Did you know? No theatre is supposed to open advance booking until the censor board gives its certification. How did Baahubali 2 manage in this department? Read on.

Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani was pleasantly surprised by the hype Baahubali 2 has been generating. When asked about the certification for the film he told Subash K Jha: “We are glad to report that the rule of ‘no advance booking until censor certification’ is being diligently applied by theatre exhibitors. Although the demand at the advance booking counters for Baahubali 2 is bigger than for any other Indian film in the last ten years."

A member of the board revealed to Jha that the Telugu version of the film did receive some minor cuts and had has been given the UA certificate. This means children will have to be accompanied by guardians/parents when they watch the film in theatres.

Jha spoke to another member of the CBFC board who said, "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is in every sense, bigger than the first part of the film. At almost three full hours, not a single moment sits heavily on the narrative. We haven’t cut a single frame, shot, or word from the dialogues. The action sequences have also been shot far more intricately and the special effects, especially in the war scenes are on par with the best Hollywood war epics."

Another member of the CBFC board, speaking to Jha could not contain his excitement and he describes how he felt watching the two heroes Prabhas and Rana Daggubati fighting “...the two of them are like restless lions in a cage ready to pounce".

Naturally, the next question the Board member had to answer was 'Why did Kattapa kill Baahubali?'. To do this he said, "The revelation will leave audiences stunned". An answer that further piques our curiosity.

However, as we have been following the movie craze diligently all throughout. We have got a confirmation of how the magnum opus is going to fare - Superior graphics, stunts, performances and on a magnitude that betters the film's previous instalment as well.
