The Baahubali films brought the entire world to a standstill with its sheer brilliance. The film franchise is now getting a re-release in theaters soon. Karan Johar who backed the films under his Dharma Productions banner revealed this via Twitter.
Starting this week on Friday, 6 November, the first film, Baahubali: The Beginning will release. Thereafter the next Friday, on 13 November, Baahubali 2: The conclusion will hit the theatres. Although both these films are only going to release in select states. The places where the government has allowed theatres to function will only witness the films re-release.
Johar posted the following tweet to inform the audience :
On October 15 the government had allowed theatres to reopen with only 50 percent operating capacity under the unlock 5.0 phase. Now under the unlock 6.0 phase, the capacity will remain at 50.
This will inject some flash of life into the theaters, who are struggling to run as people are not flocking to theatres due to COVID-19. New films are not releasing in the theatres and people’s skepticism is still high. With the release of the Baahubali films, the situation might improve.
The franchise which started with Baahubali: The Beginning in 2015 became a household name since the time of its release. People loved the film with both the films doing mammoth business at the box office. In 2017 Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released and became one of the highest-grossing Indian films ever. Baahubali films even dominated the foreign market and brought prominence to Indian cinema.
SS Rajamouli had directed the epic films which starred Prabhas and Rana Daggubati in leads. The entire cast and crew of the film became known faces in India, especially lead actor Prabhas. For the Pan-Indian audience, Prabhas became an icon.
Let’s see how the audience reacts to the film’s re-release.
