Rajamouli : Biggest Mistake of Baahubali?

Director giant Rajamouli is quite aggressive when it comes to Baahubali promotions right from the beginning. Couple of years before the release itself, he has come up with making videos, birthday greetings and then character introductions to make the film occupy minds of audiences. Even after the release, he's not leaving these feats.
Released on July 10, 2015, Baahubali: The Beginning, first part of the two-part series has spun magic at box office by amassing nearly 600 crores gross from all versions. And latest update is that, Baahubali: The Beginning will be releasing on YouTube, that too with 4K resolution. That's a record of sorts as this multi-starrer film is the first Indian film to be uploaded on 4K, but that could be the biggest and costliest mistake too, opines trade pundits. Actually Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam versions of Baahubali are being uploaded tomorrow on YouTube. If this is for a free watch, then international audiences will also get a chance to watch it. For 50% audiences, language never matters even if sub-titles are not present. Also piracy gangs might create sub-titles in no time and sell. Even if Baahubali online version is available for a price, still there are chances for piracy. In that case, what about international distributors who wants to buy and release Baahubali in their local language? -
