Director SS Rajamouli got emotional on the last day of work on the Baahubali franchise on Tuesday. The director said he was experiencing a mixed emotion on the day that officially marks the culmination of a journey that he started about four years ago.
The film has been in the making for the past two years and with VFX and computer graphics playing a crucial part, there is no doubt that team would still be applying the final touches on the film with just 10 days left for the release.
“Last working day. Hopefully. What a journey. What an experience. I am both smiling with joy and wincing with pain,” Rajamouli tweeted.
