North Indian Audience reactions to Baahubali: The Conclusion are priceless. Just look at the public response videos from the Bollywood media sources on YouTube and you will get to know how awestruck they were with Rajamouli’s cinematic brilliance.
Everyone is going gaga over Prabhas who has made a lasting impression as Amarendra Baahubali.
If Baahubali: The Beginning introduced Prabhas to Bollywood audience, The Conclusion has made him a star.
Most of the female audiences are saying that they have come to watch Prabhas in action. None of our Southern heroes were able to garner this level of attention from the Northies.
Prabhas is a national star now and he could continuously tap the Bollywood market if he could do movies with universal appeal.
Prabhas’s next film Saaho also will have pan India release. However, it may not be able to create the buzz on par with Baahubali.
Prabhas and the makers of Saaho should concentrate upon getting the attention of North Indian movie lovers, especially Baahubali fans.
Having said that, Prabhas cannot do Baahubalis all the time. Therefore, if Prabhas can get good reception in North India with regular action/masala films then he could solidify his market in Bollywood.
