In an exciting development, his critically-acclaimed ‘Baahubali 2’ was screened at TIFF Romania recently and received a standing ovation from those in attendance. Apparently, the audience absolutely fell in love with the on screen daredevilry and gave it the proverbial thumbs up.
Reacting to the same, Rajamouli took to Twitter and said that he was overwhelmed by how a new audience showered such a lot of love on his magnum opus.
“Last night open air screening at Cluj, Romania for TIFF. Felt nice to see a completely different audience clapping for every Amarendra Baahubali Heroic moment,” he said.
Well, we must say that this kind of proves that the ‘Baahubali’ saga is truly a global sensation.
In case you did not know, ‘Baahubali 2’ hit screens this April nearly two years after the release of the first part. Needless to say, it emerged a runaway hit at the ticket window and shattered many records along the way. Touted to be an epic-drama, it featured Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in the lead while Rana essayed the role of the antagonist. The supporting cast included names such as Nassar, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan.
Interestingly, Prabhas dedicated nearly five years of his life to the ‘Baahubali’ saga. In order to do justice to the film, he worked on his physique and followed a strict diet. Well, now, it can safely be said that his efforts have paid off.
