The shop owner Shubham told reporters, “I had been wanting to do something different to bring the samosa into the news. We decided to make a ‘Bahubali’ samosa. We began by making a four kg samosa and then the eight kg samosa.”
He said that the eight kg samosa costs around Rs 1,100 and the filling in it includes potato, peas, cottage cheese and dry fruits.

However, he admitted that the Bahubali samosa, which is becoming increasingly popular, had brought back customers to his shop.
“Food bloggers from different parts of the country are coming to see the Bahubali samosa,” he said.
