The Baahubali impact on the Indian film industry is phenomenal, no doubt. While the producers are trying to exploit the market for epic-based films, we hear that three noted producers Allu Aravind, Namit Malhotra and Madhu Mantena will be joining hands to produce a three-part film on the Ramayana.
Touted to be a trilingual made in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, the film will be made on a humongous budget. Though the discussions on the project have been going on for more than a year now, the star cast hasnâ€™t been finalised yet, we hear.
Incidentally, a Dubai-based producer had announced that a two-part film on the Mahabharata would be made on a budget of Rs. 1000 crores. Details about this project are kept under wraps for now. The filmmakers are working on the cast and crew and an announcement will be made officially soon, add sources.
Baahubali: The Beginning released in 2015 was one of the biggest hits of the year and its sequel, Baahubali: The Conclusion broke all records, having grossed well over Rs. 1000 crores at the box office. Loaded with VFX and technical grandeur, Baahubali has set a new benchmark for the Indian film industries.
Directed by SS Rajamouli, Baahubali 1 & 2, have been produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under the banner Arka Media Works. The film has a huge star cast that includes Prabhas as Baahubali, Rana Daggubati as Bhallaladeva, Sathyaraj as Kattappa, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Anushka as Devasena and Tammannah as Avanthika.
Baahubali: The Conclusion was the first Indian movie to be made and released in 4K High Definition format. With reports about Ramayana and Mahabharata also to be adapted as movies, fans are waiting eagerly for yet another visual splendour.
