Compared to Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar, which earned Rs 173.82 crore, and Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium, which collected Rs 102.18 crore in its opening weekend, Baahubali 2 seems to have failed to leave a mark on the minds of the Chinese audience.
SS Rajamouli, who is in Lahore after attending the Pakistan International Film Festival, tweeted some pictures about his ‘goosebump’ moments.
Filmmaker and actor Nandita Das attended the Pakistan International Film Festival along with actor Vinay Pathak and director SS Rajamouli. The director-actor spoke about the need for independent cinema during her talk at the event.
SS Rajamouli will reach Pakistan’s capital Karachi for the special screening of his two-part epic franchise Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion at Pakistan International Film Festival (PIFF). Here are the excerpts from an e-mail interview with the organizers of PIFF.
SS Rajamouli on Thursday confirmed he has cast Jr NTR and Ram Charan Teja in his next directorial. He also shared a video announcing his next project.
Jr NTR and Ram Charan Teja were clicked together at the airport as they were leaving for the US, as part of the ongoing pre-production work for their next film with hit filmmaker SS Rajamouli.
If reports are to be believed Samantha Akkineni might be the female lead in SS Rajamouli’s next film. This film will star Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
Chiranjeevi is currently working on the mega-budget multi-starrer Sye Narasimha Reddy, which is produced by Ram Charan. The film has a strong supporting cast including Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, who is making his Telugu debut.
Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty starrer Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has emerged as the biggest Indian film ever. Directed by SS Rajamouli, it is also the highest grosser of Bollywood till date.
While the Baahubali director’s next for producer Danayya is said to be a social drama, it looks like Rajamouli might rope in Ram Charan and Jr NTR for the film.
Baahubali fans can now visit Mahishmati as the sets are being preserved at Hyderabad’s Ramoji Film City. Spread across 100 acres, the sets designed by Sabu Cyril for Rajamouli’s films mesmerised the audience on the silver screen and now the fans can experience them live.
The first look of ‘Saaho’ starring Prabhas was launched earlier today. The poster has an intense looking Prabhas walking down a road with a mask covering his face. His team from ‘Baahubali’ has been extremely supportive in praising Prabhas’ next venture and they even tweeted about it.
S Rajamouli, who became a household name after the successful Baahubali franchise, has recently revealed his forthcoming projects. While his next film will be a social drama, the ace director will also be helming a film starring Tollywood superstar Mahesh Babu.
Shahid Kapoor, who is known for going the extra mile to fit into the shoes of a character, has shared a still from Padmavati on his Instagram account. In the still, Shahid’s bare body exposes his chiseled abs and we are stunned at how seamless the actor looks.
In a hero-worshipping film industry like us, only very few directors wield the power to overshadow the charms of their films’ leading men among the audience. And Rajamouli is definitely one of them. Audience throng theaters because it is an SS Rajamouli film and not primarily because of its star cast.
