The big news is here. Baahubali 2 is all set to hit the theatres in China this July. The film will be promoted and released on a large scale in the country. Currently, Aamir Khan’s Dangal is doing historic business in China as it has grossed more than $100 million and is still going strong. It has also become the highest grossing non-Hollywood film in China. The massive success of Dangal will surely benefit Bahubali 2.
The film will be distributed in China by E Stars. The producers of BB2 are expecting the film to beat Dangal in China.
This sets a new target for us. With Baahubali: The Conclusion we are now at $220 million worldwide, without China. Our target now is for China to give us the biggest lifetime score of all time for an Indian movie.
