‘Bahubali’ goes beyond the big screen: The epic to be established as graphic novel collection of SS Rajamouli
The graphic novel will probably be based on the hit movie and certainly will unravel storylines of the characters which couldn’t be revealed in Bahubali.
“Whatever you are going to see isn’t an offshoot from the movie, but comes from the built-in narrative. There’s much more story, play, action, adventure interwoven into the comic strip,” Rajamouli told PTI.
“When we began the movie, we created the entire universe of Bahubali. It’s not only the storyline of the film you’ve observed; this is a narrative of every single character, realm, of where these folks come from a story. All that’s been studied and certainly will be (present) in the funny,” he added.
The manager said the on-line platform will make sure the movie reaches a broader audience.
Can you picture how many those who viewed the movie? Two crores. That’s because we’ve quite less amount of theaters,” he said.
“We’ve 20 crore displays for individuals to view our content. Those who’d just heard about the movie can see the content that is brand new at the tap of a button. It is going to get a broader reach to the film.”
Sharad Devarajan, co-founder, Graphic India said the on-line content will be a “standalone” encounter, (while) not striving to connect the very first installment of the movie to its forthcoming sequel.
“It is exciting for all of us to come in and unlock all these mediums, (such as) comic strips, cartoon games for the picture. This isn’t around bridging one picture to another. It is a standalone entertainment experience like Star Wars and Marvel Universe.”
The team said they’re going to venture into other mediums such as printed novels and other products in future, even though the focus is on digital content as of now.
“Graphic India and Arka Media Functions are also focusing on a larger animated project, tentatively titled, Bahubali: The Dropped Legends, which has been developed and created by Rajamouli, Arka Media Works Ceo Shobu Yarlagadda, and Devarajan,” the group stated.
