MUMBAI: Licensing and merchandising solutions agency Black White Orange has been appointed as the global licensing agent by Arka Mediaworks Entertainment LLP for their national award-winning movie Baahubali. The much awaited part 2, Baahubali – The Conclusion hits screens worldwide in April 2017.

With the aim to create a ‘Baahubali brand experience’, Black White Orange will work closely with Arka Mediaworks to conceptualize designs, represent the Baahubali franchise across a wide range of categories and also look at several licensing and retail partnerships, globally. Having already signed on a spate of leading international names like Paramount Pictures, Game of Thrones, Universal Pictures etc. till date, Black White Orange make their first Bollywood brand foray with Arka Mediaworks and their popular franchise - Baahubali .

“The most challenging part is building the brand and in case of the Baahubali franchise, this job is already done with the global success of the first part of the movie. I know people will be expecting more from the second part. They will not be dissatisfied! We’re confident that Black White Orange’s expertise combined with the Baahubali franchise will translate into an exciting offering of consumer products.” said the film's director SS Rajamouli.

Arka Mediaworks CEO Shobu Yarlagadda said, “We are confident that Black White Orange's unique and promising strategic approach will build the Baahubali brand in India and help us reach our fans.”

Black White Orange founder and CEO Bhavik Vora added, "Indian cinema has the biggest fan following in the country and probably the most untapped potential on the consumer product platform that takes fans beyond the realm of the big screen. Arka Mediaworks' Baahubali has raised the bar and created benchmarks in every aspect of movie making."

Fans across the globe will soon be able to buy authentic licensed merchandise which will be available at retail and online portals, making it possible for every fan to own their favorite Baahubali merchandise. India is a private consumption led economy with retail merchandising forming 45% of private consumption and the current licensing market is 185 million driven by kids and men.
