SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali: The Conclusion (Baahubali 2)” has already started making headlines. Satellite rights for Hindi version of Baahubali 2 have been sold to Sony Entertainment Television for a record Rs 51 crore
This is said to be the highest price of satellite rights for any Indian regional movie ever.
“This is also one of the highest prices paid for original Hindi films,” sources said.
The satellite rights of Baahubali: The Beginning (languages combined) was sold at Rs 45 crore to Star India.
There were also reports that the makers of the second instalment had demanded Rs 50 crore for its overseas distribution rights.
The sequel has raised expectations as the first part left on a questionable note- viz Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?
Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Satya Raj and Tamannah Bhatia-, Baahubali was a mega hit not just because of story line, but the fantastic execution.
Baahubali 2 is slated for release on April 28, 2017.
