Bahubali has broken all existing records and breached the 1000 Cr mark for Indian Cinema. While it has been receiving appreciation from all corners, none of the Big-3 Khans are yet to speak up about the film.
Promotion plays a bigger role in Hindi Industry compared to South with actors chirping in praise for movies of others, so it comes as a big surprise. The Khans are quite regular on social media and regularly hype up the movies belonging to their camp. Its quite unrealistic to imagine that they might have been oblivious about the success of Bahubali.
In Telugu, each and every actor has been considering the film as their own. Even the makers promoted it as an Indian film rather than Telugu alone. The two superstars – Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu have already tweeted Rajamouli congratulating him on the feat.
My Heartfelt congratulations to Shri Rajmouli,Shri Prabhas &team for their stupendous success of. Bahubali and achieving the 1000 crore mark

The unthinkable has happened! 1000 crores & counting! Thankyou @ssrajamouli & team for making me & the entire Telugu film fraternity proud:)

All this makes us wonder what the situation of the film would have been if not for the backing by Karan Johar. Despite possessing good quality, the films from South were always looked down up on as lesser grade cinema. Its heroes are made fun of for their looks. And now, with its movie surpassing all National Records, there is no word from the 3 Khans who have been ruling the roost for the last 30 years.
Sincere appeal to all our filmmakers is that – Bahubali should not be just a flash in the pan for Telugu cinema. Regular inroads should be made so that people recognize its true worth and hold it on par with other language movies.
Our love for movies is second to none. Our quality of cinema should also be second to none.
