The people of Chennai were shocked after they returned to their seats in theaters screening Baahubali 2, to see Sivagami played by Ramakrishnan romancing with Kattappa played by Satyaraj. For a moment the audience were in utter shock as Rajamatha of the Mahishmati Kingdom romancing the slave Kattappa.
Both of them have impressed us in the film and more than anything, the characters strike well with the audiences, and there was always a hype around the characters. The Chennai-based Pothy brand has used the craze by roping in both the actors for their latest endorsement and they have shot an AD with both the actors in Baahubali style.
The same has been aired in the theatres where Baahubali is playing and this was played during the interval. People who re-entered the theaters in the second half felt shocked after seeing both the actors having a romantic moment but then they realised that it was just for an AD.
Baahubali’s principal characters Kattappa & Sivagami as husband & wife was really a Twist for the Baahubali Chennai audience. However, their curiosity lasted for just few second after they came to know that it was a commercial of the famous brand Pothys.
