The scenes shot after the actress put on weight have been avoided.
Director S.S. Rajamouli recently released the trailer of his much-awaited film, Baahubali 2, which went on to create various records because of the number of views it has received. But when you look at the trailer closely, you’ll realise just how smart the director is.
“Rajamouli has shown Anushka prominently in the trailer, but those scenes were shot nearly four years back, when the actress was much leaner. Even though scenes featuring Anushka were shot recently as well, he didn’t show those because she has put on a lot of weight and looks different,” says a source.
Anushka’s character in the first part of the movie was more like a cameo and the actress’ role is expected to be lengthier in the second part. The director even indicated during a press conference that most of the second part of the film was shot simultaneously with the first part.
“The director and his team have used computer graphics to make Anushka look as lean as she was four years ago. That’s why the movie took time,” adds the source.The trailer has crossed the 50 million mark on the Internet and the film will hit the screens on April 28.
