Frenchman Tabaillon’s credits include The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans, Taken 2 and most recently, Now You See Me.
Baahubali: The Beginning, the first of a two-part epic which will see its sequel releasing next year, has set box office records in India and abroad. According to its producers, the film’s opening weekend box-office revenue reached almost $25 million (1.63 billion rupees), considered the highest for any Indian film ever.
Tabaillon began his career editing popular French feature films, notably for Luc Besson’s company EuropaCorp. His other prominent projects include The Prodigies and The Legend of Hercules.
The international version of Baahubali is to be screened at international festivals and shown to sales agents and distributors before a wider release globally. The cut should be ready by the end of August.
“This version will differ from the original film, which was just released successfully in India and select cities across the world for the Indian diaspora,” said a statement from the film’s producers.
Baahubali revolves around a dynastic struggle and features actors Rana Daggubati and Prabhas, and actresses Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia. The film is directed by S. S. Rajamouli and produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni of Arka Mediaworks.
