So the finally truth is revealed why Katappa killed Baahubali? Baahubali won the National Award recently and the old question was re-birth once more: Why did Katappa kill Baahubali? We were resigned to the fact that we would just have to wait till the end of this year, when Baahubali 2 releases, to find the answer.
So the Answer to this Billion Dollar Question is revealed…!!! Any Guesses…I can definitely guess no answer but the now the Director of Baahubali SS Rajamouli come forward with a anwer. It looks like that Rajamouli has taken pity on us and revealed why Katappa killed Baahubali in a video posted by Dharma Productions on YouTube.
Although, you should take it with a pinch of salt.
Rajamouli says Katappa killed Baahubali because, “I asked him to do it!” Ugh, the hubris of a director.
So after all, we will have to wait for few more months. In the meanwhile, this is what the director has to say about Baahubali 2.
On Baahubali part 2
There is no denying the fact that Part 2 will be bigger than the first film but its USP will be emotions between the characters. It will be something that will keep the audience impale even more than the scenes of war. The film will release late in 2016.
On working with Karan Johar
Despite our sensibilities being very different, I somehow felt we would gel. When Rana took our project to Karan, our love for cinema brought us together. It was a very fruitful copartnership and he is a big part of Baahubali’s success.
On who played pranks on the set?
I will kick any prankster on the set. How can there be pranks when such serious job is going on?
On the challenges while making Baahubali
SS Rajamouli further said; We shot for 380 days and by the time we reached 320 days I could feel a sense of fatigue in the whole unit. In our industry, the energy flows from the director. I was myself very tired and keeping the tempo up for the last 60 days was the biggest challenge.
