NYFA Alumnus Rakesh Varre Appears in Biggest Blockbuster in the History of Indian Cinema

May 12, 2017 The Indian blockbuster “Baahubali: The Conclusion” opened April 28 across 9,000 screens worldwide — including 6,500 in India in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi language versions — and has already amassed an estimated $81.2 million. Now well on its way to smashing box office records for an Indian film, Arka Mediaworks’ “Baahubali: The Conclusion,” directed by S.S. Rajamouli, has already surpassed the 2016 hit “Sultan” starring Salman Khan, which previously held the Indian opening weekend record with $51.4 million.


“Baahubali: The Conclusion” also opened at number three at the North American box office with $10.1 million across 425 screens. This includes $1.8 million from 45 IMAX screens, the highest North American opening for a foreign-language film.

Appearing in the film as the character Setu Patti is New York Film Academy alumnus Rakesh Varre, who says he had an “outstanding experience” in the Acting for Film, Filmmaking, and Screenwriting programs.

“Taking that experience from NYFA, I was able to act as a major supporting role in ‘Baahubali,’” said Varre. “It’s the most expensive movie to date in Indian cinema.”

Varre acts in a film that includes Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia.

“Baahubali: The Conclusion” is a sequel to 2015’s “Baahubali: The Beginning,” which grossed over $100 million worldwide.
