SS Rajamouli, whose magnum opus Bahubali has bagged the national best film award, is conspicuously silent and has not reacted on it till night. Although the news of his film getting a national award right from the morning and officially announced at 11:30 am, he has not reacted on it. Scores of people have heaped praise on the visionary director but he was silent. Why?
Rajamouli who very often shares his thoughts on social issues, sometimes reserves his comments for a day or two. “That’s his nature. On some occasions, he would not respond immediately. He sees everything to unfold. He watches what the media and persons who matter react then he would open up” says a sources close to him.
But there was remark doing rounds in Tollywood that Jakkanna –as he is fondly called- is peeved at the jury for ignoring him for the best director award and selected Sanjay Leela Bhanasali for Bhajirao Mastani.
Dismissing that comment, the source said he is not the one to think on that lines. “His earlier movie- Eega won national acclaim for its excellent graphic work and narration. He has already achieved global recognition as his movie was released in several countries. A comaparison was also made with Hollywood movies which have high graphic value” the sources explained.
