Why Baahubali Bombed in China?
SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus, Baahubali, though fared mightily India and US, the movie stood as disaster in Europe and China. Having set a target of $20M to beat Aamir Khan ‘PK’s $19.4M collections, Baahubali’s makers ensured the movie’s Chinese version released in record number of centers. With their dismay, the movie ended up accumulating below $1M in the country.
Analysts say, new movies of Jackie Chan and Jet Li were responsible for ‘Baahubali’s failure. Jackie Chan’s ‘Skiptrace’ and Jet Li’s ‘League’ got released recently and stood as big hits at China box office. Had ‘Baahubali’ got focused with more heroic acts rather visuals, the movie would have run well irrespective of other big films,” reckoned a few more analysts.
Currently, ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ is being shot in a rapid pace. Young Rebel Star Prabhas, Rana, Anushka and Tamannah have played lead roles of this fantasy entertainer. Keeravani is composing the music of the film. Arka Media is the production house.
