Directed by S.S. Rajamouli the film, that features more than 1,000 armoured extras and has already drawn comparisons to Zack Snyder’s ‘300,’ is being shot in two parts in the city of Hyderabad, reported the Guardian.
Giving details about the project, the ‘Eega’ film-maker said that the movie, whose two parts span two generations, is a simple story of a back-stabbed father, a mother enchained for no wrong and a son who takes revenge.
He added that the budget will definitely be over 250 crore rupees for both parts.
Interestingly the movie requires an extensive cast of 2,000 extras for its battle scenes, with more than 1,000 dressed as soldiers in full costume.
The first part of the film, ‘Baahubali -The Beginning,’ is due to debut in cinemas on July 10, with part two slated for 2016.
