‘Baahubali 2’ motion poster: Bare-chested Prabhas set to take revenge

The first look and the motion poster of ‘Baahubali 2’, the much awaited sequel of SS Rajamouli's epic fantasy drama ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ is out and it shows the bare-chested, masculine Prabhas set to take revenge of his father’s killing. He was clutched with chains and holding a sword in hand. He dons a rough look. The first look was unveiled at the ongoing MAMI film festival in Mumbai on Friday.

Prabhas has gained enormous weight to get into the skin of the character. He gained over 100 kg to enact the role.

The sequel ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ stars Rana, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia.

Rana Daggubati, the film’s antagonist, had said in an earlier interview that the “action scenes in Baahubali 2 will make the first film look small”. He added, “They have been amazingly shot and are mind blowing. We were left awestruck while filming them, so I can imagine how the audience will be blown away by them. The second film will bring a totality to the story. People will get to know why Kattapa killed Baahubali! And the other interesting aspect is the large scale, which is far bigger than the prequel’s.”

Unveiling the poster, director SS Rajamouli tweeted.
