Baahubali: The Conclusion
Bahubali 2 shooting suspended due to soaring temperature; Shobu Yarlagadda calls it pre-planned break: Pictured: Baahubali

The shooting of director SS Rajamouli's "Bahubali: The Conclusion" (Baahubali 2) was suspended for a month, and according to reports, the reason for the break was the soaring temperatures. But producer Shobu Yarlagadda has now refuted the rumours, and clarified that this schedule was planned  in advance.

When the team of Bahubali 2 took a break from the shooting of the movie for a month, it was rumoured that the rise in temperature above 45 degrees Celsius in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana had become an unexpected hurdle for the production of the film.

"People started losing their cool on the sets because of the blistering heat. Tempers were running high on the sets. Usually, shooting is not taken up during this kind of summer in Telangana. Therefore, the shooting was suspended for a month so that the entire team gets adequate rest," Bangalore Mirror had quoted a source as saying.

However, the reports about suspending the shooting of Bahubali 2 have not gone well with Shobu Yarlagadda, who took to his Twitter handle on April 17 to clear the air. The producer tweeted, ".@BaahubaliMovie has shooting break in May n it was planned much earlier. Post prod. training n set work will continue for June schedule."

The unit of the film recently canned some action sequences under the supervision of Hollywood stunt master Lee Whittaker. Around 10 industrial cranes were used for the filming of these scenes. The team had a tough time working under the hot summer sun. The producer reportedly arranged for tents, coolers and cold water for its cast and crew.

The makers of "Bahubali: The Conclusion" recently revealed that the second installment of "Bahubali" will be released in theatres around the world on April 14, 2017.
