Bollywood’s blockbuster Baahubali will be screened in Pakistan almost three years of its release, the organisers confirmed on Wednesday.
The S. S. Rajamouli’s epic has been selected for screening at the Pakistan International Film Festival (PIFF) in Karachi.
Rajamouli took to Twitter to share his excitement over the development, thanking the PIFF’s organisers.
Baahubali has given me opportunities to travel to a number of countries… The most exciting of them all is now, Pakistan. Thank you Pakistan international film festival, Karachi for the invite.
