Baahubali 2: Will the Film's Release Get Stalled in Karnataka?
A still from the film.

Its just less less than a month left for the release of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali: The Conlcusion and the nation is literally counting days to 28th April. But fans in Karnataka have to deal with a different issue prior to the film’s release. A pro-Kannada group has approached Karnataka Film Chamber Of Commerce President SA Ra Govindu to stop the release of Baahubali 2 in Karnataka. The reason for the ban? Actor Sathyaraj who plays Kattappa in the film had reportedly made anti-Karnataka remarks in the past.

The actor had spoken in favour of Tamil Nadu during the Cauvery water dispute between the two states. The comment was actually made a few years ago, even before the release of Baahubali: The Beginning. But the group has raised the issue now and demanding a ban on the release of the film.

Earlier reports said the group Karnataka Rakshana Vedike had stopped the screening of the film’s trailer at a theater in Bellary in Karnataka. There has been no official word from the makers on the matter yet,

SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion is one of the most anticipated films of the year. A second part of the immensely successful Baahubali: The Beginning, the film will answer the all important question- Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? The film has Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty playing prominent roles.
