Baahubali, just the name reminds of you many brilliant things in the film including the graphics used in many scenes and the ‘Kattappa’ question. All this was created by director SS Rajamouli who, in his career spread over more than a decade, has only made 10 movies and all of them are super hit films. And there are quite a few things that the world didn’t know about SS Rajamouli who created one of the biggest hits in Indian cinema.
On his birthday today, we take a look at few of the things that we didn’t know about Baahubali director SS Rajamouli:
Rajamouli is the only director in Indian cinema who has a 100% success ratio with all his 10 movies turning out to be sensational hits. Here are the movies that he has directed – Student No.1, Simhadri, Sye, Chatrapathi, Vikramarkudu, Yamadonga, Magadheera, Maryada Ramanna, Eega, Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.
Rajamouli’s family is involved in all of his films along with him which includes the recent Baahubali franchise. His wife, Rama Rajamouli, was the stylist for Baahubali and his elder brother, M.M.Keeravani is the music composer for all of Rajamouli’s films. Besides these two, his father K.V.Vijayendra Prasad is a writer(Baahubali) amd his first cousin Kalyan Malik, also a music composer, worked on the sound mixing of Baahubali.
Rajamouli started his career on television and directed few daily soaps before venturing into films. His first television soap, Shanthi NIvasam, which was broadcasted on a popular Telugu channel. The show was produced by popular director K.Raghavendra Rao who gave him his first breakthrough in films.
Rajamouli’s favourite actor is Malayalam top star Mohanlal. Rajamouli wanted to make a film with Mohanlal in the lead and mythology theme but the project didn’t go on floors because of unknown reasons. Rajamouli has been hinting that he might work with The Complete Actor Mohanlal in the future.
Surprisngly, Rajamouli calls himself an atheist but most of his films have references to stories from books like Ramayana and Mahabharata. His latest film, Baahubali, has a lot of reference to lord Shiva and few scenes have visuals displaying that.
