There is only one word to explain Baahubali : GRAND. In fact, before S.S. Rajamouli’s cinematic marvel, nobody could have even imagined such an ambitious piece of art, let alone attempting it, at least in this part of the world. But on the second day of its release, we actually have something we can all proudly hail as India’s answer to Hollywood!
A whopping 35 Lakh to 40 Lakh is being spent per day for the gigantic climax of Baahubali: The Conclusion, divulged a source in the know. Producers are said to be digging deep into their pockets and leaving no opportunity unturned to splurge on the film and ensuring a grand visual treat for viewers. What’s more shocking is that this cost is excluding the stars fee, film’s principal crew’s remunerations, sets cost.
Given that thousands of junior artistes are working for the climax portion, their daily wages, food, the rents of high-end cameras, lights, other equipment, transportation of the workers, fuel charges and rents of vehicles and other miscellaneous expenditure together is to the tune of a staggering 35 to 40 Lakh per day.
While the climax sequence of Baahubali: The Beginning had costed some 15 Crore, the makers have just doubled the expenditure for the sequel as the climax of Baahubali: The Conclusion alone would be 30 Crore, i.e the budget of a big-ticket Tollywood film. Since Baahubali has become a global film and no longer a regional film and gained cult admiration cutting across borders, producers too not thinking twice to spend the monies.
SS Rajamouli is working vigorously on the film and is said to be keen on releasing the film on time this time without any delays like the first part. The epic film is slated for April 14, 2017 release.
