While the secret of Bermuda triangle remains one of the biggest mysteries the mankind has ever had, year 2015 saw another mystery getting added to the list. The epic Indian blockbuster Baahubali: The Beginning , which released last year and took not just India, but the world by storm, gave the mankind another puzzle to solve Why did Katappa kill Baahubali? Katappa, the king’s Royal as well as loyal slave, known for his great fighting abilities, kills the king Baahubali under mysterious circumstances at the end of the first part. It has since remained a big mystery, with people speculating different ideas as to why he must have committed the act.

While the suspense will come out only in April 2017, when the second instalment in the series Baahubali: The Conclusion releases, another massive development rocked the cricket fraternity post release of the first part in 2015. So impressed was the Australian pacer Doug Dougy Bollinger after watching Baahubali that he apparently watched it more than 10 times in the theatres. He developed a particular liking for Katappa s character and has since been sporting Katappa s looks. Recently, we caught up with him during the ongoing Matador Cup one-day cricket in Australia, where he is playing by sporting a Katappa look.

The tall and burly pacer told our representative that he does not find himself any different from Katappa and in fact considers him as his brother separated at birth. Look mate, just like Katappa, I too am a loyal servant, of Australian cricket of course. I love the way he fought bravely and look to do similar stuff on the cricket field, he said, adding that the daunting look does make him a fearsome prospect. Just like others, Bollinger too has been waiting for the suspense to come out. I also want to know Katappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara? he signed off.
