In an interview, Prabhas said that it was not easy to shoot the action episodes of Baahubali, which are choreographed by stunt master Peter Heins. "Initially, I gave 80 days for the action episodes, but it extended to nearly 120 days. On the whole, I gave 300 days for the action episodes of the film," Deccan Chronicle quoted Prabhas as saying.

Prabhas says that the makers spent massive amount of money on the action scenes and thousands of people worked on them, "It was not that easy to shoot the action episodes. After we completed one scene, it would take three to four hours to set up another scene and also, each episode cost lakhs of rupees. The whole atmosphere was like a big factory with thousands of employees," added the Baahubali star.
