Baahubali hero Prabhas is now just two days away from Baahubali: The Conclusion, the second part of S S Rajamouli's magnum opus, to arrive at the theatres. While a premiere is scheduled in Mumbai on Thursday, the very first person Prabhas wants should watch the film is his mother Siva Kumari. However, Prabhas, 37, is way too shy to accompany his mother to the screening as he wants to avoid receiving instant feedback. The reason Prabhas wants his mother to be the first of the many to enjoy Baahubali: The Conclusion is because her opinion is of utmost importance to Prabhas.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is expected to be one of the biggest releases in Indian cinema, reportedly releasing across 8,000 screens and in Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam apart from Telugu. Karan Johar, whose Dharma Productions is in charge of distributing the Hindi version of the film, have organised for a grand premiere in Mumbai. The list of expected guests include Team Baahubali comprising Tamannaah Bhatia, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan director Rajamouli and producer Shobhu Yarlagadda.
Here's a glimpse of the invite shared by trade analyst Taran Adarsh:
Meanwhile, Rajamouli has continued to rave about Prabhas' dedication towards his ambitious project for five years. Talking about which, Prabhas told news agency IANS: "For Rajamouli, I would have even spent more than four years on Baahubali. I would have been ready to dedicate even seven years for him on the project."
Prabhas, who also underwent massive physical fluctuations for the years he invested in the project, also said: "It was physically strenuous, especially while working on action sequences in the first part. In the second part, Rajamouli edited the action scenes in a way that he made the whole process very easy."
In Baahubali: The Conclusion, Prabhas will reprise his role as Mahendra Baahubali and will also feature as Amarendra Baahubali, the king of Mahishmathi.
