‘Tubelight’ director Kabir Khan, one of the most successful directors in the Hindi film industry today, has said he is delighted with the box office performance of ‘Baahubali’. He congratulated the director of the film S.S Rajamouli, and said the ‘Baahubali’ franchise should not be looked at as ‘regional’ cinema.
“I really feel good whenever any film does well. We should not see ‘Baahubali’ as a regional film. That’s the triumph of ‘Baahubali’.. The team has successfully combined south and north market, and for that, hats off to S.S. Rajamouli. I think he made a brilliant effort,” Kabir said here on Thursday.
‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ has decimated box office records across the country. It has become the most watched film in India this century and will soon cross the 1000-crore mark globally.
The Hindi version alone is expected to surpass the lifetime business of Kabir Khan’s universal blockbuster ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
