Actor Rana Daggubati has done ­different movies in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi cinema, but now he wants to save more time by doing films that can be dubbed or shot in multiple languages.

The 30-year-old, who made his Bollywood debut with Dum Maaro Dum (2011), went on to do some action-packed movies later on, but due to his ­commitments with Tamil and Telugu films, he finds it ­difficult to allocate time to three different film industries.

“I just wish that a day had more number of hours for me. There is a set frame of time that I have, and now, the search will be finding content that can be done in multiple languages, so that I can bridge that gap,” says Rana.

“I believe that content ­travels. I see Tamil films being made in Telugu or Hindi films being made in some other ­language. Such projects prove that stories, as well as actors, can travel across ­languages,” he adds.

Rana will be seen next in ­filmmaker S S Rajamouli’s ­directorial project, which is shot in Tamil and Telugu and will be dubbed in Hindi. “No matter how different the method of story making is in different industries, the ­passion for filmmaking is the same,” he says. “Everyone is ­creative and everyone has ­different stories to tell, but with equal ­enthusiasm,” adds the actor, who was last seen in Bollywood in this year’s Baby.
