P.M Satheesh is worked for S.S Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali’. Regarding his experience with the film, he said “Baahubali is one of the very few films in South where a lot of importance is being given to sound recording. We dropped the idea of shooting with sync sound since the dialogue delivery has to be modified accordingly. The sound design team embeds various types of micro-phones throughout the set to record the ambient sound, which will lend a natural feel to the film. It’s necessary, because some of these sounds aren’t available in the market. It’s quite a challenge for everyone”.
