Visakhapatnam: After sweating it out in the sets for years together, Bahubali director Rajamouli had a playtime in the coastal city on Friday. He played badminton with budding players for a while after inaugurating Lakshya Sports Academy at Vadlapudi.

Rajamouli, after the game, told a story from the Bharatam, to the enthralling players and all those present at the occasion, much like the same way he did through Baahubali sequel.

“Arjuna replied that he could see only the eyes of the bird when Dronacharya asked him what he could see in front of him. Arjuna was single-minded. His eyes completely were set on the target. He did not even turn his eyes towards any other object, including the tree on which the bird was perched,” he said.

Adding that only those who have single-minded focus on their targets could achieve success, he implicitly revealed the real secret behind Bahubali’s spectacular success at box office.

“Diligence and focus are the two characteristics one must have to be successful in one’s life,” he told.

Rajamouli advised the badminton aspirants to practice meditation for achieving focus. His childhood friend and National Institute of Sports (NIS) trained Coach MV Murali Krishna owns the academy.

Prabhas Was Almost Penniless While Shooting Baahubali, Says SS Rajamouli

Rajamouli says Prabhas made a lot of sacrifices for focusing on the shooting of Baahubali, the beginning as well as conclusion. Prabhas went penniless at one stage, says the ace director.

Hyderabad: It is highly unimaginable to think of a hero who dedicates four years of his time for a two-part film; but, the unbelievable happened while shooting for Baahubali.

Even an average hero would not prefer to commit to a single film for four years, however big that might be. But Prabhas put complete faith in Rajamouli when he instructed Prabhas not to sign any film for five years.

Standing by the word he has given to Rajamouli, Prabhas refused all the offers, cheques and monetary favours during the making of Baahubali.Thus, he became almost penniless while shooting for ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ and ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion.’ This was revealed by none other than Rajamouli, in an interview given to a popular Telugu Channel. He is quoted to have said that, “As Prabhas had three consecutive hits and producers were running after him with money, Prabhas focused on Baahubali. He instructed his manager not to demand anything from producers and take anything they give.”

Further, he said that at a point of time Prabhas fell short of money. Producers flooded his house with offers, cash and cheques and without asking anything in return, with all the developments Prabhas got nervous and called Rajamouli for an advice. I asked him to get an affidavit done, with a statement that the money doesn’t have anything with your work. But he denied the amount with the fear of repayment of huge sums. Prabhas also rejected an advertisement worth Rs. 10 crores, Rajamouli said. Saying that Prabhas doesn’t know how to lie, he added that he doesn’t even hurt anyone’s sentiments for no reason. “He does not like to see people hurt,” Rajamouli said.

Both the films were a great success. While ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ released two years ago won critical appreciation and grossed ₹ 650 crores worldwide. Now, ‘Bahubali: the Conclusion’, earned ₹ 6000 crores in just five days after its release.  With the film, Prabhas’s image as pan- Indian superstar has been established.

The dedication and commitment of SS Rajamouli and his cast, crew paid off finally with the thumping success of the film. The film broke almost all records and made every Telugu proud.

Though the film is slated for release by the end of the month, the Bahubali team has plans to hold publicity hungama throughout the month.

If you move any Telugu film lover, he starts talking about Bahubali and the trailer or the audio launch/pre release function was held in such a way which is like a never before or never after mode. The expectations rose to sky high and no other director could meet such high expectations except Rajamouli. The entire film industry in India, be it Bollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood, Mollywood or Sandalwood, everyone is treating as if the film is theirs. For the first time, the film is expected to collect not less than Rs 1,000 crore or even higher.

Even the publicity of the film is also at that range. By the time the film is released, almost all the exams will be over and all the students would be free and not only in the Telugu states, but across the globe, the first week’s price range is going to be much higher. If sources are to be believed, the Bahubali-2 (The Conclusion) would cross the Bahubali (The Beginning) collection in less than three days. Moreover, there are no big film releases in the near future. So undoubtedly the film would remain the number 1 across India in the first week collections, the record which can’t be erased even by Rajamouli once again. After the release of the film, Rajamouli could be considered the top-most director of the entire Indian film industry.
