The storm created by SS Rajamouli Bahubali 2: The Conclusion had taken the box office to its root. The movie has broken all the records that were created till the release of the movie. And with that being said, the movie is minting money, read, a lot of money.
The magnum opus by SS Rajamouli has set standards in the film industry, and it’s the director who is sailing across the success of the movie. But have you wondered, how much does the filmmaker has earned from the movie? Well, more than you possibly imagine.
If reports are to be believed, Rajamouli did not charge any fee but settled on a profit-sharing basis. Reportedly, he asked for one-third in the profits that have been made by both the films.
This means that Rajamouli would get a share from the profit of both movies. But, the first movie- Baahubali: The Beginning, did not rake in any profit. Though, Baahubali: The Beginning earned around Rs 600 crore, it did not register any profit. The budget of both the movies was around Rs 450 crore, with Rs 250 crore spent on Baahubali: The Conclusion. To put it simply, whatever the makers earned from the first instalment they invested in the second one.
But with the second one roaring at the Box Office, the makers don’t have any other investment as of now. Baahubali: The Conclusion was made on a budget of Rs 250 crore and it would be fair to consider that the movie has earned Rs 500 crore from the worldwide collections.
Now, the theatrical rights of the movie were reportedly sold for Rs 500 crore and the satellite rights fetched Rs 51 crore to the makers. Adding this, the amount the result comes as Rs 551 crore.
If we subtract the collections from the budget, the number comes to Rs 250 crore.
So, SS Rajamouli apparently made Rs 266 crore from this franchise. Woah! That is really a lot of money.
