The pre-release event of 'Baahubali-2' was held yesterday evening at Ramoji Film City. Almost all the important members of Team Baahubali attended the event. One of the highlights of the event was Krishnam Raju’s Speech.
He shared that western film directors always criticize Indian films and in one such incident, Steven Spielberg had commented that Indians make thousands of films with same story and he is not interested in even talking about Indian films.
“Baahubali-2 has taken the prestige of our industry to global level. Steven Spielberg once refused to comment when asked about Indian film industry. When insisted, he said, 'I don't know how they could make thousands of films with just one story'. He should watch 'Baahubali' and then comment again. Rajamouli may become greater than Spielberg. I am very proud of the technicians who have worked on this film. I have interacted with many politicians in the 50 years of my filmi career. They would speak very lightly about film industry because the turnover involved was small. But, of late, wherever I go, they are wowed by 'Baahubali'. Recently, I went to UP to campaign for the BJP. Modi garu, the great Prime Minister, talked about 'Baahubali'. During a rally, he said, 'I am Kattappa', acting as the protector. The people were surprised. That is the craze of Baahubali” Krishnam Raju said.
