Chennai: After initial woes in Tamil Nadu, S.S Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” finally released in the state.
Regular shows commenced from 10 a.m. in select theatres. Wider release across the state started from noon, an industry source told IANS.
The release was stalled on Friday as K Productions, the Tamil Nadu distributor of the film, reportedly owed Ark Media Works, producers of “Baahubali 2”, Rs 15 crore.
K Productions has since paid a certain amount to get the go ahead for Friday’s release.
The second part in the “Baahubali” franchise is releasing in nearly 650 screens in Tamil Nadu.
Made on a lavish budget, the film tracks the story of two warring brothers over the ownership of an ancient kingdom.
It stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan.
