The satellite rights of Director S S Rajamouli’s “Baahubali: The Conclusion” (Bahubali 2) starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati has been sold to Zee Network for a whopping Rs.26 crore, said the film’s publicist.
In a tweet, he said: “satellite rights have been acquired by Zee Network for a whopping price of Rs 26C, which would surpass the record of “Baahubali.” However, it is not confirmed whether the source is for real or not.
Ever since the shocking leak of 8-minute climax war scene leak of director S S Rajamouli’s “Baahubali: The Conclusion” (Bahubali 2) starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati, the team is making utmost secrecy of the crucial post-production process though hundreds of people are working on it.
Though the shooting for Bahubali 2 is over, the leak of the film by a technician at Annapoorna Studios has left behind serious questions over how long can it keep the secrecy around the film’s storyline as the key to its success is suspense and curiosity.
The curiosity value is so high that if any leak over the country-wide question of “Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?” is out there, it dwindles the value of the film. “The producers and director SS Rajamouli are huddled together about the next move. All post-production has been halted until a method to prevent further damage is found,” said a source to Deccan Chronicle.
Bahubali publicist Mahesh S Koneru has denied that there is any delay in post-production work over the leak but confided that security has become more strict over the post-production process to avoid any more leak. He merely said, “Access has become more strict and more security measures are in place.”
It is unlikely that the storyline will be leaked as it was written by SS Rajamouli’s father KV Vijayendra Prasad and it is kept utmost secret during the entire shooting period of the first and second films. He was content that the plot wasn’t revealed though he was not sure that the incident would not be repeated.
“There are 250 technicians working on post-production. Anyone who feels like showing off to his friends can record and leak the footage. We can only appeal to the good sense of the people who are tempted to do such things,” Vijayendra Prasad told DC.
Otherwise, S.S. Rajamouli is content that the film has come off well. In a latest twitter message he said it was 25 years after that the VR technology is being used. “After 25 years in film industry venturing into VR for the first time. First shooting day of SWORD OF BAAHUBALI,” he said.
