Release of Baahubali 2 in Karnataka: Kattappa Turns The Villain Of The Piece!

SS Rajamouli’s fantasy epic film sequel Baahubali 2 faces opposition in Karnataka. Some Kannada organizations have called for a bandh on the day the film is to be released –April 28 — in protest against remarks made by Sathyaraj (Kattappa) nine years ago. Is it not a deliberate move to scuttle the film’s unprecedented success?

Hyderabad: If success has its price to pay, the hugely successful Telugu film director SS Rajamouli has just started realizing this fact. After eye-popping pre-release shows of Baahubali 2 in Hyderabad and Chennai, the mega film makers are facing hurdles in Bangalore, the most cosmopolitan city in the South where the movie is due to be released on April 28 along with other cities and towns in India and abroad.

Why Baahubali, the invincible hero of epic proportions in the fantasy film, is facing a hostile reaction in the neighbouring state of Karnataka? The opposition to it is not so much to the film as to one of its key characters Kattappa, played by Sathyaraj.

Ever since Rajamouli and his team have embarked on the massive promotion of Baahubali’s sequel about two weeks ago in India and abroad, the air is thick with the talk of Baahubali 2 breaking all Indian records in box office collections and it is estimated to have netted Rs 1000 crores even before the film’s release.

None in the Indian film industry has an iota of doubt about its collections, given the track record of Baahubali 1. But the least expected is spoilsports who pop up from some corner of the country raising an objection or concern about the story, dialogue, dress, portrayal of characters or even the title. Their resentment to a scene, a dialogue or a character or anything that is worthy of notice runs on familiar lines: The community’s sentiments are hurt. Nobody dare to challenge such claims as the embers of controversy could inflame sentiments, feelings and traditional beliefs. In a majority of cases, film directors and producers accede to the lumpen elements’ demands to avoid a bigger controversy or resolve the issue behind the scenes.

Rajamouli is facing such a situation in Karnataka when his fans are eagerly awaiting Baahubali 2. Several Kannada organizations are up in arms against the film’s release as they claim Sathyaraj is a supporter of Tamil Nadu in Cauvery water row. Vatal Nagaraj, the organizations’ leader and a former MLA, has called for a day-long bandh on April 28 to protest against Sathyaraj’s remarks, apparently made nine years ago. The bandh call would be revoked if Sathyaraj tenders an unconditional apology.

In effect, what it means is, if Sathyaraj does not accede to the protesters’ demand, the film won’t be allowed to be released in Karnataka, causing a heavy loss of revenue, particularly in Bangalore where the movie is expected to be released in Telugu, Kannada and Hindi in multiplexes.

Nevertheless, Nagaraj has made his stand clear. He told the media in Bangalore on Thursday: “Our dissent is not against the movie Baahubali, but against Sathyaraj, who had made derogatory comments about Kannadigas and Karnataka leaders. We want him to apologise to the people of Karnataka and only then will we allow the screening.”

Obviously piqued by Nagaraj’s stance, Rajamouli said, “Sathyaraj had made those remarks nine years ago and till now, around 30 films starring him have been released in the state (Karnataka). Linking his old remarks with the current scenario and posing an obstacle to the release of movie is not in the interest of the industry.”

Like any director or producer who stands on moral ground, Rajamouli has a point. Why rake up a decade-old issue concerning an actor who happened to be a key player in his anticipated blockbuster now, that too at the time of release.

The immediate thought that flashes in our minds is where were the agitators when Baahubali 1 was running to packed houses all over Karnataka? The acclaimed (or reviled?)  Kattappa (Sathyaraj) was very much there in the film. Nobody remembered or recalled his anti-Kannadiga comments at that time. Only now they had been dug out of history to stop the film’s screening!

The drama being enacted by some Kannada organizations reeks of an ulterior motive. Industry sources attribute it to the super success that the film is going to be and everyone wants to have a slice of the cake by hook or by crook.

Obviously, there is more to the protest agitation than meets the eye. Press reports suggest that the film had not been sold to any local distributors. Instead, producers themselves are said to have been releasing it, a move that has enraged the small Kannada film industry.

Ironically, Kattappa alias Sathyaraj has unwittingly become a villain of the piece in the release of Baahubali 2 in Karnataka. A spin-off was a promotional event scheduled to be held on Thursday in Bangalore was cancelled.

The film’s release in that state looks packed with as much suspense as the sequel itself!

Rajamouli Urges Kannadigas To Allow Bahubali Screening

As pro-Kannada groups called for a Karnataka bandh on the release date of Bahubali 2, the director of the film SS Rajamouli released a video on social media urging them to allow the screening.

Hyderabad: As the release date of Magnum Opus of Indian cinema, ‘Bahubali2: the Conclusion’ is fast approaching, the controversial comments of actor Satyaraj about nine years ago are creating  problems for the film in Karnataka. On Wednesday, pro-Kannada groups called for a Karnataka bandh on April 28 to protest against the screening of the film.

Sensing the problem, SS Rajamouli the director of the film released a new video statement in social media seeking the support of Kannadigas to release the film. Saying they were aware that the comments made by Satyaraj hurt the sentiments of many Kannada friends, he clarified that they were his personal views and neither he (Rajamouli)nor the producers of Bahubali agree with them or  support them.

