Baahubali 2: The Conclusion star Prabhas could not go to sleep for two days after the release of his film.
Katappa (Sathyaraj) was the loyal commander of the Mahishmati empire. His job was to protect the king, the queen and ensure that ther orders were always addressed. In Baahubali: The Beginning, Katappa was shown to be very close to Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas). The latter even called Katappa 'mama' (uncle).
As such, when Katappa was seen thrusting his sword through Baahubali from behind his back, the audience got the shock of their lives. Baahubali: The Beginning ended with this cliffhanger and over the next two years, the audience went crazy wondering, "Why Katappa killed Baahubali?"
So, answers were obviously expected from Baahubali: The Conclusion, the recently released sequel, and yes, it did deliver. Fans all over India booked advanced tickets, caught the earliest shows and even watched the film multiple times by now and "Why Katappa killed Baahubali" is no longer a mystery.
But the solution to the mystery has come at price. After giving four years of his career to Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Prabhas still has not been able to take rest. Post the release of the film, he has been sleepless for close to 48 hours.
A source close to the film's production told DNA that Prabhas has been busy receiving calls and responding to message ever since the film released.
"Over the weekend, he was surrounded with his friends and family. After giving four years to the film, he has now got the chance to be with his folks completely so he is making the most of the time. He also wants to catch a show and witness the love that the film is receiving along with the audience. Even Prabhas's didn't know the reason as to why did Kattapa kill Baahubali and watched the film to find out why," the source said.
According to reports, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has already crossed Rs 450 crore worldwide. The sequel sees Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan reprising their roles from the first film.
