Director SS Rajamouli has four answers to the million-dollar question, 'Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali,' one of which will be revealed in "Baahubali (Bahubali) 2." The filmmaker is yet to decide on which version would make it to the film.
Rajamouli's "Baahubali: The Beginning" ended abruptly with the question, 'Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali,' raging in everyone's minds. Several speculations have been made about the reason behind Baahubali's murder, but the makers have not approved any of them. The buzz is that SS Rajamouli himself did not know the answer when he released the first instalment of the "Baahubali" series.
"Even the director too didn't know the answer when he released the first part. Now, he has come up with four versions and will decide on one of them before shooting ends," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.
This question has generated a lot of curiosity about "Baahubali: The Conclusion." Living up to the audience's expectations is the biggest challenge that the director is said to be facing now. According to latest reports, Rajamouli has shot four versions of the scene featuring the murder of Baahubali and he is yet to finalise the one to be used in the sequel. SS Rajamouli is likely to choose one of the four versions before he wraps up the shooting of "Baahubali 2."
The shooting of "Baahubali 2" is currently going on at Ramoji Rao Film City in Hyderabad, where the unit has been filming the climax for the last 10 weeks. Producer Shobu Yarlagadda tweeted on Aug. 16: "We are in the 10th week of @BaahubaliMovie climax shooting and right on schedule! Fingers crossed and moving along.. More updates soon!"
"Baahubali: The Conclusion" is the continuation of the epic historical fiction film, "Baahubali: The Beginning," starring Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati and Tamannaah Bhatia. The movie is scheduled to be released in theatres on April 28, 2017. The director has said that the second part would be more emotional and would display more grandeur.
