Since years Bollywood has been remaking hit South films and that's not surprising considering that they also fare amazingly well at the box office here. The biggest example of this is Baahubali. Originally a Telugu film, it has been dubbed in various languages including Hindi. And today we all know what a stellar record the film holds at the box office. In Southern circuits - Tamil Nadu-Karnataka (TNK), Orissa and Nizam, all the major Hollywood films are dubbed in Tamil and Telugu. Similarly, even the latest Hollywood blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame, had been dubbed in Tamil as well as Telugu languages.
Endgame, majorly in dubbed version, had an outstanding run at all the above mentioned Southern circuits. The film earned Rs 37.28 crore in TNK and Rs 29.91 crore in Nizam standing at first position in both circuits. It earned Rs 3.72 crore in Orissa where it stood at fourth position. In these circuits the audience always prefers dubbed films rather than in Hindi or English languages.
