SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion has been in the news continously for its stupendous success at the box office. Its upcoming China release date has also garnered attention since its India release 50 days ago. There was a lot of speculation about the film’s release date in the neighbouring country. 

While the date is still not out, trade analyst Ramesh Bala revealed the month of Baahubali 2's China release as September. The Chinese will finally have a look at the Prabhas and Rana Daggubati-starrer.

He disclosed the news on his Twitter page. He also mentioned that the team of Baahubali will be travelling to China to promote the film. He said, “#Baahubali2 will release in #China in Sep'17 in 4,000 Screens.. BO Target:  ¥300M ($44.1 Million).. Stars will go to #China for Promotions..” 

Bala also revealed that the film will be released in other countries as well. “Apart from #China, #Baahubali2 will also release in #Japan, #Korea and #Taiwan later this year..” he added. 

With Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal becoming an astounding blockbuster in China, all eyes are now on Baahubali 2’s business in the country. The Aamir Khan-starrer has so far reportedly made around $182 million in China. In fact, the film also became the fifth highest non-English hit in the world. 

It will be interesting to see if Rajamouli’s film proves to be a tough fight for Dangal. The team has its task cut out since the first film Baahubali: The Beginning didn’t succeed in China.
