Salman Khan and Prabhas have set another milestone with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali.
Superstars Salman Khan and Prabhashave lately been in the news for delivering two back to back magnum opus films respectively. Prabhas starrer Baahubaliwhich released on July 10 took box officeby a storm with the humongous business it did on the very day of its release. A week after its release, Bollywood witnessed the release of Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan which managed to set benchmarks in its own stride. Both the films witnessed power packed performances delivered by their lead actors Prabhas and Salman Khan.
The release of both these films marked a revolution experienced by Indian cinema. In addition to both the films performing par excellence at the box office, they both have managed to sustain their position on celluloid by crossing the 50 day mark. Baahubali andBajrangi Bhaijaan are the only two recent films that have played on the big screen for over 50 days.
About two decades back, the success of a film was gauged from the number of days it used to run in the theatres. Box office did matter back then too but a Silver Jubilee, Golden Jubilee, Platinum Jubilee and a 100 day run meant much more than just box office figures. In that terminology, both Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan had a silver jubilee run at the box office this year.
In today’s time, when films have a short shelf life as audiences constantly demand change, both these blockbusters have stayed glued to the theatres. More than 2 months since their releases, the films have managed to draw audiences to theatres. Both performers have solely carried their films on their respective shoulders and have managed to set milestones with the same.
