Analysis:

Several stories doing rounds heavily on social media sites in India and elsewhere online suggest that the Baahubali Superstar Prabhas, the movie director S.S. Rajamouli, or the movie team has Donated Rs 120 Crores – the first day collection of the movie Baahubali 2: The Conclusion – to CRPF Soldiers Killed in a Naxal Attack. The stories also accompanied a photograph showing the actor Prabhas meeting the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. No, as explained below, the claims are not facts.

After the huge success of the historic fiction film Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, social media was flooded with various posts that the Baahubali team had donated Rs 120 Crore (the first day’s collection of the film) to the families of 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel killed by Naxals in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district in Feb. 2017. When a team of 99 CRPF personnel was carrying out a sanitization exercise for an under-construction road, nearly 300 Naxals attacked them. However, there is no such official information about donation from any of the actors, team members or makers of Baahubali movie. The picture is actually an old one from late July 2015 when the actor Prabhas met Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to watch the Baahubali 1 (Baahubali: The Beginning) movie that was a huge success, creating history at box office. Along with Prabhas, his uncle and veteran actor Krishnam Raju and his wife were also present at the meet. Back then even the Indian PM tweeted about their meet on his official Twitter account:

So the picture stories saying the actor Prabhas, director S.S. Rajamouli or the Baahubali team has donated 120 Crores to the families of soldiers killed in Naxal attack in Sukma are hoaxes.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
