Baahubali 2: The Conclusion trailer to release on 16 March in 300 Telagana, AP theatres
The wait is over. Almost. The makers of SS Rajamouli's much-anticipated war epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion will unveil the theatrical trailer on 16 March.
Watch the trailer here.
One of the co-producers, Shobhu Yarlagadda, took to Twitter to post a picture of the U/A certificate given to the trailer of the film by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). India Today reports that the trailer will be screened in 250 to 300 cinema halls across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on 16 March.
The Indian Express reports that the Telugu trailer will be shown to the media between 9 am and 10 am on 16 March. Later, in the evening, the Hindi trailer will be launched between 5 pm and 6 pm in Mumbai, followed by its launch on YouTube.
While there were initial concerns that the theatre goers will click pictures of the 2 minute 20 second-long trailer and post it on social media. However, if the trailer will be released on YouTube on the same day, piracy will not be much of an issue.
Initially, it was reported that the trailer of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion would be attached with Rahul Dholakia's Raees that released on 25 January, owing to the same distributor of both the films, Anil Thadani who is also the husband of Hindi actor Raveena Tandon.
However, since that deal did not materialise, the trailer will now be released in cinema halls across the two Telugu-speaking states on 16 March. Hindustan Times reports that the audio launch of the film is also likely to take place by the end of this month.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubatti, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty and Sathyaraj. It will be released in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil simultaneously. Its Hindi rights have been acquired by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. It is slated to release on 28 April but will premiere on 27 April in the United Kingdom as part of the celebration of 70 years of the Indian Independence.
