As ‘Baahubali’ celebrates its 6th anniversary, here are a few things that the fans of the franchise did creatively in order to show their love and appreciation for the movie. Check ‘em out right here.


Going down memory lane, the era of ‘Baahubali 2’ was something the cinemagoers had never experienced. Having opened in 2017, it became the biggest hit in the history of Indian cinema at that time – a feat which was later on just overtaken by ‘Dangal’. This is the level of fandom ‘Baahubali’ enjoys. Enthralling the audience with some spectacular performances, ‘Baahubali 2’ captivated the audience with Prabhas and Rana Daggubati’s outstanding performances, sending goosebumps down the audience’s spines and keeping them riveted to their seats until the very conclusion of the movie.

Today on ‘Baahubali 2’s 6th anniversary, here are a few occasions when ‘Baahubali's fandom shook the world:

Baahubali Murthi

Going far and wide, the character of Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali in the massive hit ‘Baahubali 2’ has greatly moved and inspired its audience, and as a result, for the first time ever there were murthis produced that resembled Lord Ganesha sitting with a tiger and resting one hand on his neck, which looked similar to ‘Baahubali’s iconic stance in the movie. All ‘Baahubali 2’ fans across the nation manufactured a ton of these murthis during the Ganeshotsav and they sold like hotcakes on the occasion.

Baahubali Fire Crackers

Diwali, the festival of lights and joy, was also observed by ‘Baahubali’s admirers as the market was flooded with large, giant-sized fireworks featuring the two towering stars from the movie – Rana Daggubati and Prabhas, showcasing their great strength and power to the world.

Baahubali Thali

When it comes to expressing their appreciation for ‘Baahubali’, no foodies are left behind. All the food enthusiasts got up with the idea of generating enormous size food platters with good amounts of portions of all their favourite foods in one serving to show the film their affection. They did so by creating a new range of Baahubali thalis for their restaurant menus.

Baahubali Puppets

The two ‘Baahubali’ stars' fandom knew no bounds after the release of the second part. Be it the older generation or the youth or even the children – all age groups expressed their love in their own special ways for ‘Baahubali’. One of these was the introduction of these incredibly cute puppets made especially for the young Prabhas and Rana Daggubati fans out there.

Baahubali Special Menu

The fans of the movie have created everything from Baahubali drinks to Baahubali sandwiches to Baahubali dosas and more. The fans of Prabhas, the hero of the magnum opus film, and Rana Daggubati, the villain of the opulent film left no stone unturned. People have been seen enjoying large-size Baahubali food items and relishing on them with utmost love and dedication.

A prequel to ‘Baahubali’ was in the making which would have encompassed the life of ‘Shivagami’. It was to be released in the form of a web series. But after quite a considerable portion of the shoot, the project was shelved. There’s no clarity as to why it was done, and whether or not it will again be revived. However, even after 6 years of the movie getting released, fans still want to see more and more of the world of ‘Baahubali’.
