The Baahubali (Bahubali) team is celebrating the first anniversary of "Baahubali - The Beginning" and it has released some photos and a making video of the film to mark its celebration of one year of its release on July 10.
After over three-years of hard work, SS Rajamouli-directed "Baahubali - The Beginning" was released in theatres around the world on July 10, 2015. Like a Tsunami, the Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah-starrer stormed the worldwide box office and became all time biggest opening Indian film. The movie made an overwhelming business in the following days too.
"Baahubali - The Beginning" shattered most of the collection records of Indian cinema and set its own new benchmarks. Most of its records are unbroken even one year after its release. The period movie has also garnered several National, IIFA, Filmfare and SIIMA awards. The film is set to be dubbed and released in China and few other international markets.
Shobu Yarlagadda, who has bankrolled "Baahubali" under his banner Arka Media Works, had probably not imagined that his movie would get such a response from the audience. The thrilled producer took to his Twitter page to share his excitement. He tweeted: "Floating birthday balloons on @BaahubaliMovie Twitter page ! You can even burst them! #1YearForIndianEpicBahubali."
The producer also released a making video of "Baahubali - The Beginning" on its official YouTube channel. The 1.17-minute-long video offers glimpse at the production of some important scenes of the film. Hours before its released, they tweeted, "We will be posting a small unseen behind the scenes video of Baahubali - The Beginning in a while. #1YearForIndianEpicBaahubali."
Later "Baahubali" team posted the link on its official Twitter account and wrote: "Reminiscing the memories of filming Baahubali - The Beginning. #1YearOfIndianEpicBaahubali." Check out the above video to see the making some important scenes of "Baahubali - The Beginning."
However, "Baahubali - The Beginning" made it to headlines hundreds of times for all good reasons for three years before it release. It became the most-searched film on Google and most-talked-about subject in the media. A year has passed after its release, but the film has continued to a talk of the town. A million-dollar question "Why did Kattappa Killed Baahubali?" has been storming the net even today.
The curiosity generated by the million-dollar question kept the critics and audience waiting for the release of its second part titled "Baahubali - The Conclusion." Bollywood critics Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Exactly 1 year ago, a classic called #Baahubali released. Now awaiting #Baahubali2... Also, need to know, why did #Katappa kill #Baahubali?"
Joginder Tuteja, another noted critic from Bollywood, tweeted: "#Baahubali - One year gone. What a film it was @RanaDaggubati ! The question still lingers - Why did #Katappa kill #Baahubali? :-)"
The makers of the film have recently made it clear that "Baahubali 2" will be bigger and better than the first instalment in the Baahubali film series and it will be high on emotional quotient. They have also revealed that "Baahubali - The Conclusion" will be released in theatres on April 14, 2017, which happens to be the Good Friday holiday.
