SS Rajamouli directorial Baahubali-The Conclusion (Bahubali 2) has become the most awaited movie of 2017 in a survey, beating Shah Rukh Khan's Raees.

In a survey titled Ormax Cinematix by Ormax Media, Bahubali 2 came up as the most anticipated movie in the list of 4 other much awaited Bollywood movies. The list includes Bollywood films that will release in 2017 and trailers of the movies have not been out yet.

While Bahubali 2 topped the list of most awaited Hindi movies of 2017, followed by Raees, other three films in the chart are Salman Khan's Tubelight, Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil and Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2.

Although Baahubali is a Tollywood series, the Hindi version of the movie also had received huge response all around. And thus, it is being listed among the most awaited Hindi movies of 2017.

Earlier Aamir Khan's Dangal had topped the list of the same survey, before the trailer of the film was released. Now with Dangal's trailer out already, Bahubali 2 has replaced it to claim the top slot.

Baahubali-The Beginning was a blockbuster and expectations are high that Bahubali 2 would surpass the previous records as well. The makers of the film had raised curiosity among the fans by revealing the first look of Prabhas and some promotional videos of the film.

On the other side, Shah Rukh'a Raees too has been grabbing attention as the trailer of the film is likely to be out anytime soon. While Raees will hit the screens on January 26 along with Kaabil, Bahubali 2 will be released on April 28.
