It's been three years since SS Rajamouli's fantasy epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion released in theatres and we still can't get over the blockbuster film. Baahubali 2 has a separate fanbase as it reveals why Kattappa killed Baahubali in the first part of the franchise. On Tuesday, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Tamannaah Bhatia celebrated the "3 glorious years of the magnificent" Baahubali 2 and made their fans nostalgic. Prabhas, who played the roles of Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali in the film, shared a picture from the sets featuring Rana and SS Rajamouli and wrote: "Baahubali 2 was not just a film that the nation loved but also, the biggest film of my life. And, I'm grateful to my fans, team and director SS Rajamouli, who made it one of the most memorable projects. Baahubali 2 completes three years and I'm delighted for all the love the film and I have received."
Rana Daggubati, who played the role of arrogant and usurper Bhallaladev in the epic saga, replied to producer Shobu Yarlagadda's tweet about Baahubali 2's success and wrote: "The might, the majesty, the Mahishmathi! Miss all of you loads. #3YrsOfMightyBaahubali2."
Tamannaah, who played the role of warrior Avantika, shared a few pictures from the sets of Baahubali 2 and wrote: "Can't imagine we are already celebrating 3 glorious years of the magnificent and opulent #Baahubali2. Still remember my first day on the sets when my dream of being directed by SS Rajamouli sir came true. A big thank you to the entire team of Baahubali, who worked like a big happy family and our audiences for loving the movie and pouring in unconditional love every single day."
The pictures feature Prabhas, SS Rajamouli, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Shobu Yarlagadda.
