After learning this demand, Netflix, which is working towards strengthening its presence in India, reportedly acquired the online streaming rights of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. American entertainment company has shelled out Rs 25.5 crore ($4 million) on the rights, according to Live Mint.

He tweeted: ".@NetflixIndia acquires the streaming rights @BaahubaliMovie for a whopping $4 Million [₹ 25.50 Crs] - Will be available in 192 countries.."

Netflix India offered a hint at the deal earlier this week. The bosses of the company tweeted on August 7: "The question that had us up many nights, now answered on Netflix." The news about the deal with the Baahubali makers was confirmed when Shobu Yarlagadda retweeted the above comment.

A day later, the makers of Baahubali confirmed on Twitter that viewers can watch all three versions of Baahubali 2 on Netflix. They tweeted on August 8: "#Baahubali2 Full Movie (Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi) is now available on @iTunes & @netflix in select countries! Watch and Relive the epic!"
