Mumbai: Filmmaker SS Rajamouli's blockbuster "Baahubali" will be screened at the upcoming 20th Busan International Film Festival.

It will be shown on three days (October 4, 7 and 11) during the 10-day festival, which opens on October 1.

Rajamouli took to Twitter to share the news with his fans and also said he will be present at the October 4 screening in Busan, South Korea.

"Baahubali will be screening at Busan International Film Festival on Oct 4th, 7th and 9th. I'll be attending on 4th..." he tweeted.

The multi-lingual film, starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Tammannah Bhatia, was touted as one of the most expensive films made in the country and reportedly raked in Rs 500 crore in the three weeks since its release.

"I am shooting from next Monday for a film. Rajamouli will attend it. I think this is just the beginning. 'Baahubali' will go places," Daggubati said.

"Masaan" actor Vicky Kaushal's upcoming film "Zubaan" will open the festival, while "Mountain Cry" is the closing film for the event.
 

Hansal Mehta's "Aligarh", starring Rajkummar Rao and Manoj Bajpayee, will also premiere at the festival. It is based on the real life incident of a professor who was terminated from his job due to his sexual orientation.
