The Bahubali 2 craze has spilled over to Pakistan. 

The Pakistani Censor Board (PCB) has reportedly released the film without a single cut. 

Deccan Chronicle quoted a senior Pakistani distributor Amjad Rasheed saying PCB was expected to be uncomfortable clearing Bahubali 2 as it glorified Hindu mythology. 

But it saw the film as an action thriller loaded with special effects and gave an all-clear status.

“Baahubali 2 was passed without a single cut since the PCB did not find anything objectionable in the film,” Rashid says. 

The president of the Indian Film Exporters Association, Hirachand Dand, said Baahubali 2 had opened up a new market in Pakistan for dubbed Hindi releases. 

The film is reportedly running in 100 theatres  to packed houses. This is about a quarter more than 75 screens Salman Khan's Sultan had secured in Pakistan.

Sultan, a blockbuster in Pakistan, had managed to earn Rs 15 crore thanks to a five-day eid weekend.
