Pawan Kalyan’s craze in Telugu states needs no special introduction. In many Mega family audio events and other filmy events, the Powerstar sloganeering has become quite common. Well, interestingly Pawan’s cult fan following has inspired Baahubali script writer Vijayendra Prasad to weave the engrossing interval episode in Baahubali 2.
Speaking to a leading Telugu daily, Vijayendra Prasad revealed that it was Pawan’s enviable fan following that has inspired the interval block of Baahubali 2. Vijayendra Prasad said that when he was in a dilemma about the presentation of interval scene in which Bhallaladeva was to be crowned the king of Mahishmati, he came across an audio event in which Pawan Kalyan’s fans raised the ‘Powerstar Powerstar’ slogans despite his absence. This has flattered the ace writer. Inspired by Pawan’s adulation among his followers, Vijayendra Prasad scripted the interval block in Baahubali 2.
In the meantime, Baahubali 2 is unstoppable in all territories. The film has collected 200 Crores gross on its opening day and set for a strong first weekend.
