But the movie's release has landed in trouble in Tamil Nadu as a film distributor has approached Madras high court for a stay on the films release due to unpaid dues Rs 1.18 crore. He sought stay on distribution, exhibition and release of Bahubali 2 in any form anywhere in Tamil Nadu without settling the dues as agreed upon.
On the other hand, in Karnataka some politicians are demanding a ban on the movie's screening as Sathya Raj (played as Kattappa in the movie) made some harsh comments against Karnataka farmers in Cauvery water issue. Also exhibitors are not confident of the movie's collections as Karntaka Government is putting a cap on ticket prices in multiplexes shortly. The exhibitors are refusing to pay huge advances to the distributor.
All in all, many issues are plaguing the movie in these two states. But the team is confident that all issues will be resolved by next week.
