A month ago, ‘Kabali’ set the record in Kerala for a non-Malayalam film after its rights were acquired for Rs 7.5 Cr. Now, Baahubali 2 has comfortably crossed this mark after Global United movies, a noted film distribution company in Kerala, acquired the film’s rights by shelling out Rs 10.5 Cr, the highest for a non-Malayalam film.
Baahubali 2 made a mockery of Kabali record as the latter’s record did not last for even a month. Not just in Kerala but in almost every circuit except Tamil Nadu, Baahubali 2 is expected to beat Kabali pre-release business and set new benchmarks for other South Indian films.
The shooting of Baahubali 2 is currently underway at Ramoji Film City.
