The director once again took to Twitter to offer an official statement and stated that he plans on making Baahubali 3. He clarified though that it wouldn’t be a sequel to the first two parts but could be a spin-off.
Initially, SS Rajamouli had planned to make Baahubali as a one-part feature film. But, as the shoot of the film progressed, he decided to film and release it in two parts.
Released in theaters on 10 July, 2015, Baahubali: The Beginning has become one of the highest grossing Indian movies of all time. It has also been acclaimed in China and Japan.
