Coming as the latest update from the Baahubali crew, it seems that the shooting of the Baahubali: The Conclusion is progressing unabated at a brisk pace and the post production work is underway despite the recent troubles it went through.
“Baahubali movie 2 post production works including dubbing, music, sound design and DI are also happening simultaneously!! So much to do!” posted producer Shobu Yarlagadda.
He also said the work is going under tight supervision since the leak. “Kamal Kannan (VFX head) is supervising work across 30 studios and freelancers (350+ artistes) for @BaahubaliMovie 2!” the producer added.
Baahubali 2 is going full throttle with its promotions but it has been in news for the wrong reasons recently. First, the Income Tax raid for the alleged stash of Rs 60 crore at Arka Media Studio, the movie’s production house, and more recently for the leak of the video. Since then the shooting has been kept under wraps.
The leak of the Baahubali 2 war sequence created a furor across industries and on the internet. Though the miscreants were quickly nabbed by the Hyderabad police and the circulation of the clip was stopped before it went viral, there seems to be a real threat of the video emerging elsewhere in cyberspace and an added investment for the production house to make the work premises more secure.
A nine-minute action scene that was leaked is said to be a crucial part of the second film. In fact, it apparently appears just before Kattappa stabs Baahubali in the back. The accused behind the leak has been identified as one Krishna Dayanand Chowdary, a trainee graphic designer at Annapurna Studio in Hyderabad. The film unit found that he had accessed the server and had stolen the video clip in question.
