S S Rajamouli’s magnum opus 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' which emerged as India's biggest blockbuster in 2017, still continues to be India's highest-grossing film with a collection of over Rs. 1,810 crores. The film which has been praised by many around the world has now got a shout-out from renowned Hollywood filmmaker Scott Derrickson.
Derrickson who has helmed films like Marvel Studio's 'Doctor Strange' recently took to Twitter and shared an action sequence from 'Baahubali 2' and cheered for Indian cinema.
Sharing the clip on Twitter, he wrote, "Behold, India’s Baahubali 2!"
Here's the post:

The war scene from the film shows Mahendra Baahubali, played by Prabhas, launching an attack at the castle of Bhallaladeva’s fort in Mahishmati. With all entrances restricted, Baahubali along with his faithful follower Katappa and souldiers can be seen landing inside the fort implementing a rather innovative technique.
The shot seems to have really impressed the Hollywood filmmaker and Derrickson's interest in the Bollywood venture seems to have intrigued the fans as they have flooded the post with comments.
Here's how they have reacted to the post:
The greatest historical fantasy flick from India. This scene does not represent the greatness of this whole film. Watch the Bahubali 1 and Bahubali 2. You will be hooked and entertained by the sheer magnificent storytelling and canvas.— Movie Guru (@urmovieguru) August 7, 2019
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.— John Andrews (@Jandies1) August 7, 2019
I am so happy that you watched it. Sending love form 🇮🇳 to my favourite MCU director of #DoctorStrange movies— PUSHPARAJ ZALA (@PUSHPARAJZALA3) August 7, 2019
