What Happened to Devasena, Rani, Bajrangi After the Film Ended?
Baahubali Jr ne Katappa ko kyu mara?
We all love the happily-ever-after movies. Well, almost. We loved it when all went well in the end for the Raichand parivaar (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham) and also breathed a sigh of relief when Aman sacrificed his love for Anjali and let Rahul marry his best friend in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Bach gaye!
Bollywood lives on melodrama. Let’s be honest, we’re suckers for rona-dhona and unlike Anand Babu in Amar Prem, we LOVE tears. But guys, what if we refuse to accept what is fed to us by Bollywood? What if pyaar, dosti, doesn’t last forever?
So I’m going to debunk all the usual rubbish about some of our popular Bollywood films, by giving you an alternate view of how these characters eventually ended up:
After handing over the palace ki chaabi to Avantika, Devasena felt lonely as her favourite hangout spot for the last 25 years was burnt in front of her eyes. She couldn’t chill with her son Mahendra Baahubali much because he had other interests like climbing waterfalls. The only person she could talk to and had common interests with was Katappa.
Seeing his mother’s loneliness, Baahubali suggested Devasena should marry Katappa. Katappa refused but he was soon reminded that it’s his duty to serve his king. Soon Mahishmati-ites had another reason to celebrate. And Devasena and Katappa lived happily ever after till something pissed off Baahubali and he went and killed Katappa. And so the question arises, why did Baahubali kill Katappa?
After returning from her solo honeymoon and giving the ring back to Vijay, Rani experiences an epiphany that she must become a counsellor for women who have had failed relationships. Rani even takes over Kaira’s case (Dear Zindagi) after Dr Jehangir Khan completes her counselling.
When not counselling, Rani turns travel blogger. She gives tips on how to deal with lizards, and how to never forget to pack salt and masalas while travelling, especially hing. ’Cuz nobody knows the English word for hing.
Bajrang Bali ki Kasam, Bajrangi Bhaijaan loves his newfound celeb status. In fact, him and Rasika were invited to participate in Nach Baliye but unfortunately his injured leg didn’t allow him to. So, for the time being, he still has to dance with the mohale ke log to his favourite selfie song. Not to Dhinchak Pooja’s selfie song, but the one he has already popularised.
Bajrangi was appointed as India’s goodwill ambassador to Pakistan. Thanks to his status, he, in a joint venture with Chand Nawab, started their own travel agency – Bajrangi ke saath, taaron ke niche se… Where he personally takes his customers to help them cross borders.
Basanati and Veeru (Sholay)
Yay, pyaar! But it wasn’t easy. Jai’s death left Veeru highly depressed and he resorted to alcohol. Every evening Veeru went to his “sooside” point to drown his sorrows in rum. Pissed off with Veeru’s condition, Basanti admitted him to rehab. Basanti, along with Dhanno, started a horse riding school in Ramgarh and soon opened branches in other cities.
All was well. Veeru returned home and Basanti became a successful entrepreneur. A city-based water purifier company got Basanti to endorse their product, which made Veeru a happy man, ’cuz he needed ‘shudh paani’ to make his pegs.
After leading his team to victory, the gaon ka chora, Bhuvan, wanted a career change. Bhuvan considered himself too cool to be just a regular farmer. So he decided to pursue cricket seriously, ’cuz after all, he defeated the goras at their own game.
He started working on his land - not to grow wheat or rice, but to make a pitch where he could practice with Lakha. But Gauri wasn’t happy with his decision, as she could no longer do Ghanan Ghanan with Bhuvan, ’cuz the man’s priorities changed.
Bhuvan also wanted to learn English but Gauri forbade him from it because rumour has it that there were other gori mems coming to the village to teach the desis some English. And we all know Bhuvan's past with Elizabeth Russell. Can’t blame Gauri, yo!
