Baahubali (Hindi) has done well over its first weekend grossing around 19.50 crore nett. More than than the weekend total its the trend on Saturday and Sunday that indicates that the film has found appreciation in some Hindi markets despite being a dubbed film from South India.

The business was very good in Mumbai circuit, CP Berar and CI. The other circuits also picked but due to low start the overall collections were on lower side as compared to the above circuits
The film has done record breaking business in its Telugu format grossing around 65 crore nett apprx across India. The all India collections of the film in all languages are around 98-100 crore nett which is on par with collections of Happy New Year including its Tamil and Telugu format. It is behind Dhoom 3 which was over 100 crore nett including Tamil and Telugu formats.

But Hindi films can be compared against Hindi films in nett collections as release patterns are same, comparing with other languages it has to be gross as taxes differ for different languages and regional films have tax benefits in their local states. So in real terms which is gross collections, Baahubali has the fourth biggest opening weekend ever in India after Dhoom 3, Happy New Year and PK which is no mean feat for a regional film though the huge expenditure and release (on all formats) is on par if not more than any big budget Hindi film.
