With just a day left for its release, the team of Baahubali, including the producer, actor and director, was allegedly subjected to harassment, rude behaviour and racism on a flight while they were returning to Hyderabad from Dubai post the promotions of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.

The issue was brought to the limelight by Shobu Yarlagadda, one of the co-producers of the magnum opus, as he took to social media to vent out against the Dubai-based airline.

"Flying to Hyd on @emirates EK526. Airline staff at gate B4 were very rude n harassed our team unnecessarily! Bad attitude n service!," wrote Yarlagadda.

He even pointed out that one of the cabin crew members was racist. "I think one of the @emirates staff was being racist.. I fly @emirates regularly n this is 1st time I have come across this kind of attitude," he posted.

The film, a sequel to the 2015 mega blockbuster Baahubali, is now gearing up for a mammoth release across 9,000 screens worldwide. It is set to hit theatres this Friday, and we can't wait to know why Kattappa killed Baahubali.
