“With Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, we are excited to continue our commitment to playing local-language blockbusters in India by offering IMAX fans this thrilling finale to the epic and highly successful Indian franchise from Arka Mediaworks and director S.S. Rajamouli,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and senior executive vice-president, IMAX Corp.
“A major factor for the wide appeal of the Baahubali films is the scale and immersive nature with which we designed and filmed them. So it is very exciting that Baahubali 2: The Conclusion will be released in the IMAX format, which best showcases this and gives the viewer a great experience,” added Rajamouli.
