The Kannada Grahakara Okkoota, a Karnataka group, has started an online campaign demanding the release of a Kannada version of Baahubali – The Conclusion. With the campaign gaining momentum, there are chances that the makers of the film may dub the magnum opus in Kannada too.
The Kannada film industry is not very keen on films from other languages being dubbed in Kannada, which has kept several films from being dubbed. However, with high popular demand for Baahubali 2, the film could become an exception. There has been no official word from the filmmakers on this move yet, however.
Baahubali 2 is currently in the post production stage, with the VFX work being completed by teams in several countries across the globe. The big budget film, directed by SS Rajamouli, has a bevy of stars including Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka, Tammanna, and Sathyaraj. K Vijayendra Prasad has penned the story for this period flick and Rajamouli has written the screenplay.
Produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under the banner Arka Media Works, the film is getting ready for a big release on April 28. As of now, plans are on to release Baahubali – the Conclusion in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. But with the demand for Kannada version, the filmmakers will have to take a call.
