Mumbai: Actor Rana Daggubati says he is proud to be associated with superhit Indian film franchise 'Baahubali', which is now making an impact internationally in the form of a comic book.
Rana had gone to Singapore for a professional commitment when he went to a book store. He found that the store had sold a large number of copies of a comic based on the film "Baahubali" series. The comic book in Japanese language is getting a positive response in the Asian market.
"Trans media of films as comics/graphic novels and reliving all of that through merchandise for films like `Star Wars`, `Jurassic Park` or titles in the DC/Marvel cinematic universe is what I grew up on," Rana said in a statement.
"Having been part of probably the first Indian film that broke boundaries not only nationally but on all platforms available as book comics, soon as a show and going all the way to Japan as Manga comics really makes me feel fortunate... Just to be a part of something so special and open up potential of where Indian storytelling can go in the future.
"`Baahubali` has done to Indian cinema what `Star Wars` has done to America. I really feel we are in our best time now," he added.
