Having already turned profitable, the movie raised a further Rs. 78 crore from satellite television rights sales.

Furthermore, the Baahubali team also partnered with Graphic India to take the movie beyond the screen into orginal graphic novels, animation, merchandise and video games, and these ventures are expected to raise another Rs. 10 crore.

Baahubali 2's impressive pre-release performance might be dwarfed by the money it makes after release.
