Amitabh Bachchan would’ve loved to be part of ‘Baahubali’


Megastar Amitabh Bachchan who was very much impressed by the first look of ‘Baahubali' said that he would have loved to be a part of this grand project by S.S. Rajamouli. According to him, some actions and frame work used in the film can only be seen in progressive Hollywood films.  

Sharing his thoughts about the film, Big B said, “I doubt if anything like this has ever been seen in Indian cinema. We normally see this kind of structure and action in some of the more progressive Hollywood films. I should have been in this project too.”

Speaking with ‘Baahubali’ lead actor Rana Dagubatti over video chat, the 72-year-old actor said, “I feel very privileged to have seen this first look of 'Baahubali' and I am absolutely amazed and astonished that how you have been able to recreate this magnificent visual.” He was sure that the story must be equally good.

Amitabh also appreciated Rajamouli for conceiving such and “unimaginable” project and said he felt small in front of it. “I feel so small in front of something like this because it is a great effort and I hope million and million of people can see this effort that has been made because it is truly unimaginable.”

The two part epic film stars Rana, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles. ‘Baahubali’ was shot simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil languages and will also be released in English, French, Hindi, and Malayalam and in several other foreign languages.

Filmmaker Karan Johar's Dharma Productions will present the Hindi version in collaboration with Anil Thadani’s AA Films. ‘Baahubali’ is set to release on July 10.
