Industry is paying more attention to detailing: SS Rajamouli

The filmmaker is the creator of the famed Baahubali universe which is India's biggest blockbuster

Published: 04th October 2017

Filmmaker SS Rajamouli feels industry people are putting in a lot of effort to detailing, and calls it a "significant change" in the cinema world.

"We are putting much more effort in the detailing and the characterisation, and the physical things like costumes, sets or the lighting. And that has been quite a significant change across all the industries," Rajamouli says.

The filmmaker attained global fame as the creator of the Baahubali universe -- which went on to become India's biggest blockbuster with worldwide earnings of over Rs 900 crore ($137 million). It took about four years to make the film. Asked if he ever had the urge to quit, Rajamouli says, "I never came across a stumbling block or felt that it is not going my way. Every filmmaker will find some small things when we feel it is not going our way. The best way to deal with it is to go and look back the source, the script."

Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, Baahubali was about the battle for the ownership of an ancient kingdom between two brothers, told in two parts. The films also featured Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.

The first part, Baahubali: The Beginning, came out in 2015 and the second Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released earlier this year. The second part will have its TV premiere on October 8.
