Shah Rukh Khan is all praise for SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali
The astounding success of Baahubali has taken Indian cinema to a global level. The scale at which the movie was made is on par with some of the best Hollywood films of the same genre. Accolades continues to flow in for SS Rajamouli and his team.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has always stressed on the importance of technology in taking Indian cinema to greater heights. He recently said that the success of a movie like Baahubali is an example of how there’s no glory without guts.
Shah Rukh Khan is yet to see Baahubali 2 yet but is all praise about SS Rajamouli’s vision. He found Baahubali 1 extremely inspiring and hopes that this holds true for the second.
He is quoted saying to IANS in an email interview,
“I saw Baahubali part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It’s an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well. Not just the success with numbers but the vision, just the thought… No guts, no glory… and Baahubali stands for that“.
The actor also had a word about how technology will always play an important part in filmmaking.
“Technology, of course, will always be a huge part of cinema. I believe that. I would never discount the fact that other kinds of films can also be made. They’re fantastic and beautiful… Before technology came in, we still made wonderful films.”
“But if you want to create that big cinema and that big dream to sell to a big number of people, you have to have guts to take that storytelling on and say it in the biggest, nicest, boldest way possible. Baahubali stands for that.”
“It’s not just the success of Baahubali, but the fact that there was someone making Baahubali part one. Mr S.S. Rajamouli is always inspirational… Whichever film he’ll make. It’s heartening and encourages every filmmaker. Me too. And there are some other directors, producers also who do that.” (sic)
