Actor Rana Daggubati said that the film's team never anticipated that it will make it so big.
"When the film was happening, we knew it would be big. But we never knew it will have such a massive impact. It has turned out to be one of the top films in the country," Rana told IANS on the sidelines of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week 2015.
An international version of the film, which is 23 minutes shorter than the Indian theatrical version and edited by Vincent Tabaillon of The Incredible Hulk fame, will be screened at BIFF.
"International release is coming up in a week's time," Rana said.
Rana was the showstopper for designer Anushree Reddy along with actress Amy Jackson, who will be next seen opposite Akshay Kumar in Singh Is Bliing.
When asked about his forthcoming projects, Rana said that he is working on an action-comedy project.
"I am doing my own production venture, which will be an action comedy. But we don't have a title yet. It's a trilingual film. It will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Baahubali is the answer for multilinguals," he added.
Baahubali - The Beginning is about two brothers at war for an ancient kingdom. The movie which also stars Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia in lead roles has become one of the highly successful dubbed films.
The film was released simultaneously on July 10 in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi. It has so far raked in more than Rs 500 crores in all four versions. (Also Read: Baahubali, India's Most Expensive Film, Makes Over 500 Cr at Box Office)
