From his debut film Student No. 1 to the latest sensation Baahubali, director S S Rajamouli has had a momentous journey in his career. After being given a break by his guru K. Raghavendra Rao in Student No.1, there was no looking back for this creative genius. He made a stream of films and has the record of not having a flop in his career. With films like Magadheera, Eega and Baahubali, Rajamouli has propelled story-telling to a different level. When news of Baahubali with Prabhas was announced, expectations were that of an intense mythological film with great war episodes. But Rajamouli had something else in store for the audience. Astounding visual effects, convincing twists and gripping narration made Baahubali and international sensation. With the second part scheduled to release on April 28, 2017, Rajamouli is gearing up to scale new heights. But there is something more that we all did not know.
The music of Tamil version of Baahubali – The Conclusion was launched recently and many celebrities from the Tamil film industry attended the event. One such personality was producer Kalaipuli S Thanu. S Thanu has produced many hits in Tamil like Suriya-Gautham Menon’s Kaakha Kaakha and Rajinikanth’s latest release Kabali. Speaking at the event S Thanu said,” Several directors have been approaching me to work under my banner but in 2004, I went to Rajamouli’s residence and asked him to do a film with Vijay. Though Rajamouli was excited with the idea, he had two more projects in the pipeline and later, both of us were busy with various other commitments.” If this combination had worked back then, Vijay’s career would have had a different shape.
