This will be the biggest release ever for an Indian film and Baahubali happens to be the first Telugu film to even have a release in China. Since last year, E Star Films has been planning on releasing the film. However, due to unavailability of suitable dates, they had to delay the release.

The makers are confident about the box-office prospects of Baahubali, given how it has performed at the ticket window worldwide since its release. The film has already been sold to over 30 international territories, including Latin America and Japan. Throughout this year, the film, which has already raked in over Rs 750 Crore so far, is expected to hit screens in different parts of the world.

Meanwhile, the regular shooting of the second part of the film is progressing at breakneck speed and the makers are confident of releasing the film by the end of 2016 or early 2017. With a few new additions to its cast, Baahubali: The Conclusion has attracted a great deal of attention and has piqued the curiosity of its large fan base.
