Baahubali 2 first look: A beefy Prabhas seeks revenge
The first look of the sequel to SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster film Baahubali: The Beginning, was unveiled at the ongoing MAMI film festival in Mumbai on Friday. The poster of Baahubali: The Conclusion has Prabhas as Baahubali: bare-chested and muscular, with flowing mane and windswept necklace, he’s shown clutching chains in his left hand, and a sword in the other.
In a Facebook Live event at the launch, which was attended by the entire star cast of the film, it was revealed that Prabhas used to eat up to 40 egg white every day to put on 100kg.
The poster’s background, in an electric-blue haze, shows Amarendra Baahubali in his battle regalia. It’s clear that the younger Baahubali is in a revenge mould in this film, now that he knows his identity. He is out to avenge his father’s assassination.
Baahubali: The Conclusion is the second and final part of the multi-lingual film starring Rana, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia.
The buzz around the action sequences in the film has been on an all-time high, and the new poster only adds to the drama. Rana Daggubati, the film’s antagonist, had said in an earlier interview that the “action scenes in Baahubali 2 will make the first film look small”. He added, “They have been amazingly shot and are mind blowing. We were left awestruck while filming them, so I can imagine how the audience will be blown away by them. The second film will bring a totality to the story. People will get to know why Kattapa killed Baahubali! And the other interesting aspect is the large scale, which is far bigger than the prequel’s.”
Baahubali: The Conclusion will hit the theatres on April 28, 2017.
