The ‘Baahubali’ franchise was an unforgettable experience. Spectacular scenes. An engrossing storyline. And above all, the movie had ferocious and powerful characters that fascinated us.
Besides the character of Baahubali, it was Kattappa’s role, played by Sathyaraj, that became iconic and touched people’s heart.
Much to your surprise, the ‘bad man’ of Bollywood, Gulshan Grover, believes that he would have done more justice to Kattapa’s character.
Gulshan Grover, after watching ‘Baahubali 2’, gave his honest review to a daily newspaper. Though he praised Rajamouli’s beautiful vision, he also added that the character of Kattapa would have “excelled” more, had he played it.
When I saw Baahubali, I felt Rajamouli had wonderfully penned the character of Kattappa. And the second thing that came to my mind is that I would have played the role better. Had I got the opportunity, the character would have excelled more.
No doubt Gulshan Grover is a very fine actor, and he has achieved a legendary status with his quintessential negative roles. But it is kind of offbeat to imagine him as a gutsy Kattapa. Right? What do you say, folks?
