Re-releasing hit films was very common from 70s to mid 90s. However, the trend has vanished in the last two decades. Baahubali is bringing it back with its massive re-release, If the ploy works, we can see the many more such films following the suite in future.
The Hindi version of Baahubali The Beginning grossed more than Rs 100 Cr in India. As part of the promotional strategy for the second part Baahubali The Conclusion, producer Anil Tadani and presenter Karan Johar have come up with this idea of re-releasing the first part in big way.
Surprising element is allotting 1000 screens for this re-release. As there are no major Bollywood releases this weekend, the multiplexes and single screens are looking for big movies. So, they have easily got 1000 theatres for this Rajamouli’s epic drama. This will be a huge opportunity for Baahubali fans to relive the epic beginning before the conclusion comes into theatres. Reportedly, advance booking is pretty solid for the first part. The epic film may create another box office record during its re-release.
