Baahubali 2, the conclusion of Baahubali 1 is going to hit the theatres on 28 April in India. It is not a serious matter of concern among the filmmakers or the investors of the movie whether it is going to meet the expectations or not as the movie has already raised more amount in excess then the basic investment.
It is really profitable even before the release. There was a huge investment in the making of the movie that is Rs. 250 crore. Rs. 500 crore is already earned by the first half of the movie. But Baahubali 2 is going to cross the threshold. The producer of the movie Baahubali 2 is Arka Mediaworks. By selling distribution across India, he has recovered Rs. 250 crore. And the business does not stay here. He has earned additional from overseas right sales and that counts up to Rs. 100 crore.
It is going to set the records as the movie is going to release in 6,500 theatres across India in 4 languages which are Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Tamil. This is just not it, the movie earned a Rs. 78 crore from satellite television rights sales. There is a plan that this movie will raise another Rs. 10 crore as there is a partnership between the Baahubali team and Graphic India. This partnership will take this movie beyond the screen and theatres into original graphic novels, merchandise, animations and video games.
Baahubali 2 has an impressive pre-release performance but all of us are seeing that the money it is making is more dominating on the performance. There are the expectations that the movie is going the get more than Rs.100 crore on the very first of its release. After considering everything about this movie, the sky is the limit of the success that this movie is going to get.
