Baahubali team is rubbing their head for the film doing terribly bad in China. The film has expected to draw huge collections like it did here domestically with the Bollywood movies as the inspiration. But the opposite has happened and it looks very difficult for the film to stand firm in China.
Well, that could be because these heroic and periodic films are not new to the China audience where they have seen better. And yet, another director is getting ready to check his luck in the country. Krish’s Manikarnika starring Kangana in the titular role is being made preparations for a release in China.
With Rajamouly lost the battle there, will Krish be able to win it? Manikarnika too is a periodic drama with war sequences, except for it is a biopic. Will Krish win Chinese audience with Queen Jhansi’s story, unlike Rajamouli? We will have to see.
