Morning shows of S.S Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali 2: The
Conclusion were cancelled on Friday (28th April) due to financial
issues in Tamil Nadu, industry sources said.
"Tamil Nadu distributor K Productions owes Rs 15 crore to Arka
Mediworks, the makers of 'Baahubali 2'. Arka is yet to issue KDM
for the release of Telugu and Tamil versions of the film in the
state," a source told IANS.
A theatre owner, on the condition of anonymity, said the issue
is likely to be settled by the afternoon.
"Talks are being currently held to settle the deficit. Shows are
likely to open from noon," the theatre owner said.
The Hindi version, however, has released in Tamil Nadu.
"The Hindi version didn't have any issues because it's being
released nationwide by Anil Thadani," the source added.
Meanwhile, Baahubali 2 has released in other parts of the
country and has been received well.
The film stars Rana Daggubati, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty,
Tamannaah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan.
