Baahubali 2 is breaking records before its release!
We all know how Baahubali: The beginning has achieved the status of being the most loved film and after 2 years, the makers have come back with a bang, literally! And, the sparkler is already breaking records. Here's a low-down of how the film is faring before its release:
Trailer trends on Youtube
After the first ended, people were left gasping at the theatre wondering for more. And now, the makers are back with a production twice as big as the prequel. The trailer itself has crossed the 65 million mark, out of which the largest was in the Telegu version. The Hindi dubbed trailer itself crossed the 25 million mark, which is one of the many milestones for the legendary film.
One of the longest trailers ever!
Coming to the trailer itself, the clip which showed us a glimpse into the upcoming film, was one of the longest trailers in Bollywood. Speaking to a leading daily, the producer Shobhu Yarlagadda said, “The trailer became a runaway success due to its grand scale, emotional connect and action scenes. After 17 cuts, we got it perfect as the 2-minute trailer encompasses Rajamouli’s story. No other Indian film trailer has performed so well. I think the previous best was Dangal.”
Profits before its release!
People in the country are dying to see the sequel and the box office moguls expect the movie to perform unconditionally well. And, in some good news for the team, the sequel has already reported a huge profit even before its release. Imagine hearing that! Including the overseas distribution, satellite rights and promotions, the film is expected to be a big budget grosser at the box office.
The TV rights have been once again sold to Sony Television for the Hindi medium and in the south; it has been sold to STAR networks. Although, the digital rights are still being negotiated, this is one of the biggest moolah ever raked in by a film! And, the producer is absolutely happy. He says, “Yes, we have already made profits before the release from Baahubali 2. We are confident that the film will be another blockbuster and our right holders will make profits,"
Highest screen allotment!
Speaking about the theatres, the film will create a landmark in cinema watching with over 6500 screens expected to screen the film, which is one of the highest ever allotted to a film! Seems like S.S. Rajamouli is planning to leave the Khan camp behind! The director also confirmed that the movie will be releasing in IMAX format which will enhance the hugeness of the film.
