Technicians, that too art directors get acknowledgment hardly ever. Art director Ravinder who worked for several super hit Telugu films such as Chatrapathi, Magadheera, Maryada Ramanna, Eega, Attarintiki Daredi, S/O Satyamurthy, Duvvada Jagannadham etc. is the production designer for G Ashok directed ‘Bhaagamathie’ starring Anushka Shetty.
It may be mentioned here that, the house set designed by Ravinder for Maryada Ramanna had got patent rights which is a great attainment.
Now, everybody is talking about the bungalow in Bhaagamathie. It took nearly 29 days to erect the Bhaagamathie bungalow set which cost Rs 3 crores for producers.
Here are highlights of Bhaagamathie bungalow which is treated to be one of the lead characters in the film:
Ravinder was asked to design 500 years old bungalow which was actually constructed as part of the story by a king to gift his wife. Since the production team couldn’t find the right bungalow of their requirement anywhere in the world, they had made their mind to design and construct one for the film.
“We drew many sketches and at last erected a huge set in 28,000 sqft. A total of 189 stone pillars of different heights from 10 to 40 fts were used to construct the massive set of Bhaagamathie bungalow.
The two floor building which has 12 rooms had lift facility in those days. Laborers used to lift this lift with help of ropes.
We designed such special lift for the film. Lots of fiber was used and we took extreme care about colors. You will find unique colors which weren’t used by anyone earlier.
Photo frames of rulers of 10 ft height weighing 3 kgs each will be seen hanged to the walls. 200 workers worked for 29 days- day and night to construct the bungalow set.
Since producers of UV Creations didn’t bother about budget, we could build a perfect bungalow which cost Rs 3 crores.
Half of Bhaagamathie story is portrayed in this set. Like for Maryada Ramanna, we’re trying for patent rights for Bhaagamathie bungalow set as well.
Celebrities like Thota Tharani, Gautham Menon, VV Vinayak, Ram Charan, Allu Arjun, Sukumar, Sai Dharam Tej and few others visited the set and appreciated my team’s hard work,” informed Ravinder who is contented with the response for the set.
Hence we need to wait till January 26th to witness majesty in each and every corner of Bhaagamathi bungalow.
