There is no denying the role of Karan Johar in making Baahubali: The Beginning a huge hit in Hindi. K Jo has changed the fate of a regional film into a global film by making it available to the larger section of audience. Thanks to his distribution and publicity strategy, the Hindi-dubbed film reaped in huge profits on par with the regular Bollywood films. The movie went onto be India’s top 3 biggest grossers and made Indian filmmakers, global filmmakers to turn towards regional films and sit, take notice of the content being generated down the south.
However, going by the latest reports, it’s heard that Karan is now still in contemplation mode about acquiring Baahubali: The Conclusion given its staggering price.
While the film sold of like hot cake in Telugu with exorbitant prices, K Jo is still not sure of betting big. Apparently, the producers of Baahubali are expecting bigger monies from Hindi considering the performance of the original. But K Jo seems to be linking it with his latest release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. K Jo may take Baahubali 2 provided his latest ADHM do well at the Box Office. If not, K Jo may gently opt out of Baahubali 2.
As of now, these are just speculations. Let’s wait till we hear from the horse’s mouth. Stay tuned.
