National Award winning art director Sabu Cyril on Monday said nearly 2000 people worked under his supervision on S.S. Rajamouli’s “Baahubali” franchise daily for five years.
“The experience of working on two parts of ‘Baahubali’ has been equivalent to working on ten films,” Cyril said at the debut edition of India Today Conclave South here.
Despite working on over 100 films in his career, he said: “The learning on working in ‘Baahubali’ has been immense. From being an art director to being an engineer and architect, I’ve donned several hats while working on this project.”
Talking about the scale of work that has been going on in the project for over the last five years, he said: “On an average, 500 to 2000 people worked with me daily since (its) inception.”
“Baahubali: The Conclusion”, the second film in the franchise, will see actor Prabhas return as Amarendra Baahubali.
With the second part in the franchise slated for release on April 28, 2017, the makers are wrapping up the project as quickly as possible.
