The shooting of ace filmmaker S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion is going on in full swing. The director shoulders huge expectations given that the first part of the period drama was a blockbuster that pushed the envelope for the Indian film industry.
Not just the director, the entire cast and crew have been giving everything they have as they strive to exceed the standards they set with Baahubali: The Beginning. Sample this: actor Prabhas has trained for about 30 days just to shoot one particular action scene in the film.
Prabhas is a Tollywood hunk known for his chiselled body. He may have opted to pull off the stunts with his existing fitness level and skills, unless he wanted to push the quality and the outcome of the shoot a notch up.
“The action scenes and stunts which are choreographed in the film are going to be the next level. Each action sequence requires a lot of rehearsals and prep time for it to be shot correctly,” a source told the IndianExpress.com
“As Baahubali : The Beginning itself had some marvelous action scenes, the sequel of the film is set to go a notch higher. And so Prabhas actually trained for 30 days in order to shoot one particular action scene,” the source added.
Now, that is an example of hard work and commitment.
The second part of the two-part epic series, Baahubali: The Conclusion, is clearly the most-anticipated upcoming movie. Not just down south, the first part had created waves across India, besides making history in terms of its theatrical box office collection, both domestic and overseas.
According to reports, the Baahubali team is planning to wrap up the shoot by October and immediately start its post-production work. The film is expected to release in April next year.
