After Dangal, Baahubali to have a massive release in China
While Aamir Khan’s Dangal continues to do great business in China, another Indian movie is gearing up for a massive release in the country. The makers of Baahubali are eyeing to recreate the magic there.
The China release date of Baahubali 2 has not yet been confirmed but as per reports the movie will have a wide release in the country. Producer Shobu Yarlagadda, is quoted saying to a media group, “We are working on the technical process, so it might take a couple of more months. The work has been initiated and is in full swing.”
E-Star who distributed movies like Dangal, PK, and Baahubali: The Beginning, in China, are likely to release the sequel too. The first part- Baahubali: The Beginning was released in 6000 screens in the country but it could not create a big impact there. However, the makers are very optimistic this time around and have made it clear that they are looking to release the film with a proper strategy in China, Japan, Taiwan and the Latin American countries among others
Dangal has earned over Rs 1000 crores in China alone. It is only the 33rd film in Chinese cinema history to cross one Billion RMB, which in Indian currency amounts to about Rs 1000 crore. So that will certainly give hopes to the makers of Baahubali.
Meanwhile, Baahubali 2 is inching closer to the Rs 1700 crore mark. The Hindi version is an all-time number movie in Bollywood in the domestic market. It is the first Indian film to have collected Rs 500 crore in any Indian language in domestic market. Apart from this, the SS Rajamouli directorial has also become the first film to gross over Rs 300 crores in the twin Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
