"Baahubali is a slap on our face and I'm that has happened. That led to a revolution in Bollywood now. We are coming up with many of such magnum opuses now" said ace producer, director and show host Karan Johar, who is now releasing "2 Point O" in Hindi arena.
Sharing his thoughts on south films, especially Telugu films, dominating the Bollywood scenario, he said, "The biggest blockbuster in Hindi right now is a Telugu film dubbed into Hindi. And the second biggest blockbuster, a Hindi film, stands almost 150 crores behind it". But he pointed that the arrival of Baahubali helped them understand how technology will help to narrate some compelling dramas.
"Baahubali, Robot and now 2 Point O are going to challenge us big time, and I'm happy that they are challenging. Because that helps us stand on our toes and deliver something bigger. We have only Bhansali doing such biggies all the while and now many others are trying to come up with such films" Karan Johar added.
Well, that sums up how Rajamouli's Baahubali has impacted Bollywood, and what are those filmmakers thinking right now.
