In fact, SS Rajamouli has made many films in his career. But in the last few years, some of his films have created disaster at the box office. Baahubali, Baahubali 2 or RRR, all of them have taken the box office by storm. Now another director of southern cinema has shared an interesting anecdote about Rajamouli. That director is none other than Prashant Verma, who has been in the headlines for some time now for his released film ‘Hanuman’.
‘Hanuman’ was released in theaters on January 12. It is a small budget film. It is being told that it has cost around 20 crore rupees in making it. According to trade analyst Manobala Vijayabalan, this film has earned more than Rs 230 crore worldwide. Prashant Varma, who is in discussion about this film, said that at one time he wanted to work with Rajamouli.
Why did Prashant Varma start hating?
In an interview to Indian Express, he said that when he wanted to work with Rajamouli, he used to message him through email and social media asking him to give him a chance to work. He wanted to work with Rajamouli as an assistant director. Responding, Rajamouli told Prashant that his team is already full.
