Last month, S S Rajamouli revealed that re-releasing the film is their promotional strategy. He told mid-day: "I believe very few people missed it (part 1) but re-releasing the film will pull everyone back into the narrative. We collectively arrived at the decision that it will be great idea to go ahead with a pan-India release."
