Media interaction on piracy became a ruckus as the media personnel were upset with team Baahubali for choosing select print media houses to grant interviews of the stars in the film , ignoring other media houses.
They invited Eenadu, Sakshi, Andhra Jyothi and Namasthe Telangana in print media and gave interviews to 4 TV channels and few top websites. The team has neglected other print media houses like Andhra Bhoomi, Surya, Andhra Prabha and Vartha etc. Not only that , they have ignored dozens of TV channels, who were continuously promoting Baahubali right from the beginning. Only couple of english dailies were added to exclusive elite list.
Upset Media personnel questioned the producer Shobu for not treating all the channels equally in giving interviews . Sobhu tried to convince them saying that they have started promotions just few days back and promised to give a chance to everyone. But the media personnel were not satisfied. Rajamouli was upset and Rana left the stage. Meanwhile , Some media houses have carried posts on their blogs for neglecting them.
