Baahubali Karnataka Rights Sold For 18 Cr?

Baahubali, literally meaning The One With Strong Arms in English, is laden with special effects and tells the fictional story of two warring brothers battling for control of an ancient Indian kingdom.

The opening part of the ambitious spectacle, Baahubali - The Beginning, is due for release on July 10, with the final instalment scheduled to hit screens next year.

The Karnataka distribution rights of the film Baahubali have been snapped up for a mind-boggling Rs 18 crore. This is the biggest distribution price ever paid in Karnataka for non-Kannada films. But it is for all the four language versions of the film; Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam. 

While the film is made in Telulgu and Tamil, it is being dubbed in Hindi and Malayalam. The distribution rights were taken by RS Productions of producers Kanakapura Srinivas and KP Srikanth.

The highest grossing non-Kannada film in Karnataka is SS Rajamouli's Maghadheera which reportedly made a business of nearly Rs 12 crore. 

It will be dubbed into Hindi and the producers are also considering releasing a shorter version for international audiences.
