Day 2 of JLF was starstruck! After Rishi Kapoor talked about his biography, Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored, the team of one of the highest grossing Indian films, Baahubali, unveiled the poster of their upcoming book, “The Rise Of Shivagami.”

Present on the dais were Anand Neelakantan, Author of the book, SS Rajmouli, Director Of Baahubali, Actor Rana Daggubati, the lead antagonist, and Prasad Devineni, Producer of the film. 

Anand Neelakantan is the author of the bestselling book, Asura, and he has been famous for writing with the point of view of the antagonists. When asked why he chose to write about Shivagami, who’s one of the strongest and important characters of Baahubali, he replied,

“Yes, it’s the first time I’m writing about a positive character,” he said, “If given a choice I would’ve written a book from Bhallal Dev’s (Baahubali’s villain) point of view,” he laughed.

The moderator, Sudha Sadanand asked Rana Daggubatti (and let me tell you, the crowd went crazy. True story.) whether he had any doubts while playing an old warrior in the film.

Rana replied, “Yes, I was a bit skeptical of playing an old man, but, I was convinced of me being a warrior.”

And, I swear, I could only hear the oooohhhhhs and the aaahhhhs from all the girl fans sitting in the audience.

Oh! And talking about the girl fans, Rana Daggubatti won over our hearts with his sweet gesture when a girl fan announced her love to him. She was shivering and couldn’t speak, Rana rushed down and bent over from the stage to offer her some water.

Awww, so cute, right?
