Baahubali 2 trailer: Leaked Malayalam version forces makers to release trailer before schedule
Mumbai - 16 Mar 2017 13:14 IST
The makers of Baahubali had planned a grand trailer launch for the upcoming epic Baahubali: The Conclusion. Unfortunately, their plan came to a cropper with director SS Rajamouli and distributor Dharma Productions being forced to release the trailer before its scheduled time of around 4 pm today.
The move was initiated after the Malayalam version of the trailer was leaked online, as reported by news website News18.com. The makers were left with no option but to officially release all the trailers — Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.
This is not the first time Baahubali has faced a leak. In September 2016, a few pictures from the film had made their way online.
Grand plans for the launch may have taken a hit, but the makers can take heart that the Baahubali 2 trailer has become a rage on social media.
In less than three hours since it was released, the Hindi and the original Telugu trailers have got over 430k views each on YouTube. The Tamil trailer has crossed over 160k views, while the leaked Malayalam trailer has so far got around 20K views. Collectively, the trailer of Baahubali: The Conclusion in all languages has already crossed over a million views.
Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty, the film is set for a theatrical release on 28 April.
The above pictures were allegedly clicked from the sets.
