Darling Prabhas who has dedicated nearly 5 years to Baahubali is finally relieved now. Prabhas is into Baahubali 2 promotions and has to say more about the film.

Finally you are relieved from Baahubali after nearly 5 years. How is the feeling.

I am still with Baahubali. I can say that after the release of Baahubali, I can think of anything else.

How tensed are you for the release.

I can say that I am more relaxed now than tensed. I am curious to know audience reaction. We have confident product in hand. More than Baahubali 2, we are tensed about Baahubali 1. This is where we pumped lots of money, energy, time not knowing anything about result.

How passionate are Baahubali producers

Like i said, they pumped in lot of money without knowing anything about returns. For a film like Baahubali, only hit is not enough, it has to be blockbuster. Still, Baahubali being a blockbuster, producers haven't pocketed much. Such huge money they spent on the film. It shows how passionate they are.

Now that Why Kattappa killed Baahubali is a huge question. How do you think will audience receive it.

Frankly saying we didn't expect Why Kattappa killed Baahubali to be a huge question. We thought that it will be a nice twist to end first part. Now, that question is haunting us these two years. This question cannot be answered just like that. The reason is explained in about 20 scenes.

There are still many questions to be answered

Rajamouli has divided these two parts very cleverly. First part introduces characters. There are lot of questions to be answered. Director VV Vinayak once asked how Baahubali became such a huge hit despite the fact that there are so many unanswered questions.

You have played two characters in the movie. Which one is more difficult ?

It was easier to play Shivudu, not that it is easy character but Shivudu reacts more on his instincts. He does what he thinks. He goes to Mahismati without having much knowledge of coming factors. He lifts Shiva Lingam just like that. On the other hand, Amarendra Baahubali is more realistic. He has more responsibilities. He cannot act upon his instinct. He has a particular way to do it.

When did you realise that Baahubali is more bigger than you expected

Rajamouli has the thought of doing a larger than life with me in kingdom, war genre. He has 4-5 lines including the one of Krishna Devaraya. But somehow Rajamouli didn't excite much. Then came Baahubali story line. More of a story, Baahubali was developed from characters. I thought that Baahubali is going to be huge. But when Rajamouli narrated me waterfall scene I thought that it was bigger than expected. I personally believe that waterfall scene came much better than any Hollywood movie.

That concludes our interview..
