Baahubali: The Beginning left everyone with just one question on their minds – why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? And it seems that PM Modi too wasn’t left untouched by the Baahubali frenzy.
In the run-up to the Uttar Pradesh elections, the PM had referred to the film – and Kattappa – while campaigning in Mau. Now, after the trailer of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion released on Thursday, the video of his speech has gone viral.
Saying Uttar Pradesh had become a safe haven for baahubalis (criminals-turned-politicans), the PM declared in the poll rally that things are all set to change. “In a recent film, a character called Kattappa destroyed Baahubali,” he said.
Then, amid loud cheers, he said BJP’s Mau candidate, too, had the power to take on baahubalis.
We hope that the sequel, too, finds its way into Modi’s speeches. In the meantime, take a look at this video of his ‘Baahubali’ speech:
