The audience, who were bowled over by Baahubali: The Beginning, is eagerly waiting to know "why Kattappa killed Baahubali?". Recently, the makers had released the trailer of the most anticipated flick in four languages - Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi, only to become the most-viewed Indian movie trailer.
