However, the situation in Karnataka has turned rather adverse for the film. A pro-Kannada group has already started a protest in Bellary over the screening of Baahubali 2 trailer in Karnataka.
Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, a Kannada group, held a protest in Karnataka. The main reason for the protest is Sathyaraj, the actor who plays Kattappa in the film. Sathyaraj had earlier given a speech over the Kauvery issue, and that has not gone down well with some of the Kannadigas.
Reportedly, the group gathered were shouting slogans against Sathyaraj. The group is even demanding that the film will be banned in Karnataka.
