S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has created a stir at a box office even before its release. In The United States, the film has already earned more than $3 million from pre-sales of tickets.
According to distributor Great India Films,
We have passed $3 million in pre-sales and are adding almost $100,000 to the total every hour. This is the highest for an Indian film in advance ticket sales.
On the other hand, the team of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has cancelled the film’s premier as a mark of respect for veteran Bollywood actor-politician, who died on Thursday.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved, the legendary Vinod Khanna. The demise has come as a huge shock to all of us. As a mark of respect for our dearly departed, the premiere event of ‘Baahubali : The Conclusion’ is now cancelled. Love and remembrance, Karan Johar, SS Rajamouli and the entire team of Baahubali.
