While most southern producers would find it difficult to shell out Rs. 30 crore on an entire project, the makers of SS Rajamouliās Baahubali 2 are said to be spending the same amount on the climax portion alone.
The team will start filming the climax portion from Monday and will shoot non-stop for 10 weeks to wrap up the project as planned earlier in August. After months of rehearsing, the much anticipated war sequence will be shot in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad where National award-winning art director Sabu Cyril has already erected special sets.
Lee Whitaker, the Hollywood action director who has worked on films such as Fast & Furious 5, Into the Storm, Pearl Harbor and Jurassic Park 3, is the action director of Baahubali 2. He will be working with Brad Allan and his team, known for their work on Kingsman series; Larnell Stovall, who worked on The Hunger Games series and Salman Khan's Sultan; and Morne Van Tonder, who had worked in The Hobbit franchise.
Prabhas has been rehearsing for nearly two months for the climax portion which will also feature Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia and Anushka Shetty.
