SS Rajamouli's recent directorial 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' has been creating a stir at the box office ever since it has been released. The movie made a massive collection of Rs 121 crores on its day of release. The first day collections included the earning of all four languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.
Such a humongous response was well expected for 'Baahubali 2' given that the movie brought the answer to the cliff-hanging question of 'Why Kattappa killed Baahubali' from 'Baahubali: The Beginning'. Indeed, the monstrous first day collections has vanquished several records including that of Salman Khan's 'Sultan' and Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' which had collected Rs 36.54 crore and Rs 29.78 crore respectively.
But despite such a massive response, the Prabhas-starred couldn't beat the record of one Bollywood movie. We are talking about Shah Rukh Khan's 2014 release 'Happy New Year'.

Confused? Well, 'Baahubali 2' had minted a total of Rs 41 crore in Hindi on first day whereas the SRK-starrer had earned Rs 42.62 crore on it's day of release.
Yes! It's true.
Well, this will be indeed a little disappointing for all the 'Baahubali' fans as the movie is no less than a classic hit for the movie buffs. Interestingly, while 'Haapy New Year' made a life-time collection of Rs 204.83 crore, where as 'Baahubali 2', which continues to go strong at box office, has minted Rs 495 crores so far.
