It will open in India on a record-breaking 6,500 screens, including in Karnataka, where the film faced the possibility of an unofficial ban from the pro-Kannada groups over ‘Kattappa’ Sathyaraj’s comments made nine years ago.
About 2,000 pro-Kannada organisations threatened to stall the release of the film across the state if Sathyaraj refused to apologise for his anti-Kannada remarks during the Cauvery row that he made nine years ago. However, the crisis was averted after the actor tendered an apology. The advance booking of Baahubali 2 already begun in Karnataka on a strong note, especially in Bengaluru, where screens that offered tickets on online sites have sold almost all the tickets for the weekend. The scenario is very similar in Telugu states and Kerala as well. In these southern states, the shows start as early as 6 am, an indicator of the kind of craze the franchise has managed to create among the moviegoers.
