Baahubali broke records during its initial release in April 2017 by collecting Rs 1700 crore worldwide. It was the first film that collected the fastest Rs 100 crore at the box office.
The film also starred Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Nasser, and others in pivotal roles. Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? This question singularly drove audiences to the theatre after the director chose to end the first part - Baahubali the Beginning - on a cliffhanger. The film received mixed reviews, as mostly critics questioned the plot that was not all too knew.
The Hindi dubbed version of Baahubali series, directed by SS Rajamouli and produced by Shobu Yarlagadda, distributed by Karan Johar and grossed Rs 500 crore.
