National Award winning art director Sabu Cyril, one of the most prominent figures in his field who has worked on films like Kaalapani, Asoka, Om Shanti Om, and Robot has revealed some facts about Baahubali 2, SS Rajamouliās fantasy period epic, during a recent media interaction.
It is noted that makers are not compromising with the budgets and want to deliver a quality product ahead of the second part.
The maverick art director revealed that he is in the process of erecting an evocative set, which will showcase the Mahishmati kingdom in a grander way and it will be bigger than the first part. A team of around 300-500 workers including painters, moulders, welders and carpenters are involved in making the set.
He added that animals such as horses, elephants and snakes which are being used in the film are neither CGI nor real, but they have been created mechanically. The elaborate weaponry and props are being done with carbon fibre material.
The shooting of the second installment is progressing rapidly and the makers have already announced their decision to release the film on April 28, 2017.
