It’s a double whammy for Baahubali fans. How? Well, first the trailer of Baahubali: The Conclusion was released today and it is interesting as hell. Secondly, for those mourning the end of the franchise, here’s some good news.
Director SS Rajamouli, who was in the city today for the trailer launch, has revealed that though the story of Baahubali in movies will end, the world of Baahubali will not end. No, we aren’t joking!
“The story of Baahubali in films as in Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion is going to end but the world of Baahubali is not going to end. It will be there in the form of comics, novels, virtual reality films, TV series for the fans to enjoy,” SS Rajamouli said.
Is he hinting that there might be a TV series on Baahubali? Well, that only time will tell. For now, be assured that this magnum opus will continue to enthrall you.
The Hindi version of the trailer was earlier scheduled to release later in the evening. While the Telugu version was slated to release at 9 AM across 300 theatres in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. However, the Tamil version of the film got leaked on social media. SS Rajamouli later clarified that it was not a leak but due to some technical glitch the video which was supposed to be in private mode on Facebook went into public mood. However, he maintained that they are extremely happy with the response.
Directed by SS Rajamouli the movie stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nassar in pivotal roles.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is set to hit the theatres on April 28, 2017.
