‘Bahubali’ director S.S. Rajamouli will be giving his inputs in helping build India’s state-of-the-art capital, Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh. The Chief Minister of teh state N. Chandrababu Naidu has asked a British architectural firm to take inputs from Rajamouli in finalising designs for some key government buildings in the upcoming state capital.
Famous for conceptualising the ancient city of ‘Mahismati’ in ‘Bahubali’ and ‘Bahubali 2’, the filmmaker will be flown to London in the coming weeks for his inputs to Foster and Partners firm.
The Chief Minister will visit the firm in London on October 25 to finalise the designs, during his tour to Britain and United Arab Emirates.
According to a statement from the chief minister’s office, he was happy with the waterfront, the layout and the interior designing of the legislative assembly. He, however, felt the facade can look much better to reflect world-class architecture.
The High Court designs too, will be revisited, and the firm will present their next draft in the following weeks.
Earlier this year, ‘Bahubali 2’ became the highest grossing film of all time in India.
