Craze for ‘Baahubali’ franchise and it’s Star Cast in Japan is phenomenal. Overwhelming reception for Subba Raju aka Kumara Varma during his Jagan tour itself is a proof of it. Japanese People watching the war drama in the theaters mobbed the character artist out of admiration. They competed to interact, shake hands and click selfies with Subba Raju.
If a character artist gets such a response, Imagine what could be craze for Baahubali and Bhallaladeva in Japan. Miniature models of these two iconic characters in ‘Baahubali’ franchise are found in a theater in Japan. Even the Manga Comics version of Baahubali launched in association with top Japanese Publisher Gentosha Comics & The Rise of Sivagami novel could be seen in the background.
