While Director SS Rajamouli said, The enthusiastic cinemagoers are comparing Baahubali with Hollywood’s 300 & Hercules. He said Baahubali will break the previous big-budget Indian film by a whopping $17 million. However there are still over a hundred days of shooting left, followed by post-production for the second part. The budget will definitely be over 250 crore rupees ($40 million) for both parts, said the director.
Baahubali will overtake the 2010 Tamil movie Enthiran (Robot), which cost an estimated Rs 1.5 billion ($23 million) to make, as Indian cinema’s most costly film so far.
