Baahubali 2 has set a benchmark for other Indian movies and filmmakers are sure to feel some pressure. But Tubelight director Kabir Khan disagrees. Kabir Khan told indianexpress.com, “We can’t take the pressure of Baahubali 2. If our film makes that much, it will be great but we are not moving ahead with that pressure in mind.” Parineeti Chopra also said, “Baahubali 2 is the biggest Indian movie of all time and is still running successfully. And I think it will continue to run successfully. But, I think if Meri Pyaari Bindu is a good film, all those who have seen Baahubali 2 will come to see our film. And if it’s a good film, it will obviously work.”
