The anticipation around the release of Baahubali 2, following the phenomenal success of Baahubali: The Beginning, which emerged as one of Indiaâ€™s biggest grossers, has reached new heights. Even before the second installment in the franchise went on the floors, buyers were eager to snap up the theatrical rights of the film.
If sources are anything to go by, Sri Green Productions has bagged the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of the film. Sources claim the theatrical rights have been bagged for an undisclosed amount, which is more than the films of some leading Kollywood stars. But, an official confirmation on the same is awaited.
Slated to hit the screens during the summer of 2017, the film is on the verge of completion and it has already been sold in several areas. The overseas rights have been reportedly acquired for over Rs 100 crore while multiple parties are at loggerheads to bag the theatrical rights in Andhra and Telangana. The rights of the Hindi dubbed version have already been bought by Karan Joharâ€™s Dharma Productions as part of the deal they signed while purchasing the first part.
Baahubali 2 features more or less the same cast from the first part, except for a few actors who have been roped in to essay pivotal roles.
