Shah Rukh Khan in a recent interaction gave 'Baahubali 2's' example to highlight the advancement and use of technology in Indian cinema. He is soon to quip that technology can take the Indian cinema to greater heights. However, Shah Rukh is yet to see 'Baahubali 2', a film that continues to break records worldwide.
Talking about the same to IANS, Shah Rukh said, "I saw 'Baahubali' part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It's an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well. Not just the success with numbers but the vision, just the thought... No guts, no glory... and 'Baahubali' stands for that."
The actor further added, "Technology, of course, will always be a huge part of cinema. I believe that. I would never discount the fact that other kinds of films can also be made. They're fantastic and beautiful... Before technology came in, we still made wonderful films. But if you want to create that big cinema and that big dream to sell to a big number of people, you have to have guts to take that storytelling on and say it in the biggest, nicest, boldest way possible. 'Baahubali' stands for that."
Pointing out that we need such vision, Shah Rukh concluded, "It's not just the success of 'Baahubali', but the fact that there was someone making 'Baahubali' part one. Mr S.S. Rajamouli is always inspirational... Whichever film he'll make. And there are some other directors, producers also who do that. It's heartening and encourages every filmmaker. Me too." Credits: IANS
