South Indian sensation and actor par excellence Prabhas, who is celebrating his birthday today, received 6000 proposals while shooting for the “Baahubali” franchise- a project that broke all Bollywood records and fetched the top honours at film awards including the National Film Award for wholesome entertainment.
Apart from the ruggedly good looks of the actor, another aspect about the film that made headlines and created ripples was the dialogue ‘Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara’. It became the most obvious question in the movie circle after the first part of the film, “Baahubali: The Beginning”, was released in the year 2017.
S. S Rajamouli, the director of the film, succeeded in creating a suspenseful climax and the question not only became the national discussion on social media for two long years till part two came but also invited rib-tickling jokes.
As Prabhas turns 41 today, let’s ask some of the TV stars how they relived the memories of their days with this mystery.
Suraj Kakkar, who has been part of shows like 'Lajwanti' and 'Sanyukt': I believe it went on to become one of the most searched questions on search engines. Post watching the movie, apart from the fact that I was completely in awe of how splendid the movie was, I was also perplexed. It became an internet sensation. I think the sequel was truly the one of most awaited movies. And of course, I asked my friends and family that " Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara?" and I think they asked me the same question too and it was such a cliff hanger I mean you go through that movie and you do not expect that ending and it's just right there. Like regardless of age group and ethnicity, everybody knew about that movie. It was trending on Twitter and there were countless Facebook threads in it. Conspiracy theories were made by fan fiction artists.
'Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat' Hai fame Subuhii Joshii: Of course, how can I not. I have annoyed my brother so much by asking him "Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara?" When this movie came, everyone was only talking about Baahubali and Katappa and I feel everyone must have asked this question to at least one person. My brother has also troubled me a lot by asking this question.
Akshit Sukhija, who plays the lead in 'Shubharambh': Honestly, I have not asked this question to anyone, but a lot of people have asked me "Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara?" and I had no answer.
Kunal Thakkur, who was seen in 'Pyar Tune Kya Kiya': My entire family is a Baahubali fan and I feel its a great family entertainer...my mom usually has an answer for everything so she is the one who I asked this question and this is the one time she didn't have an answer.
