In an interview to IANS, Rana Daggubati said, "There are about seven films in the pipeline and I need to figure out where I am doing what. And what I start shooting immediately is Baahubali in Telugu, Hindi and Tamil with very popular director SS Rajamouli who made Makkhi." The actor added, "It's a big war film. It will take up a large part of this year and a little bit of next year."
After starting his acting career with Telugu political drama Leader in 2010, Rana has worked in four Telugu movies and two Hindi films, Dum Maro Dum being his debut Bollywood venture. He says though the filmmaking madness is same everywhere, Bollywood is much larger as an industry and offers more opportunities.
Rana Daggubati said, "The reason I got attracted to Hindi cinema is that as an industry it is very large. You have many genres of films. For example, a film like Dum Maro Dum became a big mainstream film here, but if I would have done it in Telugu, it would have become a small city-based film. So it's much larger here and you have opportunity to experiment much more."
