‘Baahubali’ has one month for promotions
Hyderabad: Generally for the accountants and commercial establishments, March 31 will be the financial year ending and a new financial year starts on April 1. However, for the Indians, especially the Telugus, the month is going to be the Bahubali month as SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Bahubali-2 (The Conclusion) is all set for release on April 28. Though the film is slated for release by the end of the month, the Bahubali team has plans to hold publicity hungama throughout the month.
If you move any Telugu film lover, he starts talking about Bahubali and the trailer or the audio launch/pre release function was held in such a way which is like a never before or never after mode. The expectations rose to sky high and no other director could meet such high expectations except Rajamouli. The entire film industry in India, be it Bollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood, Mollywood or Sandalwood, everyone is treating as if the film is theirs. For the first time, the film is expected to collect not less than Rs 1,000 crore or even higher.
Even the publicity of the film is also at that range. By the time the film is released, almost all the exams will be over and all the students would be free and not only in the Telugu states, but across the globe, the first week’s price range is going to be much higher. If sources are to be believed, the Bahubali-2 (The Conclusion) would cross the Bahubali (The Beginning) collection in less than three days. Moreover, there are no big film releases in the near future. So undoubtedly the film would remain the number 1 across India in the first week collections, the record which can’t be erased even by Rajamouli once again. After the release of the film, Rajamouli could be considered the top-most director of the entire Indian film industry.
