Salman Khan and Aamir Khan are certainly two of the biggest box-office giants, no questions asked. Their films, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal , rewrote history with their commercial success, by raking in 320 and 386 crores at the ticket windows respectively. When we all thought no film would be able to surpass such mammoth collections, came Prabhas’ Bahubali 2: The Conclusion, the next chapter of Bahubali: The Beginning.
This once-in-a-lifetime cinematic experience shattered every possible record in sight and ended its lifetime run at a jaw-dropping 511 crores. Now, it shall be very difficult for both Salman and Aamir to go beyond this giant war drama in India. But the same cannot be said about them in China, where the two Khans have established a massive fan-base for themselves, so much so that Bahubali 2: The Conclusion has paled in comparison in the territory. And the arrival of Avengers: Infinity War on the 11th of May is further going to dent its box-office prospects.
This S.S Rajamouli directorial earned over 52.12 crores in its opening weekend, which is far behind Secret Superstar, Hindi Medium, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal. So if not in India, at least the Khans have overpowered Bahubali in China.
