Chennai: Actor Rana Daggubati today stated that it is really amazing that the filmmakers have started to think big. Release of “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion”, is still awaited as he further mentioned that the success of S.S. Rajamoulis “Baahubali” as a franchise has given Indian filmmakers the faith to make big budget films.
“I think ‘Baahubali’ has proved it that when you’re making a film for the entire nation, it is bigger than any film made in one language. You could be a filmmaker sitting in Madurai and if you have a great superhero film to make, you have the faith and confidence to make your film because there’s a country of audience to watch it,” Rana.
Does he feel there is sudden urge to make bigger films, especially after the announcement of Mohanlal-starrer multilingual film “The Mahabharata”, to be made on a budget of Rs 1000 crore?
“I think it is amazing filmmakers have started to think big. ‘Baahubali’ has given them the license to go big,” he said.
In “Baahubali” franchise, Rana plays a fictional character Bhallaladeva, who locks horns over an ancient kingdom with his brother Amarendra Baahubali, played by Prabhas.
