Bahubali Shooting in Kurnool
‘Student No. 1’ is a love story, ‘Simhadri, Chatrapati, Vikrmarkudu’ are action films,‘Yamadonga and Magadheera’ are socio fantasy stories, ‘Maryada Ramanna’ is a comedy faction subject and the latest ‘Eega’ is a scientific thriller, now the latest movie ‘Bahubali’ is a completely different from all the above and a folklore subject. What more proofs are required to say that Rajamouli is a great director of Tollywood in this generation.
The shooting of ‘Bahubali’ now started at Kurnool from today. The film remained a point of discussion in the industry and among the audience. Because, Rajamouli made the pre-production work of the film itself a penance or yagna. He changed the body language and histrionics of all the lead artistes including Prabhas, Anushka and Rana and made all of them to learn the folklore martial arts like sword fighting, horse riding etc, besides designing the sets of forts and the swords and other weaponry. He is leaving no stone unturned to revive the golden days of the Telugu cinema which has produced several folklore films, while designing ‘Bahubali’ film.
The current schedule of the film is at Rock Gardens,Kurnool for four days only. Earlier, it was planned in Hyderabad, but later shifted to Kurnool as the shooting should be done preferably in a historical place. The current schedule would continue till July 14. Later, Rajamouli will be leaving for US on his personal work. The next schedule would begin after his return from the US. The film is being made simultaneously as a trilingual, in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages. The film is being presented by K Raghavendra Rao, and produced by Yarlagadda Sabhu and Devineni Prasad on the banner of Arka Media Works. Satyaraj, Sudeep, Adavi Seshu and others are in the cast.
Young Rebel Star Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Rana are in the lead roles. The team has been well trained for the project in the past few months.
