Ace director S S Rajamouli, a brand of his own, is all set to expand his foot prints to foreign soil s by releasing his magnum-opus Bahubali 2 in various foreign languages by dubbing the film in respective languages and rise the bar on Telugu cinema.
Never in the history of Telugu cinema, a film has created such much furor world over and producer Sobhu Yarlagadda is leaving no stone unturned to spin box office magic in countries like Germany, France, Japan and China in respective languages besides in English and planning to release in 2500 screens across the world to establish an earth-shattering box-office record.
Meanwhile, Tamil rights of film were a whopping for Rs 70-odd crores including satellite rights (Bahubali was sold for Rs 25 crore), so its going to rock Tamil Nadu and surely opened up gates for Telugu cinema in Kollywood in a big way.
“Tamil distributors used to buy star-studded Telugu films for Rs 50 to 60 laksh but Bahubali 1 and Bahubali 2, changed the way Telugu cinema is looked at by Tamil viewers,” says Francis, Tamil film distributor and theatre owner.
Summing up the unprecedented craze for a Telugu film , producer Prasanna Kumar adds “In India, even top Bollywood, Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada stars are avoiding a clash with Bahubali 2 on April 28 and deferring their movies, which has never happened before in the history of Telugu cinema, hat’s off Rajamouli and his team” he concludes.
