Didn’t use body double in ‘Baahubali’ for authenticity: Anushka

Chennai, June 6 (IANS) Actress Anushka Shetty says she didn’t seek the help of a body double for the action sequences in upcoming Telugu action-drama “Baahubali” as she wanted the scenes to be as authentic as possible.

“Rajamouli (filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli) sir was very particular about authenticity from the beginning. He wouldn’t even compromise on a small scene. Hence, I performed all my stunts on my own and didn’t take the help of a body double,” Anushka told IANS.

She said that she wasn’t apprehensive about doing the stunts on her own.

“All of us were rigorously trained for months. In fact, we were asked to fight in real time as Rajamouli sir felt it would look realistic on screen,” she added.

However, Anushka had one minor concern while shooting.

“I laugh a lot, especially between shots and it’s tough for me to control. There have been so many instances where my director had to request me to stop laughing and come into the mood of the scene,” she said.

Rajamouli-directed “Baahubali” is said to be India’s most expensive motion picture. It also stars Prabhas Varma, Rana Daggubati, Tamannah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan in important roles.

The film releases world-wide on July 10 in Tamil and Hindi as well.
