The trailer of Baahubali: The Conclusion released last week and so far set a record of getting the highest number of views on YouTube. The film, part two of Mr Rajamouli's magnum opus, stars Prabhas in the double role of Amrendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali, Rana Daggubati as the tyrannical king Bhallala Deva and Sathyaraj as Katappa. Anushka Shetty, Tamannah Bhatia and Ramya Krishna will reprise their roles as Devasena, Avanthika and Sivagami. Baahubali: The Conclusion is also expected to reveal why Katappa killed Baahubali.
During the pre-release event, when Sathyaraj was asked why his character Katappa killed Baahubali, the actor said, "Producer Shobu paid me very well to kill Prabhas. My director Rajamouli asked me to kill Baahubali, and I obliged. Why would I kill darling Prabhas otherwise?"
