Maverick director SS Rajamouli is currently busy wrapping up the shooting of the second installment in the Baahubali franchise.
After months of planning and rehearsing, shooting of the much anticipated climax portion of a war sequence from the film commenced on June 13 in a specially designed set erected by art director Sabu Cyril at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.
The shooting had been going on without any interruption; however, on the last day of the shoot on Tuesday, the team was caught off-guard when a sudden downpour disrupted proceedings. Since the team was shooting in an outdoor location, they had no choice but to cancel the entire shoot for the day.
The team instead utilized the time and decided to play cricket on the set. Rajamouli posted the following tweet:

The team plans to wrap up the entire shoot by September and immediately commence work on the post-production.
Baahubali series is bankrolled by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under Arka Mediaworks banner. The second installment is all set to hit the screens on April 28 next year.
