After a war scene in Baahubali: The Conclusion (Bahubali 2) was leaked online, a video editor in the film's graphics unit has reportedly been arrested on the charges of breach of trust.

A small video clip from the sets of Baahubali 2 was uploaded on YouTube in which Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and the team were seen shooting for a war sequence. Although the raw footage was later removed from YouTube, the video went viral on social media. It appears to be the climax scene from the film.

Producers of the franchise, Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni, immediately reacted to the incident and lodged a complaint, following which Jubilee Hills police in Hyderabad arrested the video editor, according to a report in Sakshi Post.

The leaked war scene from Baahubali 2 came as a shocker for the team as strong measures were being taken on the sets of the film to avoid any such situation. Directed by SS Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 is one of the most awaited Indian films.

The leaked video showed the stars and crew shooting for a war sequence that will apparently have high VFX in the final print. The makers of the movie were much confident about the trustworthiness of the team, but this incident will force them to be even more cautious in the coming days.

After the success of Baahubali: The Beginning, fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the sequel. Baahubali 2 will reveal the answer to the big question: "Why Katappa killed Baahubali?" The film is slated to be released on April 28 next year.
