    S S Rajamouli is happy that 'Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali?' has become something of a pop culture quiz as he believes it shows that Baahubali has broken the language barrier successfully. Rajamouli says he and the makers encounters this question every day and it never tires them as it indicates the anticipation for the second part of the story, which ended on a cliffhanger.

    "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", said the director in a recent interview.

    The visionary director says he always believed that it was possible to move beyond region and the movie proved him right. "We believed we could transcend this barrier if we based our stories on basic human emotions without it being pulled down by regionalities."

    "I always believed that if you have a story like that, it will reach beyond. But that was a theory, no one had done it before. So, I can't explain how confident it makes me feel as a filmmaker."

    The 42-year-old director says emulating a similar success internationally is not difficult provided the filmmakers have a story that resonates with audiences everywhere.

    "Internationally, it's the same thing. Once you base your film on basic human emotions, it will do well. We should also look at how wide a release we are getting in the market and how to get people interested to come to theatres. We knew once they will come, they are going to like the film."

    After a great run at the Indian box office, the royal revenge saga is releasing in China. "Our next release is going to be China. We are releasing the film in 6500 screens, which is much bigger than India. It will happen this month or next month." The sequel, Baahubali: The Conclusion, is currently being shot with a release date in April 2017.

    Rajamouli says the delay of a year-and-a-half was not intentional. "When we started the film, we wanted to reveal both the parts within a gap of three to four months. But the way we were putting in money our finances were over. We finished the first part and decided to release second part one year later."

    "Somehow we knew, the second part will work even after one year. Many films like The Lord of the Rings. The Hobbit and Batman come after one year but people were hooked after the success of the first part."

    There is a huge build up around the sequel considering the success of the first part but Rajamouli is confident that the second part will work well. "I am not under any pressure. The expectations of people is actually a pressure reliever."
