Highlights of India Today 1st May 2017, issue:
The India Today cover story of the week, Epic Blockbuster, is on the making of 'Baahubali: The Conclusion. It looks at how one of the most expensive south-Indian movies has gone on to become a pan-India film despite anxiety over its spiralling budget. The package also has an exclusive interview with director S.S. Rajamouli where he talks about what it took to make his mega venture.
A special package on who would be chosen as the next President of India by the NDA government is also there in this week's issue. As India is very close to getting its first President from the saffron brigade, the story contains some gossip, guesswork and political arithmetic.
The issue also carries a story on the attempts the government is making to extradite the absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya. The story, The Noose Tightens, talks about how, from hiring top lawyers to exerting diplomatic pressure, the government is pulling out all the stops to get the UK to extradite the fugitive tycoon.
This week's Leisure package has an exclusive interview with actor Richa Chadha in which she talks about acting and the country's future.
The issue also comes with one free magazine: Simply Chennai.
