Re-releasing the highly successful films is likely to drive people into the cinema halls that suffered hugely during the lockdown period. According to the Unlock 5.0 guidelines released by the Ministry of Home Affairs, cinemas/ theatres/ multiplexes have been permitted to open with up to 50 percent of their seating capacity from 15 October. The same seating capacity has been allowed under Unlock 6.0 as well.
The Baahubali franchise, consisting of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, has cemented its position in the history of Indian cinema. Upon the release of SS Rajamouli's magnum opus in 2015, the entire country was abuzz with only one question: 'Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?'
The suspense-filled ending led to massive anticipation around the release of the second part of the franchise. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion managed to become one of the highest-grossing films of 2017 in India, along with making it big in foreign markets as well. The movies also brought their leading star, Prabhas to the limelight to a pan-Indian audience.
Earlier, to commemorate Prabhas' 41st birthday on 23 October, makers of the second instalment of the franchise had decided to re-release the film in theatres across the USA.
