Baahubali 2: The Conclusion to release in Japan on Dec 29!
SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali franchise holds a special place in Indian cinema history. Both the parts in the series were massive blockbusters and won global acclaim. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, released in April this year, went on to gross over Rs 1000 crores at the box office. The movie was released in four languages – Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Hindi – simultaneously.
After conquering markets like US, UK and other European countries, Baahubali 2 is now eyeing to own the Japanese box office. The movie is getting released in Japan after eight months of the original’s release. As per latest reports, the Japanese version is slated to release on December 29. The movie recently cleared its censor formalities and has been rated ‘G’, which is equivalent to ‘U’ certificate in our Indian censor system.
Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan and Naseer essayed pivotal characters in the action-epic saga. Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni produced the franchise under the banner of Arka Works. Reportedly, the rights for the Japanese version were acquired by a local distribution house for a huge amount.
Superstar Rajinikanth is the only Indian hero to create an impact at the Japanese box office. Baahubali’s first part, Baahubali: The Beginning, didn’t perform as per the trade expectations in Japan. It remains to be seen how the second and final part is going to received by audience there.
