The interest in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali (2015) has grown tremendously since its release. Now, it is taking the international events by storm. The film is one of the four films from India that will be shown at the annual BRICS summit. 

The screening of these films is an attempt to share cultures and ideas among nations at the summit. The annual diplomatic summit, BRICS, will host representatives and heads of state from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The event is scheduled to take place between 2 September and 6 September. 

The other three films to join Baahubali include Kannada film Thithi (2016), Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani (2015) and the Bengali feature film Cinemawalla (2015). 

Each country is expected to send in films from their own culture, and screen it at the event. 

This looks like another conquest for Baahubali's might.
