SS Rajamouli, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Karan Johar and team Baahubali addressed the media at a star studded trailer launch event of Baahubali: The Conclusion in Mumbai.

At the event, when Karan Johar was asked to comment on the record breaking Rs 110 crore satellite rights deal locked between the producers of 2.0 and Zee Network, the producer revealed that the film deserves such a humongous amount.

"Yes of course star-power matters. 2.0 marks coming together of two humongous stars (Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth), from two different parts of the country for a huge project which is the reason for exciting satellite rights money. It seems to be a humongous mainstream film and of course it makes a difference in terms of television rights," said Johar.

The film-maker also revealed that he is proud to present a magnum opus like Baahubali to the Hindi audiences and was confident that the second instalment will set new benchmarks at the box-office.

Also starring Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia, Baahubali: The Conclusion releases on April 28.
