- "I never came across a stumbling block," he said
- "Or felt that it is not going my way," he added
- Rajamouli is best known for directing the Baahubali series of films
Asked if he ever had the urge to quit, Rajamouli said: "I never came across a stumbling block or felt that it is not going my way. Every filmmaker will find some kind of smaller things when we feel it is not going our way and the best way to deal with it is to go and look back the source."
Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, the film's story is about the battle for the ownership of an ancient kingdom between two brothers. The story is woven together in two parts with dance, music, emotion and drama.
It also features Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
Talking about the TV premiere, he said: "Sony MAX had done a brilliant job in the way they promoted and marketed Baahubali: The Beginning in 2015 and we were hoping that they get the telecast rights this time too. They treated our film like their own baby and we couldn't have asked for a better partner to showcase our movie across millions of households."
Neeraj Vyas, Senior Executive Vice President and Business Head, Sony MAX, hopes "to reach out to many more people across the length and breadth of the nation" with the film.
