Bahubali stands for biggest, nicest, boldest way of storytelling: Shah Rukh Khan

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has hailed ‘Bahubali’ calling it the “biggest, nicest and boldest” way of storytelling. He also said the vision and the thought of making a film like ‘Bahubali’ proves “no guts.. no glory”.

“I saw ‘Baahubali’ part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It’s an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well. Not just the success with numbers but the vision, just the thought… No guts, no glory… and ‘Baahubali’ stands for that”

The actor said the fast-advancing technology will always be a big part of cinema, but the industry was making “wonderful films” even before technology came in.

“Technology, of course, will always be a huge part of cinema. I believe that. I would never discount the fact that other kinds of films can also be made. They’re fantastic and beautiful… Before technology came in, we still made wonderful films.

“But if you want to create that big cinema and that big dream to sell to a big number of people, you have to have guts to take that storytelling on and say it in the biggest, nicest, boldest way possible. ‘Baahubali’ stands for that” Khan said.

The superstar awaits the release of his romantic film directed by Imtiaz Ali, also starring Anushka Sharma in the lead.



  • U have guts Mr. SRK , u invested ur blood and money in Ra.One but unfortunately 1 or 2 things didnt fall in place which includes Luck as well, otherwise we would have had a huge franchise with Ra.One series …

  • The last line of the article proves how small, not so bold and boring your films have become. Even after achieving everything and becoming 2nd richest actor in the world and most influential you are stuck to those 2 rupees love story and hand raising.

    I was your fan but lost interest in your films in the last 5 years.

  • Well said SRK . No guts No glory . The success of Bahubali and Bahubali 2 lies in the storytelling of SS Rajamouli and top notch writing by Vijayendra Prasad . Prabhas, Rana, Sathyaraj, Anushka, Tamannaah and Ramya also deserve huge round of applause for trying to break new grounds and doing both these​ films with passion and obsession . !!!!!!

  • People around the world know India due to SRK. So Baahubali was seen as an Indian film, aka SRK country’s film.
    So credit of Baahubali 2 overseas success goes only to SRK.

  • Baahubali 2 was Dharma production film, and Dharma productions was built due to SRK films success.
    So credit of Baahubali 2 success goes only to SRK.
    Power of King.

  • When can we expect such films from you sir? Still stuck with crap fest director like Imtiyaaz Ali?
    Where is vision? Where is scale? Where is story telling?
    Do u realize how behind you have been left? Even Akki is marching ahead
    A die hard fan of u, unfortunately to say the least.
    YES If ur crap fest cinema cum script choice continues then one day all srkians who once said “Proud to be SRK fan” will say “Unfortunately we are srk fans”

    Hope u understand your potential
    P.S. I know some pseudo die hard fans are gonna call me “chameleon”

  • Even Robot was offered to SRK but he opted to do Ra-One. Imagine where SRK would be if he did Robot

  • Srk and Salman are so kind to Bahubali maker’s and not jealous like the Ace khan who is busy these day with Rakesh roshan’s Chinese Calculator to cross bahubali 2 Any how ..

    Salman is real superstar to appreciate work of everyone followed by SRK .

  • Lol!! No other stars praised Baahubali 2. Akshay tweeted about it and praised the whole team, No article on it. Srk didn’t see Pt 2 and praises the series, article made by indicine. Wow Indicine 👏

  • Shahrukh Khan too has guts to try something like a Ra.One or FAN, even though they haven’t worked it’s good that he is still daring to work on something like the Dwarf film. All the best sir.

    But what the hell @indicine, even Akshay had praised Bahubali 2 on Twitter yesterday. Why didn’t you mention or make an article on it????? Disappointed!

  • Dharma did the distribution of the Hindi dubbed Version, but ShahRukh’s RedChillies VFX was involved in the making of Bahubali 2.

    He definitely has the guts to do bold things but somethimes not the luck to achieve what he wants to. Doesn’t make him get ‘weak in the knees’ :-) Hats off!

  • Hope you will learn something from baahubali n take guts n make some good quality films rather sticking to those boring romantic , and irritating comedy movies..

  • Thank u srk for mentioning BAHUBALI
    U have guts and courage to appreciate others work
    U remark on BaHuBALI touch my heart

  • SRK’s popularity has definitely hit a low… Article about him used to attract as many as 200 comments, but here even one page is not full…


  • It takes humility to appreciate openly another’s success. A big lesson for the other 2 Khans. Success belongs to everyone alike, it’s no special right for a certain population. Kudos to SRK!
