The experience I got while working in Baahuabli is equal to 10 movies: Sabu Cyril
Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion is gearing up to hit screen worldwide on April 28. Post production works are going on in full swing to ensure a quality output. This magnum opus directed by SS Rajamouli is arguably the most anticipated movie of the year. The whole nation is waiting to watch the kingdom of Mahishmati for one last time.
Production designer Sabu Cyril is the Malayali presence in the movie. He is Rajamouli’s go to man who brings on screen whatever Rajamouli visualizes. In a recent interview, the country’s most sought after production designer, Sabu Cyril, shared about his experience working with the Baahubali team.
“For the past five years, my only thought was about Baahubali. It became a part of my life the day after I joined the team. I have worked in only two movies in these five years time- Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay and Rajinikanth’s Lingaa. Working in Baahubali gave me an experience for working in ten movies. I have incorporated all that I learnt in the movie. The first part just showed the characters and their backgrounds but the real plot evolves in the sequel. A lot of VFX works were shown in the first part but Baahubali 2 was mostly shot in real sets that we erected. We have made artificial animals, as we are not supposed to use animals for film shooting. Elephants, bulls and horses were all artificially made for the war sequence. One thing I can assure you is that the second part will be much more superior in terms of visual grandeur.”
The trailer of Baahubali 2 gave a sneak peak into the world of Mahishmati. If the two minute trailer is anything to go by, Sabu Cyril and his team have something out of the world in store for us. The movie will release simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam.
