The first ever South Indian movie to set Bollywood ablaze and set high records internationally is all set to hit the theatres on April 28. We know, the wait has been long, and it still continues, but to make it even more exciting, here are some of the little-known facts about the movie that you must look forward to.
The climax scene of Bahubali 2 alone costs Rs. 30 crore, almost double the amount of the first chapter's climax shoot.

Yes, S.S. Rajamouli has himself confirmed that there's going to be another Bahubali movie, and as you may have expected, he hasn't spilled any details on the same.
" Looks Like I created more confusion instead of giving clarity. apologies. Baahubali-3 is on cards ... But the story that's written for the Two parts will not be dragged for the sake of it.

While many people described Bahubali as a perfect film, according to cinematographer KK Senthil Kumar there were several VFX errors. The cinematographer went on say that he was disappointed because there were major issues with the CGI (Computer Graphics Image) and added that there were rectifying the problems in the second part.

The movie, as its name suggests, is so grand that the TV rights have been sold before its release to Sony TV for a whopping Rs. 51 crores, reportedly.
Prabhas didn't take up any other film for four years
Looks like the cast and the crew of the movie already knew that the movie is going to change the way people look at South Indian cinema forever, and perhaps that is why, Prabhas, one of the top names in Tollywood, didn't fear committing himself to it for fours years.
Yes, the actor didn't sign any other movie since the release of the first installment and instead, concentrated on Bahubali 2 alone for this long period. In fact, his family and friends were somewhat against his decision and had also warned him about the huge risk he was taking. But in the end, it seemed it was all worth it.
The international version of the movie will be edited by The Incredible Hulk editor Vincent Tabaillon.
Touted to be the most expensive movie, the movie will have a slightly different international version, which will be edited by Vincent Tabaillon, who is popular for his works in movies like The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans, Taken 2 and Now You See Me among others.
Prabhas had to put on 30 kg to weigh 150 kg in Bahubali 2
We have seen Salman Khan and Aamir Khan gain and lose weight massively in the recent past for their films Sultan and Dangal respectively, but what Prabhas did for Bahubali is something that nobody would have ever imagined.
For the second part of the movie, Prabhas weighed 150 kg, which is 30 kg more than what he weighed in the first part. He hired two dieticians and a trainer for the same. What's more? The makers of the movie also shipped gym equipments worth Rs. 1.5 crore at his place. So, he had a personal gym at home.
Bahubali 2 is close to set yet another record of receiving the highest ever advance booking on BookMyShow, and breaking the record that Dangal holds as of now.
Meanwhile, for the first quarter of current financial year, the Box Office is pegging its hopes from the most awaited film 'Bahubali 2: The Conclusion'.
Meanwhile, ticket prices moved higher in the last quarter of financial year 2016-17. PVR raised average ticket price by 5-6 per cent on a year-on-year basis on the back of good content and movies like 'Kaabil' and the 'Ghazi Attack' which picked up in the second week aided by strong content, according to Edelweiss.
" Bahubali 2: The Conclusion, will release on April 28, 2017. Earlier in Q2FY16, Bahubali: The Beginning rocked the box office with Rs. 600 crore in collections worldwide. Stars spangled movies like Sarkar 3 (Amitabh Bachchan) and Tubelight (Salman Khan) are anticipated to do well," domestic brokerage Edelweiss said, adding: "Further, a strong English movie line up may also aid box office collection in Q1FY18. It is pertinent to note here that the base is also strong with releases like Fan, Baaghi and Housefull 3."
It also said that the Hollywood movies 'Kong: Skull Island', 'Logan' and 'Beauty and the Beast' too did well in terms of box office collections. "All this augurs well for movie exhibitors," Edeleweiss added. "Huge scale and screen additions place PVR and Inox in a sweet spot to capture higher share of box office pie. During first nine months of FY17 PVR added 19 screens while Inox added 26 screens."
Bucking the trend seen in the past few years, the last quarter of financial year 2016-17 turned out to be a good one for the box office. The Q4 of 2016-17, which ended on March 31, 2017, proved to be one of the best January-March periods in past many years with box office collections crossing the Rs. 100-crore plus mark in some cases, riding high on good releases like 'Raees', 'Kaabil', 'Jolly LLB 2' and 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania', according to a research report by Edelweiss. The fourth quarter of a financial year is generally considered a seasonally weak quarter for multiplexes in India, due to school exams and delayed release of promising content. for more information about bahubali 2 movie please visit this site http://www.bahubali2collection.net/
