5 Extremely Unsettling Facts About Bollywood Celebrities
Bahubali was always an ambitious project to begin with but the sheer numbers that make the film and its aspects are mind boggling. The film has a rating of 9.4 out of 10 in IMDB so far. The stars of the film, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati had to put on a lot of muscle to justify the name of the film which literally translates to the one with strong arms.
Filmmaker SS Rajamouli‘s magnum opus ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ is only a few weeks away from its release. There’s a huge anticipation from the audiences for this film.
But, recently there are reports being heard that the film may not release in the state of Karnataka, and is facing a ban. This is due to the remarks made by actor Sathyaraj (who plays the part of Kattappa in the film) during the Cauvery water issue. But, director SS Rajamouli is disappointed over this as those statements were made by the actor almost nine years back.
Recently while giving an interview, SS Rajamouli chose to spoke about this issue saying, “It is a sad thing and we were shocked to see that on social media. I worked with Sathyaraj for almost five years and I could have never ever imagined he is a person who could try to hurt someone. Some videos were posted on the internet. When we started inquiring, we learned that whatever comments Mr Sathyaraj made it was nine years back. And after that, about 30 films of his were released in Karnataka. ‘Baahubali 1’ released. No one had problems with that. And suddenly, raking up the issue at this point in time is not right.”
Around 2,000 Kannada outfits led by activist Vatal Nagaraj have decided to stall the release of the film in the state unless Sathyaraj apologise for his derogatory remarks.
Further, actor Rana Daggubati, who plays a negative role in ‘Baahubali’ also commented on this issue saying, “That’s something he (Sathyaraj) said 10 years ago. ‘Baahubali’ part one released in Karnataka and everybody loved it. It was huge in Karnataka. I mean, they’re just trying to make news again.” [sic]
Let’s wait for more updates on it.
Starring Prabhas, who plays the titular role, the movie also features actors Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia and others. It is slated to release on April 28, 2017.
