'Baahubali 2' mania has gripped the nation, and among the millions raving about the film is the Superstar himself – Rajinikanth. The south film industry's living legend joined the chorus of fans singing praises of the film when he took to his social networking handle on Sunday night and termed the film as "Indian cinema's pride", and saluted director Rajamouli and his team.
Lauding the masterpiece, Rajinikanth tweeted, "'Baahubali 2' Indian cinema's pride. My salutes to god's own child Rajamouli and his team."
Humbled by Rajinikanth's kind words, director Rajamouli replied saying, " THALAIVAAAA... Feeling like god himself blessed us... our team is on cloud9... Anything couldn't be bigger..."

The second part in the "Baahubali" franchise is said to have registered the biggest opening for an Indian film.
