The first part Baahubali: The Beginning not only thrashed the records but stood as the highest grosser at that time with more than 600 crores worldwide. So we can imagine the range of profits bagged by the producers. On the contrary to these numbers, the presenter K Raghavendra Rao along with the producers Shobu and Prasad claim that they have actually ended up with losses. Being made with a budget of about 125 crores, this movie was sold out for very short margin such that the table profits are so less. They said that the buyers enjoyed the excess returns and they didn’t share any profit from any region. According to them, the Hindi buyers saw the excess profits than any other.
And the fact that the first part got released in Germany, China, and other places, the release and distribution costs are bared by producers which made their losses double.
