In a survey conducted by Ormax Media over the month of November 2016, regular Bollywood theatre-goers were asked to pick their most-awaited film of 2017 from a list provided to them. A staggering 51% picked Baahubali’s second instalment. It is important to note that this research was conducted among Hindi film goers, and does not include those who watch films only in Telugu or other regional languages.
The findings are a resounding verdict in favour of Baahubali The Conclusion, affirming that the film has received mainstream status in the Hindi market, and not seen as a dubbed film anymore. 2.0’s first look released towards the end of this research, and it has quickly entered the Top 5 list in that short period. After Hollywood, is it South cinema’s turn to give Bollywood a hard run for its money?
