One of 2015’s biggest Indian blockbusters, SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, is set to release in China in May. It will release in over 6,000 screens via E Star Films, the biggest for an Indian film after Aamir Khan’s PK.
“This will be the biggest ever release for an Indian film in China, superseding PK, which released in 5,000 screens. The makers had planned to release the film this month, however, it had to be postponed due to unavailability of suitable dates,” said a source from the production team.
The film has already been sold to over 30 international territories, including Latin America and Japan. Presently, the shooting of the second part of the film is under way. The crew finished the second schedule of its shoot in Kerala recently. There is still 60% of the film left to be completed. Baahubali: The Conclusion is expected to hit the screens later this year or early next year.
