Having completed a short schedule in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh, despite intermittent rains, filmmaker SS Rajamouli now heads to the US for his upcoming Telugu period-drama Baahubali, but clarifies his movie doesn't feature an international cast.
"No Hollywood actors are signed for
Baahubali. False news again," he wrote. "Thanks to the people of Kurnool, even though they turned up in numbers that we didn't imagine, they let us shoot without much difficulty. But, the rains were not as helpful," posted Rajamouli on his Twitter page.
"(I'm) preparing for the bigger and heavier schedules ahead. Meanwhile, leaving for the US for a couple of meetings for Baahubali and a family get together too," he added.
Featuring Prabhas Varma, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty in the lead, Baahubali went on floors exactly a year after the filmmaker's Telugu revenge-drama Eega was released on July 6 last year.
The film, simultaneously being made in Tamil and Telugu, is jointly produced by Shobu Yarlagadda, Prasad Devineni and K Raghavendra Rao.
