Why Katappa Killed Bahubali?

The question of the century is, why Katappa killed Bahubali?  Many admins of various pages on Facebook literally got their bread & butter by en cashing this question.

This is probably the biggest swerve we ever witnessed in any Indian cinema, I mean while I was watching the movie I was on the edge of my seat and then this happened and I was like, What the Heaven I just witnessed?

So there are a numerous number of theories going on why Katappa killed Bahubali.

So while I was watching the movie for the second time during its premiere, something clicked and I thought that this might really be a reason on why Katappa killed Bahubali.

And before you stop reading this further let me assure you this is not any real spoiler or something like that, like any other movie buff I have a habit of assuming things and I am just presenting my views on what could be the probable reason for why Katappa killed Bahubali.


As we are aware of the fact that Katappa was the loyal soldier of the mahishmati kingdom, and he was not even afraid of giving up his life for the sake of security of his kingdom, and he believed in total devotion towards his work and towards the kingdom.

And you all might remember that during the climax of the movie, the clause was that whoever would kill the senapati of the kalkeya tribe would be the next king.

And the one in reality who killed the senapati was Bhallala Deva but due to his methodology of winning the war he was not chosen the king instead Bahubali was made the new king.

So if we closely monitor the character of Katappa we can safely assume that this was not fair as per his moral standings, and thus he might have killed Bahubali because of him being made the king even when he was not the one who killed the senapati of the kalkeya tribe.

Thus this is my take on why Katappa might have killed Bahubali. As because the one who should have been the king is Bhallala deva.


So folks what do you think might have been the reason for the killing of Bahubali.
