‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ is undoubtedly the most anticipated film in Nepal besides Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ which are releasing in Eid and Christmas weekend respectively. SS Rajamouli directed historical drama has created thumping fan frenzy among audiences, thanks to the kind of cinematic experience its first part delivered to moviegoers.
Talking about its Nepal release, ‘Baahubali 2’ distribution rights has been bought by Sunil Manandhar of Sriram Balaji. It has been purchased at the whopping amount of 3 crore which is the third highest distribution rights price for a Hindi movie ever. Sunil Manandhar who had also bought Nepal distribution rights of its first part, recently signed the deal with Dharma Productions, the leading distributor of ‘Baahubali 2’ Hindi version.
When ‘Baahubali’ was released in Nepal, it had performed very well here and earned more than 1.5 crore gross. That time the distribution rights price was also low due to which it emerged a profit venture for all involved. But now, thanks to the huge buzz it has carried and a brand that it has become today, the scenario is different. ‘Baahubali 2’ being purchased at 3 crore, has also become quite a risky deal for distributors. With high price, the film needs to collect huge amount at Nepal box office which, despite of high expectations, is surely risky.
‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ starring Prabhash, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhatia, is all slated to release on April 28 all over.
Also, Here is the list of Hindi movies with highest distribution price in Nepal. Salman Khan and Aamir Khan rule when it comes to record breaking distribution price for their film. We haven’t included Shah Rukh Khan’s movies due to the unavailability of his film’s price.
1] Dangal – 4 crore
2] Sultan – 3.20 crore
3] Baahubali: The Conclusion – 3 crore
4] Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – 2.08 crore
5] Kick – 1.20 crore
6] Dhoom 3 – 1.10 crore
PS: ‘Fast & Furious 8’ was supposed to release on coming Friday, but now our source have confirmed that it’s not going to release in Nepal next week, too.
