8 Bollywood Films Earned 100 Crore Worldwide Without Any Superstar
Ever since the film’s much-anticipated release, fans have been going gaga about the scale of the S.S. Rajamouli epic and the performances from the lead actors. Recently, the film’s director bid adieu to the film franchise by posting a tweet on his Twitter profile. This time around, the film’s protagonist Prabhas posted a heartfelt message for all his fans on his Facebook page. The actor wrote, “To All My Fans , a big hug to each one of you for all the love that you'll have showered on me. I have tried my best to go through a lot of the efforts that you all have put to express your affection for me from different parts of India and even overseas. I am truly overwhelmed with everything. The journey of Baahubali has been a long one but among the few things that I will take away from this, is all of you. Lots of love back to you all. A big thank you to SS Rajamouli sir for believing in me to carry his huge vision to the masses, giving me a once-in-a-lifetime character of Baahubali and making the entire journey so special.”
Prabhas impressed one and all with his superior performance and ripped physique in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali' franchise. The actor, who is still one of the most eligible bachelors in tinsel town, seems to have charmed the ladies and left them smitten with his ruggedly good looks. It has come to light that during the course of shooting for both ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ and 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion', Prabhas received a whopping 6000 marriage proposals. What’s even more shocking is that the Tollywood hunk turned each and every one of them down due to his work commitments. While this shows how popular the actor is among the ladies, it also shows how professional Prabhas actually is.
Neither Thalaivaa Rajinikanth, nor super talented Kamal Haasan, it is ‘Baahubali’ Prabhas who has made his way to the Madame Tussauds, Bangkok. The 37-year-old has become the first South Indian actor to have his own wax statue at the renowned museum.
Apart from the roaring success of ' Bahubali 2: The Conclusion', it seems Prabhas now has yet another reason to celebrate! On a related note, the S.S. Rajamouli-magnum opus has garnered a whopping Rs. 383 crores in just four days. Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has presented the Hindi version of the franchise, made the announcement on Twitter, "383 crores!!!! All languages in 4 days!!!!! #Baahubali2TheConclusion ....Indian Cinema's crowning glory!!!!!!"
‘Baahubali 2’ mania has gripped the nation, and among the millions raving about the film is the Superstar himself – Rajinikanth. The south film industry's living legend joined the chorus of fans singing praises of the film when he took to his social networking handle on Sunday night and termed the film as “Indian cinema’s pride”, and saluted director Rajamouli and his team.
Lauding the masterpiece, Rajinikanth tweeted, "'Baahubali 2' Indian cinema's pride. My salutes to god's own child Rajamouli and his team." Humbled by Rajinikanth's kind words, director Rajamouli replied saying, " THALAIVAAAA... Feeling like god himself blessed us... our team is on cloud9... Anything couldn't be bigger..."
While the first part, ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’, released in July 2015 and reportedly minted over Rs 500 crore at the box-office, ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, which released on April 28 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, collected an estimated Rs 122 crore on day 1 across the nation. The second part in the "Baahubali" franchise is said to have registered the biggest opening for an Indian film.
Directed by SS Rajamouli, ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan. Meanwhile, actor Rajinikanth is looking forward to the release of his next sic-fi drama ‘2.0’ co-starring Akshay Kumar.
‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ has finally released and is taking the nation by storm. The director of the movie SS Rajamouli is earning a lot of praise and accolades for his efforts. However, not many know that a number of members from Rajamouli's extended family were involved with this project, thus truly making it a family affair. Starting off with the script, it was penned by the ace director’s father Vijayendra Prasad. Rajamouli’s wife Rama shouldered the responsibility of designing costumes for the film while son SS Karthikeya stepped in as a Second Unit Director and daughter Mayuka featured in the film's song ‘Saahore Baahubali’.
That's not all, Music Composer MM Keeravani, also happens to be Rajamouli’s cousin and the lyricists are his uncles K Shiva Shakti Datta and K Ramakrishna. Kalyani Malik, the Sound Recording Artist is also a cousin to the filmmaker. Malik’s son Mayur too lent his voice in some parts of the movie. Keeravani’s wife Sree Valli, on the other hand, became the Line Producer and his sons Kaala Bhairava and Sri Simha took on the duties of Singer and Assistant Music Director respectively. The composer’s daughter was also part of the ‘Saahore Baahubali’ song along with Rajamouli’s daughter.
Finally, the VFX Assistant for the ambitious project, Rajabali is also a cousin of the ace director. Thus with as many as fifteen relatives involved in the magnum opus, Rajamouli and his extended family have given us the masterpiece 'Baahubali 2'.

We have got a chance to get a glimpse of the invites for the grand premier of the film. As reported by Mumbai Mirror, the invitations sent out by Dharma Productions head honcho Karan Johar are really alluring. Just as the storyline, the invite that came as a hard bound case had layers as well. While it has a golden matinee-like ticket that read 'World Premier' above the film's title. The box also has a placard depicting a coloured sketch of the franchise's iconic scene, which shows Shivagami Devi holding up young Baahubali as she is immersed in the water to protect him from drowning.

In the poster, Anushka, who essays Devasena in the film, can be seen sitting on a throne, looking regal in a royal blue saree and heavy jewellery. In ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’, Anushka played a tortured, harassed woman who was held prisoner by Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati), the cruel, ruthless king of Mahishmati. What kept her going was the belief that one day her son – Shivadu will come to rescue her. Now, in the sequel, the audience will go back in time and witness the journey of the young Devasena.
Bollywood’s filmmaker and producer Karan Johar has been long associated with the ‘Baahubali’ franchise and has been the major reason that the fantasy epic received national attention. His contribution did not go unnoticed by S.S. Rajamouli and team. During the trailer launch event of ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, they gifted Karan the sword of Baahubali as a token of appreciation. The makers claimed it was this very sword which Katappa used to kill Amarendra Baahubali, thus adding more mystery to the very famous question, ”Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?”
