The blockbuster super hit movie of 2015 “Baahubali-The Beginning” was a masterpiece that wowed audiences across the world and created new records in the collection. The movie was directed by SS Rajamouli and starred Prabhas, Tamannah, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty in lead roles. The film had veteran Tamil actor, Sathyaraj, in an important role as Kattappa who turned out to be a character as vital as the others.

The movie takes us through the journey of Shiva and is set in the fictional kingdom of Mahishmati where Shiva meets with his long-lost mother and comes to know of the truth about his birth. Here he comes face to face with Kattappa, the king’s loyal slave warrior. Shiva is the son of King Amarendra Baahubali and when he questions Kattappa about who killed his father, Shiva gets a stunning answer, Kattappa himself.

This was how Baahubali-The Beginning ended and created a huge wave of suspense and drama amongst moviegoers who debated about the real reason behind Kattappa killing Shiva’s father, King Baahubali.

1Loyalty (?)

Reason No 1. Kattappa killed Baahubali because he acted without verifying the truth about the orders Bhalladeva gave to him about killing the traitor in the group. Bhalladeva asked him to stab that person from the back as he was a traitor and deserved to be killed in that manner. If he has known the identity of the person he was killing, Kattappa wouldn’t have killed Baahubali ever.

2Script sake! (?)

Reason No 2. Another reason could be that Kattappa was more loyal to another person and could not reject orders received from him and that person is Director SS Rajamouli himself.

3Devsena (?)

Reason No 3. Baahubali & Bhalladeva fall in love with the same girl, Devsena and Bhalladeva is hurt since Devsena chooses Baahubali over him. By taking support from his father, the jealous Bhalladeva convinces the Queen to order Kattappa to kill Baahubali. Kattappa has no option but to carry out the orders given by the Queen and kills Baahubali.

4Queen’s orders (?)

Reason No 4:Bhalladeva and his father could have blackmailed Sivagami to make Bhalladeva the king instead of Baahubali. But since the queen has declared Baahubali’s name, the only way to remove him would be to kill him, which is why she orders the loyal servant Kattappa to kill Amarendra Baahubali.

5Capture of Sivagami (?)

Reason No 5: Another reason could be that Bhalladeva had captured Sivagami and held her as a hostage. Using this as a leverage, Bhalladeva would have asked Kattappa to kill Baahubali and Kattappa is the Kingdom’s most loyal warrior and thus he kills Baahubali

6Now we are just running out of options! 

Reason no 6: Kattappa is a bald man and Baahubali has promised him an oil that would regrow his hair, but does not do so and makes fun of Kattappa. This angers Kattappa and he kills Baahubali.

7Candy crush, maybe!

Reason no 7: There is also a theory that Kattappa was angry with Baahubali for sending him a Candy Crush request and this was the main reason for killing him.

Mystery will be revealed on 14th April 2017, when Baahubali 2, Baahubali: The Conclusion releases.
