Filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli's mega-budget Telugu-Tamil bilingual period-drama "Baahubali", which has been in pre-production phase for nearly a year now, is set to go on floors here July 6.

A lot of time was spent training the film's lead cast, which features Anushka Shetty, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati, in sword-fighting and horse riding over the past few months.

"After almost one year of extensive pre-production and planning, (I'm) pleased and excited to announce the start of shooting of 'Baahubali' from July 6," the film's producer Shobu Yarlagadda posted on his Twitter page.

This will be Rajamouli's first full-length digital film.

"I shot very few shots with digital cameras in 'Eega' (and, therefore) 'Baahubali' will be my first fully digitally shot film," posted Rajamouli on Twitter.

Even though the film will be shot in Telugu and Tamil, it will be released in Hindi, Malayalam and a few foreign languages too.

Rajamouli also clarified that the film is not being made in IMAX.

"(I'm hearing) lots of rumours regarding 'Baahubali' being shot on IMAX cameras. No, we are not! We are using Arri Alexa XT," he added.

The reasons for not using IMAX camera is cost and shortage of equipment.

"(IMAX cameras) are very expensive. There are only six IMAX cameras that are manufactured and heavy competition for their booking," said Rajamouli.

The film is also being produced by Prasad Devineni and K. Raghavendra Rao, while M.M. Keeravani will compose the music.
