Even as audience eagerly wait for Baahubali 2 to release later this year, there is one question that every fan wants answers to – Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?
Since the release of the movie Baahubali in 2015, this question has not only gone viral but as become a cult with many Kattappa vs. Baahubali memes and thousands of online jokes on this topic.
So ahead of Baahubali 2 release Anupama Chopra once again asked this question to film’s Kattappa that is veteran actor Sathyaraj, who for a change was in the mood to answer.
Not only did he answer Anupama’s question, but also gave an answer that we have heard before,
“Because my director told me to.”
The same answer was given by Baahubali director SS Rajamouli last year when during an interview he had said,
“Kattappa killed Baahubali because I asked him to.”
Though adding a little more to this answer, Sathyaraj said that everyone in the world is asking him the same thing, but he has not even told his family the actual answer.
“I have been in the industry for over 40 years. It is not ethical to reveal climax or the crucial part of the story. I knew the character would become famous but had no idea that it would gain so much popularity across the nation. Even memes were being made on the different situations. Like when demonetisation happened, there were memes on my character and the question that why Kattappa killed Baahubali. I feel happy about it.”
Well, that might be the case Sathyaraj, but I guess the audience still would want to know why Rahamouli wanted Kattappa to kill Baahubali.
I guess they will just have to watch Baahubali 2, which has aptly been titled – Baahubali: The Conclusion.
