MUMBAI: You’ve got to get psychiatric help if you have watched Bahubali 2: The Conclusion and not liked it, says filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who cannot seem get enough of the movie.
As always, RGV took to Twitter to speak his mind, this time saying that producer Shobu Yarlagadda should sponsor mental health checkups for people who disliked the second instalment of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus.
“Be sad on person who disliked #Baahubali2 as he/her needs psychiatric help nd I request producer @Shobu_ in to pay doctor bill for charity,” RGV tweeted.
In another tweet, reacting to the film’s producer Shobu Yarlagadda’s post (“Baahubali storm in USA !!”), RGV wrote, “Sir calling BB2 just a storm is insulting it ..it’s a typhoon having intercourse with a volcano to produce lots of baby earthquakes.”

“Like world was divided into BC and AD (before death of Christ nd after ) Indian cinema is going to be BB and AB(before Bahubali and after).”
