Rana Daggubati elated over national film awards

Interestingly, actor Rana Daggubati portrayed crucial roles in both the films.

Helmed by SS Rajamouli, Rana Daggubati starrer Baahubali: The Conclusion won three awards at the 65th National Film Awards this year. The film, taken from a real-life incident that happened near Visakhapatnam involving Pakistani warship Ghazi, was not only critically applauded, but also changed the technical face of Telugu cinema.

"Ghazi is one of the films that I am really very proud of because there was a lot of resistance when I was trying to make the film".

The Ghazi Attack, a drama that unfolds in a submarine and is set in the backdrop of the 1971 Indo-Pak war, initially had a budget of Rs 10 lakh and was to be released as a YouTube film. "I've played an antagonist for the first time in a film and that worked out extremely well and it was a big spectacle film", the actor said, referring to Baahubali 2. "It didn't had a love story or songs, which we regularly see in Telugu films". "Thanks to the committee for recognizing our teams work in Action and Visual Effects categories as well (sic)", tweeted director SS Rajamouli, who helmed Baahubali franchise. But we believed that it could become a bigger film content. But it did well at the box office in all languages - Telugu, Hindi and has now won a National award. We went ahead and did it.

"There was hope that the film would get a National Award, but I never expected it because of the stiff competition". But today, everybody is happy, especially the writers, the cinematographer, technicians and the artistes", says Sankalp, adding, "I met so many producers with the script but they were not convinced. Ghazi is an alternate genre of film, which I am very proud of.
