Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s secret is out: Now we know why Kattappa killed Amarendra Baahubali, and the role of the king’s aunt, queen mother Sivagami’s murky role in palace intrigue. But if you thought the Sivagami-Kattappa saga ends here, here’s a surprise for you.
Given the popularity and fan craze around Baahubali, a popular textile showroom in Chennai has roped in Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj, who played Sivagami and Kattappa respectively, to feature in an advertisement. In the film, Kattappa plays a slave soldier to Sivagami. In the ad though, the two play a much-in-love married couple. Sathyaraj plays a feudal lord, somewhere in Tamil Nadu, who never fails to fulfill his wife’s desire to shop at the particular showroom called Pothys. The ad begins with the wife in a huff while the husband tries hard to placate her. After some fuss, she gives in when he gifts her new sari.
SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has been on a record-breaking spree, bulldozing anything that comes its way. The film’s latest achievement has been becoming the highest grossing Indian film ever at Rs 1000 crore in worldwide collections.
The film has been grabbing international headlines too. It was screened at the prestigious British Film Institute (BFI) in London and beat Hollywood biggie Tom Hanks’ film The Circle in the North American box office to emerge third highest grosser in the first week of its release after Fate of the Furious and How to a Latin Lover.
