Ever since SS Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali: The Beginning
ended with a nail-biting cliff-hanger, a lot of speculations have
been doing the rounds as to why Katappa killed Baahubali and even
gave birth to various memes and jokes on the social media.
Recently at the pre-release celebration of 'Baahubali: The
Conclusion' at Hyderabad's Ramoji City, Sathyaraj who famously
stars as Katappa in the historic drama, was welcomed on stage with
a huge round of applause. When he was asked the reason behind the
famous cliff-hanger, in which Katappa kills Amarendra Baahubali,
the actor had a simple explanation for it. He 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?" Hahaaa, that's quite a funny answer
Earlier in an interview, Rajamouli had admitted that he loves
being asked this question. He had said, "We love it when anyone
asks this question. I can't count the number of times we get asked
this. It is exciting not just for me but for the entire team. We
feel elated that we could break the barrier of region and
Meanwhile, ahead of the release of 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'
on 28th April, the makers are planning to screen Baahubali:
The Beginning as a treat for fans.
