There will also be an exciting social media competition. To participate, Saarang enthusiasts have to simply document any sights, sounds or memories from the festival and share it on any social media platform with the hashtag-#BaahubaliAtSaarang.

Furthermore, Madhan Karky, award winning lyricist and Tamil dialogue writer for “Baahubali”, will be contributing in the Lecture Demonstration Series on the first day of the festival.
Finally, adding to the tradition of crowning a Mr. and Ms. Saarang, this year there will be a new title up for grabs – Mr. Baahubali. As the name suggests, this title will be given to the guy with the most well built physique.
Saarang is a famous cultural extravaganza held annually at IIT Madras. A five-day festival, it is characterized by days jam-packed with events and competitions, while the nights are comprised of performances from the best professional artistes from India and abroad.
“Baahubali” is an upcoming film directed by the renowned director, S. S. Rajamouli and produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni on Arka Mediaworks banner. Backed by an exceptional team that has 12 National awards between them, “Baahubali” is a much awaited two-part movie. The first part is going to hit the screens this summer.
With a possibly record breaking budget for an Indian film, the sheer extravagance, scale and depth of “Baahubali” will offer an unprecedented visual delight for audiences. The pre-production visualisation process itself demanded the work of over 25 artists, who drafted at least 15,000 sketches.
