The makers of "Baahubali" have already released several making videos of the film and they have got tremendous response from the fans. The team is yet to release the first-look teaser of the film. A few days ago, "Baahubali" director Rajamouli celebrated his birthday and fans expected a new teaser will be released. However, it did not happen much to their disappointment.
"We are overwhelmed by your support n enthusiasm for #Baahubali ! Thank u! We have planned lots more new n exciting stuff! BUT..... as much as we would all like to see a teaser or another making video, we won't be able to release one soon.. #Baahubali," tweeted Shobu Yarlagadda, producer of the film.
On 23 October, Prabhas will be celebrating his birthday. Last year, the makers of "Baahubali" had released a making video of Prabhas's role in the film. It will be interesting to see if the makers will release any teaser on the special day this year as a birthday treat for the fans.
"Baahubali," deemed as one of the costliest films in the history of Telugu cinema, is being made in two parts. The first part is likely to be released during summer 2015, while the second part is expected to hit the screens in 2016.
