Shobu Yarlagadda and his colleagues - director S S Rajamouli and actors Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, and Anushka Shetty - were in Dubai promoting their film Baahubali: The Conclusion, releasing worldwide this Friday. The film is part two of Rajamouli's VFX-intensive fantasy - part one released in 2015 to blockbuster status. Baahubali: The Conclusion will release across 8,000 screens in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada. The movie is reported to have already made Rs 500 crore through the sale of its distribution and satellite rights.
Actors Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan and Tamannaah Bhatia also reprise their roles in Baahubali: The Conclusion. Sathyaraj, who plays the pivotal role of senapati Katappa, issued an apology last week for comments he made nine years ago about the Cauvery water crisis. Pro-Kannada organisations had been threatening to prevent the film from releasing in Karnataka unless the actor apologized.
Baahubali: The Beginning ended on a cliffhanger with Katappa killing Baahubali, the reason for which is expected to be revealed in the second film.
