Since the spin-off of Baahubali is good to go to revamp film industry history, maker Shobu Yarlagadda, the man who had confidence in Rajamouli’s vision and was sure that a legendary epic on this scale could be pulled off, is a glad man.
“I can’t state, we saw this coming,” Shobu chuckles delicately when helped to remember the exceptional anger of the Baahubali establishment. “However, we knew it would succeed. Rajamouli and I had a common vision, and we had an assurance to force it off. Most vital of all we had a committed group helmed by Rajamouli , author K Vijayendra Prasadji (he’s Rajamouli’s dad) and (driving man) Prabhas who dedicated five years of their life and profession to Baahubali. I concentrated totally on Baahubali while my generation house kept on delivering TV content which keeps on being our bread and margarine.”
Prabhas strikingly was not a name to figure with when Baahubali was arranged with him.
Relates Shobu, “Yet Rajamouli was focused on doing a film with Prabhas. What’s more, looking back we are blessed to have Prabhas assume the title part. Baaahubali is incredible without Prabhas. Rajamouli, you should recall, was an imposing name in Telugu film from before Baahubali. Truth be told Rajamouli imparted an extremely unique kinship to me from right off the bat in my vocation as a maker. We were companions to start with, then business partners. We cooperated on a sucessful Telugu film Maryada Ramanna. Rajamouli had done different blockbusters like Magadheera and Eega before Baahubali.”
This time, however, Shobu says there was a distinction. “We were resolved to take Baahubali a long ways past its local dialect, a long ways past Telugu silver screen .For that we required the sort of spending plan and commitment that we got from every one of our artistes and experts.”
At first the financial backing reserved for Baahubali was far lower than what it inevitably ended up being. “We had chosen that the venture required Rs 120 crores for both the sections. In the end the film cost Rs 450 crores to make. Each penny was justified, despite all the trouble,” says Shobu.
The essential thing now, says Shobu, is to take the Baahubali establishment ahead. “We are currently taking a shot at a TV serial situated in the back stories of Baahubali.”
No financial plan or time restrain has been put aside for the serial. Says Shobu, “Dissimilar to the film we are not planning the TV arrangement. All we know is that it would be India’s response to Game Of Thrones with the most elevated creation values conceivable. We wouldn’t bargain on the financial plan since it’s TV. We’ll treat the arrangement with an indistinguishable regard from the two component movies.”
The arrangement which goes into shooting in another 4-5 months will be broadcast in mid 2018.It will be shot on the Baahubali set raised at Ramuji Rao Studio in the edges of Hyderabad for the two element movies. The throwing for the arrangement is yet to start.
