While the entire nation is gearing up to watch the first day, first show of SS Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, the fans in Chennai will have to wait a little longer to watch the movie.
The morning shows of ‘Baahubali 2’ were cancelled in Chennai due as the financial settlement between K Productions (distributors of ‘Baahubali 2’ in Tamil) and producers is yet to be settled.
Reportedly, the producers did not give clearance to the distributors to screen the film before 11 am. And therefore, no screening of ‘Baahubali 2’ will take place before 11 in the morning in Chennai.
A fan standing outside the theatre at 3 am said:
“I am here outside Rohini theatre from 3 am and it was so irresponsible of the theatre owners to sell tickets if the show rights were not there. There was a lathi charge and two people were taken into custody.”
Most of them who booked the early morning shows turned up at the theatres only to be informed that they won’t be able to see a show. One of them said:
“Online booking was done by many of us. They could have sent a message about the cancellation. Such a waste of time and also I have not yet got the refund.”
At the Rohini theatre in Koyambedu, the theatre officials had put up a notice in Tamil that read:
“Across the state of Tamil Nadu the release of the movie was not there and hence at 7:55, 8 and 8:15, the shows have been cancelled.”
With the morning shows cancelled, the fans who had already bought the tickets will have to wait for another few days to watch the movie.
