Prabhas, Rana, Tamanna, Anushka's Baahubali The Beginning created sensation at the box office. Now expectations are increasing on the film's second part Baahubali The Conclusion which is slated for grand release on April 28.
Analysts are expecting the film to break all records at the box office and become a sensational hit. Rebel Star Prabhas revealed reason on why Baahubali had to be a blockbuster. He said “Even if Baahubali became a hit, it wouldn’t be enough, and that was a big flop in our minds because the producers had put in a lot of money in the film. If it had flopped, neither Rajamouli nor I could have helped the producers. Because even if we did three films each for them, they would perhaps not recover the money that they put into this film. So Baahubali had to be a blockbuster to recover the money,”
He added “Initially, I gave 80 days for the action episode but it extended to nearly 120 days. On the whole, I gave 300 days for the action episodes of the film,” On shooting for the action episodes he said , “It was not that easy to shoot the action episodes. After we completed one scene, it would take three to four hours to set up another scene and also, each episode costed lakhs of rupees. The whole atmosphere was like a big factory with thousands of employees.”
