Fans’ support made us cruise through obstacles: Rajamouli

Chennai, May 1 (PTI) Filmmaker SS Rajamouli has thanked “Baahubali” fans for making the film a huge success.

The 43-year-old director, who is being praised for his grand vision, said it was only natural that a big project like “Baahubali: The Conclusion” would face problems during its release but fans were always by their side.

The sequel to the 2015 film ran into trouble in Karnataka when veteran actor Sathyaraj’s comments on Cauvery water issue resurfaced online after nine years. Sathyaraj, who played Kattappa in the film, and Rajamouli had to come up with statement to resolve the matter.

“It’s only natural that a big project like ‘Baahubali’ faces hurdles during release. I must say that the enormous love and support that was given by Baahubali fans made us cruise through obstacles.

“Thank you everyone who has been with us for the past five years encouraging us at every turn. You have given us such a big success that we can keep it in our hearts for the rest of our lives,” Rajamouli tweeted.

Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Ramya Krishnan, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia, “Baahbali: The Conclusion” released last week.

The film has emerged one of the biggest hits of Indian cinema by breaking the opening day box office records with its impressive collection of Rs 121 crore.
