Rana Dag­gu­bati would love to do a su­per­hero film in In­dian con­text

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Rana Dag­gu­bati, who dubbed for a ver­sion of the Hol­ly­wood su­per­hero film Avengers: In­fin­ity War, is in­ter­ested in the genre in the In­dian con­text.

Asked if he would like to do a su­per­hero film, Rana says, “I did one called Baahubali. That’s a su­per­hero for you.” He played the main an­tag­o­nist, Bhal­laladeva, in the Baahubali fran­chise, which com­prised Baahubali: The Be­gin­ning (2015) and Baahubali 2: The Con­clu­sion (2017).

What about play­ing the good guy? “I would love to do some­thing in the In­dian space, In­dian think­ing and writ­ing. Be­ing a su­per­hero is an ex­pe­ri­ence that you give to the au­di­ence. The rea­son why the Hulk, Thanos, and all are big char­ac­ters is be­cause once you go to the­atres, you en­ter that world... cre­ated by the film­mak­ers,” he says.

Rana had said ear­lier, “Baahubali has done to In­dian cin­ema what Star Wars has done to Amer­ica.”
