Mumbai: The second instalment of the two-part magnum opus – Baahubali - starring Rana Daggubati, Prabhas and Tamannaah Bhatia promises to be bigger than the first one.
Rana, who essays the role of the main antagonist – Bhallaladeva – in the film, says the action sequences in Baahubali: The Conclusion are bigger and better than the first part.
"The action scenes in 'Baahubali 2' will make the first film look small. They have been amazingly shot and are mind blowing. We were left awestruck while filming them, so I can imagine how the audience will be blown away by them," Rana told PTI in an interview.
The 31-year-old actor said the fans should expect a far more enthralling experience than the film as its scale is much larger than the first movie.
"The second film will bring a totality to the story. People will get to know why Kattapa killed Baahubali! And the other interesting aspect is the large scale, which is far bigger than the prequel's.
"During the first time we were experimenting, things weren't established, but now 'Baahubali' has become a brand so, we have shot it accordingly," he said.
On his own physical transformation, Rana said it took him six-eight months to get the bulkier look.
"It was a lot of hard work. When we started I was already fitter, but they needed more...It took six-eight months of aggressive training and strict diet," he said.
Telugu star Prabhas, who essays the titular role became a household name soon after the release of the first part of the film. The magnum opus which wowed even the international audiences had breathtaking visuals, larger-than-life sets and jaw-dropping stunts besides mesmerising special effects.
The second half of the film is slated to release on April 28, 2017.
