Baahubali 2 is gearing up for grand release on April 28th. North America rights have been sold for Rs.40 Cr on Minimum Guarantee basis for Telugu, Tamil and Malayam version theatrical rights. Hindi will be released on 10% commission basis on behalf of Producers. As per the latest news so far North America distributor has paid only Rs.18 Cr and still need to pay another Rs.22 Cr. Local exhibitors were interested to buy but due to extremely high prices not many local exhibitors are coming up to buy. So far hardly 20 to 25% business was done in USA. All major locations were still not sold.
USA Distributor need to take 75 to 80% risk. As the release is hardly less than two week all the payments need to be settled at least a week before which is this week only. As the amounts are being huge we must wait and see how all the payments will be made in a week time?
Let’s hope it will have a smooth USA release. Stay tuned for more overseas release updates.
