Overseas Distribution company Great India Films has cracked a deal with Arka Media Works for the theatrical rights of ‘Bahubali 2: The Conclusion’ in North America for a whopping Rs 45 crores. The deal includes the rights of the Hindi, Tamil, Malyalam and Telugu versions.
The deal was confirmed by Great Indian Films on their official twitter handle, “We can now confirm that @greatindiafilms has partnered with @arkamediaworks to distribute Baahubali- 2 (Tel, Tam, Mal & Hindi) in North America,”. This is the highest for any Indian film till date.
It may be noted that many top distribution houses are vying to clinch the deal with the makers of Bahubali, as the first part fetched a profit of 55.7 crores against the buying price of 11 crores for BlueSky Cinemas.
While, the makers are gearing up for the humungous promotions of the period war film, our hero Prabhas has received a rare honour. His wax statue will be sharing space with global celebrities on a common platform at the famous Madame Tussauds museum in Bangkok. This indeed is a rare achievement for a South Indian actor.
If not a wax statue, Rana himself has sculpted into a monster with the help of his trainer Kunal Gir. He will be seen portraying a young and dynamic ‘Bhallaladeva’ in the second installment of the epic war film.
While their male counterparts are hogging the limelight for various reasons our leading lady Anushka will be seen in a full- fledged role and will be seen romancing Bahubali. Recently, it was rumoured that she is seeing a producer and soon marriage is predicted on the cards.
Tamanna will be seen in a miniscule role in the second part as much of the story is set in the flashback. Sadly, there won’t be any songs on her. The fans are surely to miss her seductive avatar but Rajamouli is an intelligent director and he will make up for Tamanna’s sexiness with Anushka’s oomph.
