Mumbai: With just weeks to go for 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion', starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati hits theatres, fans finally had the haunting question - Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?.
Putting the two-year-long wait to an end, actor Sathyaraj aka Kattappa, finally answered the question at the Baahubali 2 event in Hyderabad. The actor was called upon the stage to make a speech, and was asked the question that the nation wants to know so badly.
Answering sarcastically Sathyaraj said,"Producers, Shobu sir and Prasad sir paid me very well. And Rajamouli told me to kill Baahubali, so I killed him. Otherwise how can I kill Prabhas? He has been my darling since Mirchi,” he added. Mirchi is a 2003 hit film in which Prabhas and Sathyaraj acted together.
However, Baahubali team never gets annoyed at being repeatedly asked this question. Director SS Rajamouli had said that he never thought the twist would become such a phenomenal hit. “I wanted to show Kattappa killing Baahubali to give a twist to the tale at the end. I knew it will create some level of shock value among the audience but never expected it become such a rage,” he had said earlier.
