Amitabh Bachchan started off by saying, “So Rana I feel very privileged to have seen this first look that you’ve just shown me of Baahubali. And I’m absolutely amazed and astonished at how you have been able to recreate this magnificent visual and I’m sure the story is equally good. You’re working with Rajamouli who is such a renowned talent. How did you conceive something like this it’s just unimaginable.”
Rana Daggubati added his insight stating that the film was shot over a period of 400 days and the climax war of the film alone was shot in around 120 days in all. To which Big B states, “My God this is unbelievable, I feel so small in front of something like this because it’s a great effort, I doubt if anything like this has been seen in Indian cinema before. I hope millions of people can see the effort that has been made because it is truly quite unimaginable. I mean we normally see these kind of structure, the action and the framework in progressive Hollywood films. But seeing this here in India, shot in Hyderabad is amazing. I feel very honoured to be a part of a film industry that is inventing and making such fantastic material.”
Big B who is an idealistic actor conveyed his best wishes to the entire team of Baahubali, “All the very best, this is an incredible effort and I have never seen anything like this before. Gosh now I feel like I should have been in this project also! (chuckles) Every time I see something astonishing I feel very envious and I wish I was a part of it. Many congratulations to you, to Rajamouli and everyone who is connected with this film. This looks absolutely amazing and I’m sure it will do extremely well in the days to come.”
