- The team faced two obstacles while strategizing for Baahubali
- "I had confidence in Rajamouli," said Shobu Yarlagadda
- The Baahubali films received a record breaking response
First off, the makers decided the film would release in two parts. "The problem was the length - it couldn't fit into three hours. We weren't sure to let go of the story. That's why we thought to do it as a two-part film. Rajamouli wanted to go back and try to accommodate it in a three-hour single film, but we stopped him from doing so," Shobu Yarlagadda said, reports IANS.
The second aim was to work towards releasing the film across the country "We started working on the Hindi release right from the first day and knew we had to do more to make it work pan India," Mr Yarlagadda said.
"I had confidence in Rajamouli. The challenge was timeline and to stick to the budget. But we did surpass our deadline and budget. It started as a Rs 120 crore project and then it went further," said Shobu Yarlagadda, who also produced Mr Rajamouli's 2010 film Maryada Ramanna.
