Baahubali 2 stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati show us why they’re so good in their epic avatars Baahubali 2 : SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning was loved across all quarters for the world it created and transported us into.

The symbolism is rich: Even in the reality of man’s rebellion and his inevitable death, the Christian’s hope is in the Resurrection.
