Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? Now that is one question which has left all of us uneasy and sleepless for more than two-and-a-half years. The answer is still months away because Baahubali 2 will be releasing only in 2017.
But in the meanwhile, Baahubali’s Bhallala Dev aka star Rana Daggubati spoke to Bollywoodlife and made us question all our basics. The ‘why-Kattappa-killed-Baahubali’ is not a well-kept secret. Apparently, every single person who has been associated with the film knows the answer to this question.
In the interview, Rana Daggubati said, “Everyone on our film set (Baahubali 2) knows, SS Rajamouli was very clear from the beginning, every single actor who has worked on this film, right from the smallest to the biggest will know the entire story of Baahubali very clearly.
The two parts were narrated to us, five years ago. So it was a not quick creation that came out of nowhere. It was planned, thought of and executed.
And here we all were worrying over the reason and telling ourselves that only a select few knew. Feeling like a sucker already?
To give you some hope, here is another comment that the actor made in the interview. He said about Baahubali: The Conclusion, “It’s not something that can be explained. It’s a big grand visual treat that you will have to watch and it will be out on 28th of April 2017.”
Now this is much more than what the film’s director S.S. Rajamouli was ready to reveal when he was asked the same question. In a video shared by Dharma Productions, Baahubali director S S Rajamouli has been interviewed wherein he has clearly said that Kattappa killed Baahubali because, “I asked him to do so.”
Well, a hilarious answer, but definitely not what the world was expecting it to be.
