir Khan's Secret Superstar and Irrfan Khan's Hindi Medium. Hindi Medium had collected $3.39 million and Bajrangi Bhaijaan had collected $2.8 million in the past.

You all should know that the movie is released more than 18,000 screens and it became the third highest opener in China for Indian films.

One must also note that Aamir Khan's Dangal opened after Guardians of Galaxy had already had its run at the Chinese box office.
