The trailer of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was launched at an event in Mumbai today. But fans got hold of it online a few hours before the official launch. According to an IANS report, the leak happened due to a technical glitch in Facebook. Director SS Rajamouli also confirmed that the leak was not a case of piracy, but still quite disappointing.

SS Rajamouli, Filmmaker (as reported by IANS)Piracy is different, and a leak is totally different. We are still trying to find out how the trailer leak happened. It is very irritating for the entire team but we can’t blame anyone without knowing everything about the leak.
The trailer launch was scheduled for 5 PM on Thursday, but thanks to the leak of the film’s Tamil trailer, the makers were forced to release all its versions online, which was not as per what they had planned for the its promotion.
At the trailer launch, Rajamouli said that the sequel will be bigger and better than the original. Karan Johar told the media that he didn’t have creative inputs to offer in the film’s making but he’s only too glad to be associated with such a great film, simply by lending his banner’s name.
