Rana Daggubati is riding high on success right now. His last release Baahubali to was a super hit and now he will be back with Baahubali: The Conclusion. Apart from Baahubali, his next film The Ghazi Attack has released just today in the theatres and it has been receiving outstanding response from the audiences and the critics. Especially Rana’s performance has been appreciated. India.com met the actor for a quick tête-à-tête and he was amazing.
What intrigued you to take Ghazi?
It was a story that has never been told. It was a story that was very unique. It is a piece of history which needs to be told and a a film it is a great action dram and will leave you visually impressed.
What affect does this film had on you?
There was a sense of pride when I entered this film. The second reason is that I tried something far new s, it was a stepping stone for me.
What was the most difficult part?
I won’t say difficult, but yes challenging. It took us a lot of time to learn how to do this film. A , Nobody has shot in submarine before, B It was an underwater. Everything we were learning on the go. It took us 4 to 5 months to get the work done. One thing we decided we wanted to make the film esthetically correct.
Would you like to do a lighter film?
I would love to, for me it has always been a certain mood or understanding for the film. I am a guy who doesn’t want to do general things coz others are already doing it.
Are you open to take a gay role?
Depends. If that content drives you great. In fact we were trying to put a story. If you know Shikandi from Mahabharata, we were working on that but later nothing materialised.
Tell us something about Baahubali? May be you can reveal us why did Kattappa killed Baahubali?
See that’s actually not an answer by word, it’s an answer by visual. If you see Baahubali it’s not a scene of discussion or word, it’s a scene of grandeur and feel. So that’s something the audience will see. But what I can tell you about Baahubali 2, it’s a far bigger film than part one and other thing is we have understood a lot in this film. We have learnt a lot in this one. We have sensed a lot of coincidence.
Recently your cousin Naga Chaityna got engaged to Samantha? What are your plans for marriage?
I don’t have anybody, the day I will have I will be prepared.
What kind of girl you want?
I don’t even know what kind of film I want, where can I you tell what kind of girl I want. See I am 32 year old and I have understood that you should keep no expectations.
Do you feel accepted in Bollywood now?
I have always been accepted.
Which actor or actress you want to work with?
For me it’s never an actor or actress. For me script is important, that matters to me. I love watching films of every actor. Recently I watched Dangal and I liked it very much.
Lastly what’s one thing you want to change in Bollywood?
Nothing. I have no reasons to change anything.
