Expectations were pretty high that Baahubali would set new benchmarks in terms of TRP ratings too.
MAA TV bought the satellite rights of Baahubali for a whopping price. They have expected Baahubali to get above 30 points and set a new benchmark in TRP.
However Baahubali only got 21.8 which is lower than Magadheera’s television premiere. Magadheera got 22.7 but it is not the highest ever for a Telugu film. This record is reportedly held by Sri Ramadasu with 24 points.
There was so much buzz about Baahubali’s television premiere but the ratings prove that not everybody has shown interest in watching the epic movie on TV.
Movies that were aired on other channels during Baahubali premiere managed to get decent TRP! However this is the best in last five years surpassing Attarinti Daredi’s 19+ TRP.
