Yes, this might be true, Rajini fans might be against Baahubali, as the film had already crossed Rajinikanth movie Linga’s first day record.
Generally, Rajinikanth is known for his stupendous star power, and with that range of star value, his movies had continued to hold the first day collections record till date.
But this time, Rajini lost the battle as Baahubali conquered the country. As per the reports, Linga’s first day gross, combining all the versions, is Rs. 39 crores, whereas Baahubali Telugu version gross touches Rs. 40 crore mark.
Baahubali crosses Shahrukh record too
If that is the case with the south Indian movies, on the other side, Baahubali could even conquer the nationwide record in terms of first day collections. Till date, this record is in the name of Shahrukh Khan for his “Happy New Year” movie, which grossed Rs. 45 crores. But Baahubali could manage to gross Rs. 60 crores, when all the versions are taken into the account and thus stood in the number one position, overtaking two big superstars of the country.

If this same speed continues, Baahubali records might not be reachable to any other Indian movie in the near future.
