Ever since, Bhaagamathie trailer is out, Bhaagamathie Adda and Bhaagamathie bungalow have become the talking point. Not many know the kinda toil that went into building Bhaagamathie bungalow. Apparently, 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 are treated to be one of the lead characters in the film.
Art director Ravinder was apparently asked to design a 500 -year-old bungalow that 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 up 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.Ravinder, who worked for several noted Telugu films and is the production designer for Anushka Shetty’s Bhaagamathie, enthused confidence that his work would get due appreciation after Bhaagmathie’s release.
Ravinder has several acclaimed films under his belt. Few of his works include Chatrapathi, Magadheera, Maryada Ramanna, Eega, Attarintiki Daredi, S/O Satyamurthy, Duvvada Jagannadham. It may be mentioned here that the house set designed by Ravinder for Maryada Ramanna had got patent rights which is a great attainment. He is now keeping his fingers crossed for the final result of Bhaagamathie.
