You are well aware that the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli has got this special knack of keeping all the people guessing whenever his project is on the anvil. But this time, the expectations, speculations, discussions, debates are touching the sky thanks to his magnum opus Baahubali.

Currently, Rajamouli is busy with the unveiling of the posters introducing his characters and this has given rise to a new speculation. It is being said that Baahubali seems to have taken inspiration from the great epic Mahabharata. They are referring to Shivudu as Dharmaraju who stood up for his ideals.

They are relating Devasena like insulted Draupadi, Sivagami like Kunti, Kalakeya like Bakaasura, Bijjaladeva like Sakuni. Though story may not be the same but the establishing of characters seem to have this similarity and only Rajamouli can do such remarkable feats. That way, it is more like a parallel Mahabharata.
