- Tickets are priced at Rs 1,250 and Rs 2,349
- It's spread across and area of 100 acres
The newly opened Baahubali sets have suddenly become the biggest attraction of Ramoji Film City, an official of the studio told mid-day: "A cumulative of over Rs 60 crore was spent on creating the sets of the film over two parts. Besides the set, some props too have been retained for visitors to see. We have many film students, cinema lovers and even general public visiting us. At the moment, it's the spot that is attracting maximum tourists for us."
Credit for designing the massive Baahubali sets go to not only award-winning production designer Sabu Cyril but also his team, who created some 1,500 sketches to bring Mahishmathi alive on screen. "The pre-production team had made 1500 sketches, in view of which the film was later shot," the official added.
S S Rajamouli's ambitious series of Baahubali movies have been made on a humongous budget of Rs 150 crore - which is only one-tenth of what the second part of the epic saga has made. Baahubali: The Beginning released in 2015 while The Conclusion arrived in theatres this year. Prabhas and Rana Daggubati headline the Baahubali movies while the impressive cast line-up also includes Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
