Prabhas starrer Baahubali created a storm on the silver-screen after it's release in 2015.

But not only in India, this film still has universal appeal. So much that the movie's second leg was now being shown in Russia on TV.
The sequel of the movie 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' was released in 2017, and registered a remarkable success at the global box-office by shattering over Rs 1800 crore in all versions. The blockbuster movie that starred South sensation Prabhas, Rana Dagubati and Anushka Shetty in lead roles, with an ensemble star cast like Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nasser was recently featured on Russian TV. The clip from the movie was shared by the Russian Embassy.
