According to reports doing rounds in media, there are no court cases or petitions lodged on upcoming magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ being directed by Rajamouli. Reacting on the rumours that a Karanataka Jain Mutt lodged petition on Baahubali producers to immediately withdraw the title of the flick, producer Shobu Yarlagadda has given clarity.

Denying all such rumours in existence, Shobu stated that they haven’t received any such complaint and even though if there is any complaint, he says Baahbuali is not copied content. ‘Baahubali story has got nothing to do with the story of Jain guru Baahubali who is worshipped as Gomateshwara. This is a pure fictional story written and developed by Rajamouli’s team, but not copied from Jain history’, said Shobu Yarlagadda. Earlier, a Jain Mutt is said to have filed complaint objecting title and story of Baahubali.

After taking a small break, Rajamouli and his team finally started filming of much anticipated battle sequence at Ramoji Film city. Along with Prabhas, Rana, Anushka and Sesh Adivi, as many as 2000 junior artistes are taking part in this shoot.
