Siddharth Kapur: It takes courage to back someone else's vision

By HT

Mumbai, Sept. 22 -- Siddharth Roy Kapur has backed a large number of films through the span of his career, including last year's smash hit, Dangal. 
 
However, when asked about the production of expensive films such as the Baahubali series, he says it takes a lot of courage for anyone to back someone else's vision without knowing what the end result would be.
 
Siddharth says, "I think the budget that Rajamouli (film-maker) ended the film with was four times of what he said he would make it for. It takes courage for someone to say, 'I am giving you a blank cheque. Go ahead and do whatever you want to do over the next five years. I believe in your vision completely'. I have to say, it would have been a difficult call for anyone to make."
 
A source says, "For Dangal, not much had to be created on the sets, and there was not much back and forth for the production. They had already planned everything. However, Baahubali is one of those projects in which the initial production budget was increased by a large number."
