Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, First Look at 18th Jio MAMI Film Festival with STAR

After watching the National Award winning film Baahubali, everyone was left with the same question, “Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?” They had to wait for the sequel to get the answer. Or else head for the Jio MAMI Movie Mela (fair) with Star, which has two days dedicated to popular Indian cinema. One of the major highlights there is the first look of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, which will be showcased on October 22, 2016, the first day of the two-day event, at Rang Mandir, Bandra.

The Movie Mela will host the cast of Baahubali 2 who will share their experiences on the making of the movie, a historical fiction, directed by S. S. Rajamouli, which has garnered an unbelievable fan following. There, the Baahubuli team will also launch the teaser to a virtual reality spin-off film, set around the world of Baahubali, and give the audience a sneak-peak into a game and comic, based on the epic franchise.

Expected to be present on the occasion are

 Director, SS Rajamouli

 Producer, Shobu Yarlagadda

 Protagonist, Prabhas who plays the role of Shivudu/Baahubali

 Rana Daggubati, who plays the role of Bhallala Deva/Pallvalathevan

 Anushka Shetty, who plays the role of Devasena

 Tamannaah, who plays the role of Avanthika

 Raja Koduri, who heads the VFX Department

Baahubali: The Beginning became one of the biggest, top grossing movies of 2015. The Telugu version of the movie bagged the Best Feature Film-Golden Lotus Award, and the Best Special Effects at the 63rd National Film Awards. Baahubali is India’s biggest motion picture and is the largest worldwide release of any Indian film, in different languages.
