Lately you have been seeing and hearing a lot about the magnum opus Baahubali and the cluster of posters that came about. But that is not the only thing the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli is working on. He is also looking at ways and means of making the film more appealing and crisp to the audience.

As part of that, the latest update is that the duration of the first edition is being trimmed and many were wondering why. Well, here is a small secret. If the length is high, the number of daily shows will decrease and this will be a problem in standalone theatres. Sometimes, such a length could also act as a deterrent for the crowds to come to the theatres.

The makers have mentioned that first part will have two intervals so now it is being trimmed into regular duration which would be two hours fifteen minutes to twenty five minutes. The main objective behind this is also to appease the international audience who are not used to such long durations.
