The magnum opus Baahubali made the global cinema world stand up and take notice of the grandeur Indian cinema was capable of and the film has taken Indian cinema to a great height. After becoming first film in Indian cinema to earn a collection of more than Rs.1000 crores, Baahubali had a similar run in Japan too making it the highest earning non-Japanese cinema in the country. Baahubali was screened at numerous film festivals across the globe and director SS Rajamouli received accolades from all over the world for his vision and dedication to make a film of that scale. And recently, Rajamouli was invited to the Pakistan International Film Festival and the director was quite excited about his trip to the neighboring nation. Rajamouli is currently in Pakistan speaking at the Pakistan International Film Festival about the experiences of making Baahubali and the kind of warmth the nation has for Pakistani artists. Various platforms of social media are abuzz with photos and videos of SS Rajamouli form the Pakistan International Film Festival. Here are few pictures and a video of SS Rajamouli at the Pakistan International Film Festival:

Speaking at the event, Rajamouli spoke about what he thought about Pakistan and why Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram, he felt, was the biggest enemy of India. “Since our childhood, we felt Pakistan was our enemy and our biggest enemy was Wasim Akram. But as we grew up and things like social media and globalisation came into picture, we realised the enemies, we thought to be, are the same people as we are,” said Rajamouli.

SS Rajamouli was invited to the Pakistan International Film Festival and the filmmaker seemed quite excited about it. Taking to Twitter, Rajamouli announced about this and wrote – “Baahubali has given me opportunities to travel to a number of countries… The most exciting of them all is now, Pakistan. Thank you Pakistan international film festival, Karachi for the invite.” With all the bitterness between the two nations in place, cinema keeps the ties between the nations warm and proves why the artform is bigger many things.

      Also do these Bollywood people discuss why ISI backed Pak terrorists kill innocent Indian soldiers in Kashmir? Can they persuade Pak politicians and people of Pakistan to surrender Kashmir to India to end all conflict? Bollywood guys are the biggest hypocrites to see when they are with their Pakistani fans.

        Maybe they could ask the Indian Government to surrender Kashmir to Pakistan and stop killing the Kashmiris and end all conflict?

      If he can survive communal riots, aids, female baby killings, dowry deaths, stunting, farmer suicides, dysentery epidemics then he can survive terrorism too.
