Baahubali was released in two parts in 2015 and in 2017 as Baahubali: The Conclusion. The film was dubbed in multiple languages to attract a pan-Indian audience and went on to become a worldwide sensation. KV Vijayendra Prasad wrote the screenplay, while KK Senthil Kumar was the cinematographer.

The News Minute reported that Baahubali: The Conclusion premiered at the British Film Institute and was the inaugural film at 39th Moscow International Film Festival. It was also a part of Indian Film Festival of India 2017’s Indian Panorama section.
In August, Prabhas had said that he was unsure whether there would be another instalment in the franchise. “If SS Rajamouli wants to do part 3, he should get excited. He only gave me 6 scripts, so he would have done some 10-14. We almost finished 60 percent there. I know he had the script in mind for 5 years. But I don’t know if Baahubali 3 will happen or not,” the actor had told Rajeev Masand in an interview for News18.
