Rajamouli's Baahubali, spread over two films, is set in the fictional Mahishmathi kingdom. Bhallal Deva (Rana Daggubati) schemes to get his cousin Amarendra Baahubali (played by Prabhas) killed. Two decades later, his son Mahendra Baahubali (also Prabhas) returns to avenge his father and reclaim the throne of Mahishmathi. Baahubali also stars Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia.
Baahubali: The Beginning released in 2015 while Baahubali: The Conclusion released last year and destroyed several box office records. The Hindi version of the film made Rs 500 crore.
