NEW DELHI: After watching the first look of Baahubali, megastar Amitabh Bachchan felt that some actions and frameworks used in the project can only be seen in progressive Hollywood films. He says he would have been happy to be part of this mega multilingual project helmed by SS Rajamouli.

During a video chat with Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati, the 72-year-old is seen shared his thoughts, and said that he’s simply “amazed and astonished” to see such “magnificent visuals”.

“So Rana, I feel very privileged to have seen this first look that you just shown me of Baahubali and I am absolutely amazed and astonished that how you have been able to recreate this magnificent visual and I’m sure of course the story is equally good.”

“You are working with Rajamouli and he is such a renowned talent. How did you conceive something like this. It’s just unimaginable,” Big B said.

The epic film, the Hindi theatrical rights of which have been bought by Bollywood’s hit filmmaker Karan Johar, will be released in multiple languages including English, French and several foreign languages.

Featuring actors Prabhas Varma, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah in the lead roles, Baahubali is scheduled to release on July 10. Big B also shares that how he feels really small in front of project like this.

“I feel so small in front of something like this because it’s a great effort. I doubt if anything like this has been seen on Indian cinema before and I hope that millions and millions of people can see this effort that has been made because it’s truly unimaginable.

He was of the opinion that this kind of structure and this kind of action or whatever the framework is usually seen in progressive Hollywood films but to have to see this here in India is amazing. He feels honoured to be part of an industry that is “inventing and making such fantastic material”.
