Art director Ravinder is known for his work for films like Magadheera, Eega, Attarintiki Daredi, S/O Satyamurthy and Duvvada Jagannadham. His set work created with the cost of Rs 3 Cr for Anushka starrer ‘Bhaagamathie’ has now become talking point.

Much of the story of Ashok G directed ‘Bhaagamathie’ revolves around a bungalow as an IAS officer named Chanchala transforms into Baagamathi when she was locked by a villain gang. Ravinder reportedly created this set in just 29 days. The cost of the set is Rs 3 Cr.

“We drew many sketches and at last erected a huge set in 28,000 sqft. A total of 189 stone pillars of different heights from 10 to 40 fts were used to construct the massive set of Bhaagamathie bungalow," Ravinder said. 

Giving more insights into the making of this set, he further adds, "The two floor building which has 12 rooms had lift facility in those days. Laborers used to lift this lift with help of ropes. We designed such special lift for the film. Lots of fiber was used and we took extreme care about colors. You will find unique colors which weren’t used by anyone earlier. Photo frames of rulers of 10 ft height weighing 3 kgs each will be seen hanged to the walls. 200 workers worked for 29 days- day and night to construct the bungalow set. "

"Like for Maryada Ramanna, we’re trying for patent rights for Bhaagamathie bungalow set as well. Celebrities like Thota Tharani, Gautham Menon, VV Vinayak, Ram Charan, Allu Arjun, Sukumar, Sai Dharam Tej and few others visited the set and appreciated my team’s hard work,” informed Ravinder who is contented with the response for the set.
