SS Rajamouli's magnum opus 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' is by far India's top most grosser and that movie has worked wonders across seas. Hollywood filmmaker Scott Derrickson of 'Doctor Strange' fame, shared a fight scene from the film, impressed by its direction. Sharing the clip on micro-blogging site, he wrote, "Behold, India's 'Baahubali 2'!" The clip was originally shared by a Twitter user with a caption that said, "The full scene with sound is just the greatest scene I've ever watched."

The said scene shows actor Prabhas' character Mahendra Baahubali launching an attack on Bhallaladeva's fort in Mahismati by landing on its terrace with a rather innovative technique. Reacting to the video, a user commented to the post, “I spent a day and watched both of these back to back. Honestly, loved them a lot. A lot of heart poured into making two epic movies oozing pure entertainment.” A viewer from Canada wrote, “I loved both of these movies. Had such a blast watching them two years ago when they first arrived on Netflix Canada. I have been recommending them to all my friends.” One more user wrote, “Watched this for the first time recently and I absolutely lost my mind.”

'Baahubali: The Conclusion' (also called 'Baahubali 2') was the follow up of 'Baahubali: The Beginning' and broke all records during its initial release in April 2017 by collecting £170 million worldwide. It was the first film that collected the fastest £10 million at the box office in India. Besides Prabhas, it also starred Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nassar in prominent roles.
