Prabhas in Baahubali The Conclusion

During a recent interaction with a leading daily, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan opened up about the phenomenal success attained by the Baahubal saga in the Hindi belt and made a few valid point.

He said that Hindi dubbed version of the SS Rajamouli-directed film fared well at the box office as the Bollywood audience is always ready to accept all types of films. Moreover, he stressed that Bollywood films can’t do such business in the South as fans there are always loyal to their favourites.

“The most amazing thing about Baahubali’s success is that the Hindi audiences are so accepting. They have made a Telugu film so large, even though they do not know south heroes apart from three or four of them. South audiences know us there; yet, our films do not do that volume of business because their fans have an extraordinary sense of loyalty to their actors. Fan following is very strong — if there is a Kamal Haasan fan, then he will be a Kamal fan forever; Rajinikanth fan will be a Rajinikanth fan for life,” he added.

In case you didn’t know, the Baahubali saga revolved around the war between two brothers over an ancient kingdom and featured Prabhas in the lead. ‘Baaahubali 2’—which was released 2 years after the first part—hit screens this April and fared well at the box office while receiving rave reviews along the way.

On a related note, this is a busty time for ‘Bhai’. He is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Tubelight’ Directed by Kabir Khan, it will hit screens this Eid.


    God!! Salman you realize half of your so called indian blockbusters are remakes of telugu mmovies? We have already watched it many years before you made them into super horrible remakes. And yes, we do accept northern movies, chakde india, dangal and even your bajrangi are such examples. Keep your cliched and stupid Prem ratans, wanted, readys to your craving fans, we cant watch such crap!!




    i dont thonk it is correct to begin your comment that it is a dubbed does it matter ..even you do re recording and you dont use your pilot rcording all this are film techniques…you shot the movie in kashmir for bajirangi bhaijaan when the story is in ceb=ntral pak…so its fine .so dont underestimate a movie just because it is dubbed
    even you had a film called were not able to give a good look as a king or prince…so it mahendra bahubalis role prabas was good
    he is a hulk but look human
    you are a hulk with slight arrogance .. imagine yourself in the role of mahendra bahubali..hrithik ok

    salman ,anyways youy are a good actor so appreciate good film and dont do regional politics…may be you look nice and polite
    all the best

    there is a chance to prove brshetty and act in mahabharatha


    south indian audiences accept good realistic stories ,not always indo pak slaman -kabir types.high time you stoip making same types.and make realistic family stories like your first film..stop this north south crying episode bhai


    What a dumbo!!! It’s because the film is good, the north Indian audience accepted it. Since Dangal was good, it was accepted by south Indians too. Make sensible films and everyone will accept it irrespective of North or South or East or West.
