In an earlier interview to IANS, Rana had spoken up about his fascination for Marvel Comics.

He had said: “I felt the sheer power of Thanos while dubbing and tried my best to bring it through the voice. It was fascinating because the entire story is told from the point of view of Thanos.

“I have grown up reading Marvel Comics and Marvel movies with their intricately woven storylines. It is fascinating to see how Marvel has created characters and stories that resonate so well with audiences across the globe, making movies at a scale that one had never before imagined.”

On the film front, Rana will next be seen in NTR biopic ‘Mahanayakudu’ and Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Housefull 4’.

Rana would love to do superhero film in Indian space

Rana Daggubati, who had dubbed for a version of the Hollywood superhero film Avengers: Infinity War, is interested in the genre if told in Indian context.

Asked if Daggubati would like to do a superhero film, he said: “I did one called Baahubali.

“That’s a superhero for you,” the actor, who played the main antagonist in the Baahubali franchise, said with a laugh.

But what about playing the good guy?

“I would love to do something in the Indian space, Indian thinking and writing. Being a superhero is an experience that you give to the audience. The reason why the Hulk, Thanos and all are big characters is because once you go to theatres, you enter that world… created by the filmmakers,” he said.

Baahubali has done to Indian cinema what Star Wars has done to America. I really feel we are in our best time now,” the actor added.
