The biggest blockbuster and highest grosser of 2016 was Produced by Karan Johar jointly. It was also considered as Bollywood movie along with Tollywood movie. But in a recent mega event of IIFA 2016, it did not receive one single award. In fact, few leading news agency even stated as Bollywood felt Baahubali as unfit for any awards.

Right from Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Remo D’Souza, Salman Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor, among the long list of invitations. Southern stars were also invited, but the worst part happened to ‘Baahubali’. The highest grossing blockbuster film of the year did not receive one single award.
IIFA 2016 best actor and actress awards were entitled to Deepika and Ranveer respectively. When it came to Best Film, Salman’s blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan grabbed the opportunity. Everyone cheered aloud after the announcement. Many actors stated it as worth deserving. But people dwelling down South could not bare it and threw questions on the jury panel.
Directed by S S Rajamouli, Baahubali has crossed the 300 crore INR mark which is in itself a landmark. Featuring Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubatti, Tamannah Bhatia, Ramaiah, etc. it was an epic love story of all times. The filmmaker or other team member were not spotted for reactions, but an analyst from Tollywood got furious over the fact. They were even seen quoting that “how come movie like Baahubali did not get any award and illogical movies like Bajrangi Bhaijan got an award”.
Well, whatever the reason may be but Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan equally stole our hearts and fans like us long to watch such powerful movies.
