Replica of Hanging Gardens of Babylon for Gulebakavali
A grand set replicating the world famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon has been erected for the intro song of Prabhu Deva in Gulebakavali. When director Kalyan suggested the idea of designing a set replicating Babylon Gardens, production designer Kathir improvised it by designing a miniature with two hanging cars.
Sources say that the set work is completed with the help of more than five hundred workers in a ten-acre land situated in the outskirts of Chennai city.
Telugu cinema’s leading choreographer Johnny discussed with Prabhu Deva for the song conceptualization and they have done rehearsals in Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai for more than ten days. Several models from Mumbai will also be dancing with Prabhu Deva in this peppy song composed by Vivek-Mervin.