As the comments were made almost nine years ago, he urged them not to target the film. He also explained that many of Satyaraj’s films including Bahubali-1 were released in Karnataka. He further said, since Satyaraj is neither director nor producer of the movie, he wouldn’t suffer any losses if the film is stalled in Karnataka.

“It is unfair to target the movie because of some comments he made. I request everyone to support Bahubali 2 like part one.”

He said he had spoken to Satyaraj  and informed  him of the situation and clarified that they have nothing to do with his comments.

Explaining that the film and those who worked for it do not have anything to do with the issue, he requested the protestors and Kannadigas to not to put all the crew in trouble. He also expressed his helplessness that he doesn’t have the power to do anything other than making a humble appeal. Some comments on Cauvery water issue also have been talked about in the context of the agitation against the movie.

Baahubali 2 Mega Show: Rajamouli Touches Millions Of Hearts

Hyderabad: Ramoji Film City was the venue of a great show, first of its kind in film industry, on Sunday, March 26, when Bahubali-2 audio function was held. Members of the unit and a number of celebrities participated in the proceedings. All the members of the Bahubali unit were present for the last time before Mahishmati ceased to exist.. Producers Y Shibu and Prasad Devineni, actors Prabhas, Rana, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishna and were present. The event was compered by Suma. Veteran actor and politician Krishnam Raju and famous director Raghavendra Rao participated in the programme.

The programme went on well for three hours , every member praising his or her co- stars, technicians for their team work, for keeping their heart and soul together for 5 years to complete the magnum opus, Bahubali.

Rajamouli was compared with Hollywood directors Stephen Spielberg, James Cameron, Christopher Nolan and beyond by Karan Johar. He also said it took more than 67 years to experience a film like Moghul-E-Azam. Most heartening moment for Tollywood and ace director Rajamouli is when Karan said, “I want to go home and teach actors that this is what pure dedication to cinema is all about”. For a Tollwyood director getting praise from a Bollywood director is something to cherish for the entire film industry. Rajamouli simply stood and heard Karan’s words with folded hands like a school boy. It enhanced the popular respect for him.

But who can forget the scene which won millions of hearts? It was not shot for a film or made up with graphics. Encomiums from the bottom of the heart poured out for the director, who spent more than five years for an epic which raised the status of Tollywood to an International level, say Hollywood level.

M.M.Keeravani, music maestro, said prior to the function that there will be a small AV on Rajamouli which was not shown to the director himself and kept secret until then. Even Rajamouli took it in a lighter vein as if it is truly a small AV. But when it was displayed on the screen,which was comp[osed and penned by Keeravani himself, which included Rajamouli’s incredible vision, he could not stop his tears and emotion, with the entire stadium erupting with a standing ovation saluting the extraordinary director.

Emotional chord struck more deeply when Rajamouli’s daughter Mayukha, came on to the dais and celebrated the emotional moments with tears of joy. We see a perfect dedication, unassuming humility and great respect for elders in Rajamouli. This is touching for a person who achieved huge success in life. Rajamouli started his career with a TV serial, Shanti Nivasam, and now Rajamouli’s name is ringing bells all over the globe. Baahubali-2 is surely a proud Indian film whose collections will touch ₹ 1000 crores. Even before the release of the mega film, Rajamouli touched millions of hearts with his simplicity ,respect and humility shown at Audio function.

Primepost.in wishes him many more successes in life and it is proud to see a Tollywood director achieving rare fete and etching a place of pride in Indian film history.

Bahubali 2 release in Kannada/Karnataka doubtful

Hyderabad: Maverick director SS Rajamouli is firm to release Bahubali-2 (The Conclusion) next month and as a prelude released the theatrical trailer. The trailer has gone viral not only in India but also in the world. It has achieved huge number of clicks and it has earned the name as the No. 2 in the history of the film to achieve highest number of clicks. However, the situation in Karnataka is something rough for the movie.

A pro-Kannada group has launched a protest in Bellary over the screening of Bahubali trailer in Karnataka. The reason is the negative speech of Satyaraj over the Cauvery water issue. Those adverse remarks did not gel well with a group of Kannadigas. So Karnataka Rakahana Vedike, held a protest in Karnataka in this regard. It may be mentioned here that Satyaraj played a prominent role as Kattappa in the movie. So the members of the group raised anti-Satyaraj slogans. The group is also demanding the ban of Bahubali film featuring Satyaraj in Karnataka state.

Special set erected for Bahubali-2 audio launch

Hyderabad: Arka Media Works, which is producing director SS Rajamouli’s magnam opus movie, Bahubali-2 (The Conclusion), is planning to unveil the audio at a grand function on March 26.

Earlier, it was planned to hold the event in Mahishmati Kingdom set erected for the movie deep inside of the Ramoji Film City at a sprawling place. However, they dropped the idea as the audience who wish to watch the event may not go so deep inside as Ramoji Film City to reach the dais as it is quite a restricted area.

Hence the film-makers have made efforts to erect a special set near the entrance of Ramoji Film City, to facilitate the audiences reach the venue without any hassles. Prior to this, the producers are thinking of theatrical trailer of the movie on March 16.  However, the actual film will hit the screens on April 28.
