Filmmaker SS Rajamouli, who became a national phenomenon with the Baahubali series, has often expressed that it is his dream to make Mahabharata. However, it seems like his fans have a different request to make. On Twitter, the director’s fans asked him to make a movie on Ramayan. The fans made #RajamouliMakeRamayan trend on the micro-blogging site on Sunday, stating that only he can do justice to the concept and make India proud again.
Interestingly, the demand has come after the re-run of Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan and Uttar Ramayan ended on DD National.
