Baahubali 2 is approximately two weeks away from the release and the excitement to see the second installment on the big screen amongst the fans is palpable. The movie, with its first part, created history in terms of box office and left a huge question in the minds of the audience – Why Katappa killed Baahubali?
Recently, when director S.S. Rajamouli was asked about his film and its characters, which have now become iconic, he said to a leading daily that he has been living with those characters for five years and hence he is very emotional about them.
Says Rajamouli, “My entire team has been working on this project for five years. It all started with my dad’s (Vijayendra Prasad) narration of individual characters of Baahubali. The electrifying feeling jolted me for more than a month, and every character stayed with me.”
He continues, “I would cry, laugh and get emotional while thinking about the characters. I wanted the audiences to experience what I had felt when my father first told me the story.”
When asked, what to expect from the second installment that comes out soon, the director assured, “In the first part, we just introduced the characters. We never showed the in-depth drama between them. The second installment will showcase the emotions and drama on a better scale.”
Directed by S.S. Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 stars Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Rana Daggubati in the lead. The movie releases on April 28, 2017. The Hindi version of the movie is being distributed byKaran Johar’s Dharma Productions along with Anil Thadani.
