Actor Rana Daggubati feels that films from South industry have always been pan-India but the globally renowned film "Baahubali" showed the way to make business the right way in a pan-India arrangement.

Rana played the role of antagonist Bhallaladeva in the two-part film franchise. "I was an audience before an actor and to me whether I was watching a Hindi film or a Telugu film the sentiment was the same. I live in Hyderabad and for me be it (Amitabh) Bachchan sir's film or a Kamal Haasan film, the vibes were the same. Time and again there were films which broke the barriers.

Like Mani (Ratnam) sir's film 'Roza', that was originally a Tamil film. Nobody in the Hindi belt had a problem with that. They loved it as much as the South Indians loved it. Audience neverA has a problem (with language)," says the actor, who recently released his film "Aranya" in Telugu and "Kadaan" in Tamil.

The Hindi version of the same film is titled "Haathi Mere Saathi" but it had to be postponed due to the rising Covid cases in Maharashtra.
