Kannada activist opposes 'Baahubali 2' release in the state

Baahubali: The Beginning has made South actor Prabhas a star across India and has increased his female fan following by at least ten times!

Baahubali 2, the most-awaited movie of this year, was a dream the director SS Rajamouli cherished for some 15 years now. The first movie ended on a cliffhanger, leaving the audience with the question- 'why did Katappa kill Baahubali?', which became a catch-phrase and sustained interested in the sequel.

While talking about Baahubali's IMAX experience, he said, "People need to see it on bigger screens with wider sound to experience what we meant to see". The director said he was used to seeing movies on the 70mm screens but watching it in IMAX format felt like a larger than life experience.

Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia, it is said to be the first Indian film to be released in 4K High Definition format, the statement read.

"Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" has been touted as the most anticipated film of the year, which is quite evident from the rage created after its trailer release, garnering around 100 million views and still counting.

If all goes well, a record-breaking run for "Baahubali 2" would be a wake-up call for Bollywood, where cinema attendance has halved from a decade ago. "So, it makes all sense to release the film in maximum number of theaters". "Baahubali" is the ultimate product and we are the people who worked on it, so I don't think I am a bigger person than the project", added Rajamouli when asked about how a filmmaker often gets less attention compared to his film.
