Overcoming a series of controversies over the leaked sound clips, posters and many more, the makers of Baahubali are all set to launch the audio of the movie on June 13 in Tirupati at 5 p.m., today.
Around 50,000 fans are expected to be present during the audio launch of the movie.
"The audio launch will take place at Sri Venkateswara University. Arrangements are being made and security will be beefed up. It's not yet clearly known who will be chief guest of the function," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
The film has been in the limelight since last four years after the movie went into production. SS Rajamouli's dream project is being estimated to be the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema till date.
The movie is produced under Arka Productions and has also partnered with Karan Johar's Dharma Productions for its release in Hindi language. It will originally be released in Telugu and Tamil, while its dubbed versions will be released in Hindi, English and French.
Baahubali is all set to hit the silver screens across the world on July 10.
The movie's release date was postponed twice, initially it was scheduled to release in 2014 but due to VFX sound design's technical errors it was postponed to the later dates.
The movie had stepped in various controversies ever since its first look was released.
“Misleading Title” a Religious Controversy
The makers of the movie felt the heat of the religious controversies after the producers received a legal notice from Bhatta Kalakar Soudha Swamiji Matt, a Jain temple in Karnataka.
Initially the makers were blamed for hurting religious sentiments of the Jains as the name Baahubali resembled to a Jain Monk, Mahaveer Jain, who stood for the peace and sacrifice.
The makers were blamed for allegedly showing violence and war in the movie. The member of the Matt also asked to stop the production of the movie if it was related to Gomatheswara (also known as Bahubali, the founder of Jainism).
However, the makers of the movie later clarified that the story had nothing to do with Jainism and is a work of fiction. The makers also said the fictional term “Baahubali” referred to the enormous power of the protagonist of the story.
Caste Controversy Over a Leaked Video
Since the movie's shooting started, the makers had to deal with the problem of leaked videos which drove SS Rajamauli's dream project into many controversies.
The makers found themselves in yet another controversy after a 13-minute video was leaked out in February, 2015, after a group of people from a backward class filed a complaint with Central Crime Station in Hyderabad over the alleged use of impious language.
After the film's VFX sound clips were leaked, some Mala Community members (a scheduled caste community) came out with the allegation that the language used in the clip was profane.
Poster Controversy of the Movie
After the first poster of the movie was released the makers of the film found themselves in another controversy as the movie's poster resembled to a 1998 released Hollywood movie, “Simon Brich”.
