Telugu blockbuster ‘Baahubali’ will soon be paving its way into the theaters in Japan after the deal inked with Japanese distributors Twin Co. The film’s rights were sold in China in September and now its producer Shobu Yarlagadda has closed the deal with Japanese distributors. Details of the deal’s amount or number of screenings have yet not been revealed. However it is certain that the team is planning on taking the film worldwide before its sequel releases.
‘Baahubali’ has proved to be a blockbuster hit shattering records since its release. Producer Shobu Yarlagadda will soon be approaching Latin America, Germany and European territories shortly to close the deals there as well. While China has opened its arms and welcomed Bollywood films like ‘PK’, Japan is slowly following its footsteps.
After the hugely successful run in India, ‘Baahubali – The Beginning’ is now all set to wow audiences worldwide. The company which previously handled the release of ‘PK’ in China, had officially acquired the rights to the film and intends to release the film in over 5000 screens across mainland China. S.S. Rajamouli’s periodical drama stands as the highest grossing film in the history of Indian cinema. After shattering all records in India, Baahubali is all set to charm audiences in China as well as Japan.
After having its world television premiere on Malayalam channel Manorama, the film is all set to have its Telugu and Hindi premiere on October 25. Director S.S. Rajamouli is currently gearing up with the pre production of the second half of the film. ‘Baahubali’s’ sequel is expected to release somewhere around June or July 2016. We hope the film does well in Japan as well!
Star cast of the film boasted of a very impressive lineup including actors Prabhas and Rana Daggubati who were seen playing the role of Baahubali and Bhallala Deva. Both the actors have undergone immense changes to fit into the characters’ shoes as we saw from the film’s first half. Baahubali will also saw actors Anushka Shetty as Devasena, Tamannaah as Avantika, Sudeep as Aslam Khan, Sathyaraj as Kattappa, Nassar as Bijjala Deva, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami and Prabhakar as Kalakeya amongst other cast of the film.
