“No guts, no glory… and ‘Baahubali‘ stands for that”: Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan praises Baahubali 2 and ‘inspirational’ director SS Rajamouli

Nowadays Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is what one can see in the headlines. Truly, the type of hype SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus has got at Box Office is only a dreamlike to the most. While many famous faces from the film industry came forward to appreciate Rajamouli’s venture, King Khan Shah Rukh Khan‘s name is fresh added to the list.


Talking to IANS as part of an email interview done regarding the success of his TED Talk in Van cover, SRK said,


“I saw ‘Baahubali‘ part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It’s an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well.”


“Not just the success with numbers but the vision, just the thought… No guts, no glory… and ‘Baahubali‘ stands for that,” Shah Rukh told.

“Technology, of course, will always be a huge part of cinema. I believe that. I would never discount the fact that other kinds of films can also be made. They’re fantastic and beautiful… Before technology came in, we still made wonderful films.”


“But if you want to create that big cinema and that big dream to sell to a big number of people, you have to have guts to take that storytelling on and say it in the biggest, nicest, boldest way possible. Baahubali stands for that,” added the Raees actor.


The 51 year old actor found Rajamouli inspirational indeed.


“It’s not just the success of ‘Baahubali‘, but the fact that there was someone making ‘Baahubali’ part one. Mr S.S. Rajamouli is always inspirational… Whichever film he’ll make. And there are some other directors, producers also who do that.”


“It’s heartening and encourages every filmmaker. Me too,” Shah Rukh said.


Before Shah Rukh, maestros and superstars lauded Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and director Rajamouli’s risk taking.
