Rana Daggubati a Telugu and Bollywood actor, had went through rigorous martial arts training for his upcoming movie “Bahubali” by Magnum Opus. Looks like someones look just came on another level!
After doing six months of training before shooting the film, it had still continued on sets with three Vietnamese martial art experts Tang, Son, and Luck. They had the characters do weapon training because the movie had some weaponry fighting scenes. With all this training it had helped the cast be more flexible and also have quick reflexes when shooting.
“Peter Hines the Action Director for Bahubali, had me training with 3 special fighters from Vietnam for about 6 to 8 months. They used a combination of mixed martial arts and weapon training. The actual choreography for the action scenes began after this where several new techniques and methods for horse riding, chariot riding and other period film action requirements. Period action scenes are heavily injury prone so it is better to be trained in advance.”
Bahubali will be a pan India release and it also be in Hindi.
