“Baahubali: The Beginning” has been the first and the topmost South Indian flick that has managed to stun the audiences all across the country. This magnum opus of S.S. Rajamouli not only made the audiences proud but also the actor who were associated with the same. Recently actress Tamannaah Bhatia said that ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ has been the most unexpected thing of her decade-long career so far.
Tamannaah Bhatia said, “It came to me when I was going through the lowest lows of my career. After a series of failures, to be part of a project like ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ is dream-like, and it’s easily the most unexpected thing of my career.”
Tamannaah Bhatia was seen in this magnum opus in the character of ‘Avantika’ who was a rebellious warrior and now, for the second instalment of the movie, she says she has an ever better role.
Talking about her role in the movie she said, “It’s a really good role. We still have some minor portion to shoot which will be wrapped up in December.”
Quipping about how she’d do anything to be part of such a proud project she said, “I would die and even kill if required to be part of ‘Baahubali’.”
Tamannaah Bhatia is now gearing up to work in the Tamil remake of Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Queen’ where she will be seen reprising Kangana Ranaut’s role.
Regarding this Kangana Ranaut starrer she said, “Ever since I saw ‘Queen’, I wanted to be part of its remake, even though I wasn’t sure if it will be remade. What makes ‘Queen’ special is that it’s one of those rare women-centric films which succeeded in reaching out to everybody, across all sections of the audience.”
She further added that, “I felt liberated when I saw ‘Queen’, and I can’t wait to start working on the remake. The fact that Revathi ma’am is directing it makes it even more special because she was the inspiration for my character in ‘Devi’.”
The film will be helmed by veteran actress Revathi and will feature dialogues by actress-filmmaker Suhasini Mani Ratnam.
“I think it’s going to be a great combination. More than a remake, this will be treated as an adaptation as a lot of things have to be changed to suit Tamil sensibilities,” added Tamannaah Bhatia.
