SS Rajamouli has revealed that the Hyderabad Police had permitted them to hold the music launch of "Baahubali" with limited audience on 31 May, but his team delayed the event as they did not want to disappoint the fans.
On Thursday morning, the director held a press meet to announce the postponement of the music launch of "Baahubali". Later, SS Rajamouli took to his Facebook page to narrate the entire incident that led to the film unit delaying the audio and trailer release of the much-awaited movie.
Here is the complete post by SS Rajamouli on his Facebook page:
"As you all know, the original plan was to release the trailer and the audio for the film on 31st of May... We also wanted to have a press meet and update everyone on the progress of the film on the 30th before the function. Unfortunately, some security issues have come up regarding the Audio Function. Initially, everything was going according to plan – we had the necessary police permissions and figured out the logistics of how to enter the venue, how to exit, where to park, etc. But late last evening, due to the increasing number of fans expected to attend the function, the police informed us that they have reservations about going ahead with the event at Hitex grounds. Because of several incidences that occurred at various other functions, the police team were concerned about the safety of the people in attendance. They gave us permission to go ahead with the event if the number of people expected can be limited – but the entire team didn't agree with this plan. After supporting us for years, we did not feel that leaving some fans out of the function is the right thing to do. We decided that the disappointment we would feel if we excluded some fans would be worse than what we would feel if we postponed the event. We are already working on finding a solution and will be announcing the re-scheduled date of the Audio Launch very soon. We called this press meet to apologize to all our fans and request you all to bear with us just for a little longer. We still don't have full clarity on how to fix this problem, but we will definitely find a solution where we can include all our fans in the Baahubali Audio celebrations. Thank you all for your patience."
