Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion, second part in the Baahubali series, is the biggest blockbuster of India. The magnum opus, released on April 28th 2017, has decimated each and every record at the Indian box-office. Even after almost 5 months of it’s release, audience are still in the euphoria created by the film. It is also heard that makers are planning to combine both the parts in a single movie and release it again on the big screen. Despite all these glory, Hurdles continue for the long pending China release of this epic.
After the film hit screens on April 28th, 2017 in India, makers planned to release the movie in China in July but that couldn’t materialized. They postponed the China release from July to September and even thought of flying to China to promote the film. However, neither the movie released nor they flew to China for promotions.
The latest news we hear is that makers have made their final decision to release the movie in China in December. But this decision could become their biggest mistake too because December month is already filled up with many Hollywood biggies and if Baahubali 2 releases in China in December, it will have to compete with these biggies at the Chinese box-office.
As of now, ‘Star Wars : The Last Jedi’, ‘The Greatest Showman’ and ‘Jumanji : Welcome To The Jungle’ are the three big-ticket Hollywood flicks that are scheduled to hit Chinese screens in December month. Now it will be interesting to see if Baahubali 2 manage to attract Chinese audience or becomes a failure just like the first part of Baahubali.
Baahubali 2 is directed by SS Rajamouli and it features Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah in the key roles. Arka Mediaworks have bankrolled this mega budget project which has music given by MM Keeravani.
