Few months ago, SS Rajamouli had given a casting call for his upcoming movie, Baahubali. The response for this call was huge and over 13000 applications were received. Rajamouli was initially very excited with the response but now it all turned out as a nightmare for the ace director.

"Over The last month Short listed about 2000 applicants.asked then to attend auditions. Surprisingly Half of them didn’t turn up..After auditions, selected about 50 guys and started training. After 2 days half of them disappeared…Short listing 2000 ppl from 13000 was a daunting task.. We just couldn’t handle more, so had to block.. Apologies there," S S Rajamouli posted on Twitter.

Baahubali is bringing Prabhas and Anushka Shetty together for the third time. Rana Daggubati is said to be doing a negative role in the film. The movie, which is being produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under Arka Media banner, will be presented by K Raghavendra Rao. Keeravani will be scoring the music.
