Well it seems like the nation wants to know why Kattappa killed Bahubali? The question can be seen in every social media platform as people are just not willing to hold their breath for next year, when the second installment of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali part 2-the conclusion’ releases.
There are many theories going on, and here are some we picked up:
First is very evident as anyone could guess. Kattappa is helpless and was forced to serve Bhallala. Bahubali steps down as king for Devasena for love and gets married to her. As Baahubali broke Rajamata’s promise, he has been asked to step down. Bhallala then orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali.
Another theory says that Kattappa is lying that he actually killed Bahubali. May be that’s because Rajamata had told him to claim Bahubali’s death as the kingdom might go to the ministers if they found out that their king Bhallala is a murderer. May be Ballala killed Bahubali to get Devasena.
Another story states that Kattappa being a warload, he cannot stab someone from behind and may be something happened to his eyes and he cant see, so he stabbed Bahubali by mistake.
Some say that it could be that Bhallala captures his own mother and blackmails Kattappa to kill Bahubali in lieu of setting Rajmata free.
And last may be that it is because of Rajamata? May be Bhallala goes and gives Rajamata a moral lecture that she should be on his side and she orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali. This theory does support the fact because during the start of the movie she says only she must be punished for her sins, and not the child.
