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 naa?
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 language."
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.
Now, that would indeed be interesting!
