Telugu writer Rajani Sakuntala custom-ordered 50 Baahubali themed sarees from a printing mill in Andhra Pradesh, for herself and her close friends to wear to the premiere of Baahubali 2.
When Sakuntala posted a picture of herself and her friends wearing the saree, the post went sort of viral, with several fans wanting to know how they could order one of these Baahubali themed sarees.

Charged up by the response, the women are now planning to make 500 more Baahubali themed sarees.
While the first fifty sarees featured Devasena (Anushka Shetty) and Amarendra Bahubali (Prabhas) on the saris, Sakuntala says the next 500 sarees will feature Bhallaladeva (Rana Daggubatti) and Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan)…well, not sure if the women would prefer this set (my wife says even she would prefer the one with Prabhas and Anushka).
What about having Tamannaah Bhatia on the sarees?
Well, it seems, after Tamannaah Bhatia went missing (almost) in Bahubali 2, she wouldn’t be seen in the future editions of the Bahubali saree as well.
So go ahead and order this Baahubali themed saree, you can definitely give the Banarasi sari a miss, once in a while.
