From Prabhas’ Baahubali and Rana Daggubati’s Bhallaladeva’s battle unto death to that all-important and really annoying question, why Kattappa killed Baahubali, this film is supposed to have it all.
While the trailer was released in the morning, an official trailer launch is on in Mumbai in the presence of film’s director SS Rajamouli, actors Prabhas and Rana Daggubati and Karan johar who is presenting the film. After being a part of film’s trailer launch in Andhra Pradesh — where the trailers were shown on 300 screens — the team is in Mumbai to answer all the questions sans one, why did Kattappa do what he did.
A sequel to 2015’s Baahubali, Baahubali: The Conclusion stars Prabhas, Rana, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty and Sathyaraj. The trailer has got record views and trended worldwide. It also marks a grander return of the film which changed the rules of Indian filmmaking.
