Baadshah is living up to its name and turning out to be a Baadshah in breaking pre-release records. Junior NTR and Srinu Vaitla's stylish and comedy entertainer is creating history overseas. Great India Films, which has bought the overseas rights of the film, has planned to release it in 210+ screen in 10 foreign countries. The movie is set to break the record of Mahesh Babu's Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC), Ram Charan's Naayak and Prabhas' Mirchi.
Baadshah will have a record breaking release in about 120 screens in USA, 11 screens in Canada, 12 screens in Australia, 40 screens in UK/Europe, Middle East 25+ locations, rest of the world 5+ (Tokyo, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Singapore). Total of about 210 centers (could be more by this weekend). This is a biggest release by a huge margin and no other Telugu movie is expected to break this in near future.
Some premiere shows of Baadshah will be held in Carmike BigD and Cinemark XD locations on April 4. This will be a must see experience for all movie lovers on the huge wall to wall, roof to floor screens with state of the art sound effects i.e., 22,000 Watts sound system.
