He says, Baahubali was inspired from the comics Amar Chitra Katha ! It’s the simple story of a father who has been back-stabbed, a mother who has been enchained for no wrong of hers and the story of a son who takes revenge. The two parts span two generations.
Regarding high expectations on Baahubali, He is not bothered about the high expectations of Baahubali because of his past track record.
He says, Indian market is more than 200crs but we did not realise our potential. To know whether we get Rs.200crs or not, we should first come with Rs.200crs film. We did that attempt and I am confident that results will be positive.
