After the release of Baahubali, director SS Rajamouli's résumé acquired some mind-boggling attributes like handling more than 2500 artists at a time, directing India's costliest film and the man responsible for the highest grossing South Indian movie ever.
For a director with such superior qualities, it is only fair if
one expects him to lose his cool on the sets of his film. But
according to a report, Rajamouli was seen pleading to his artists
on the sets of Baahubali.
The report has it that, since many people were involved in
Baahubali, most of them would form their own groups and
revel in the company of one another by making jokes and inducing
laughter when it was not their turn to face the camera.
Since Baahubali is a serious film, Rajamouli had
feared that his artists might not be able to bring out the
seriousness in them when they are asked to face the camera, if they
are having fun during their free time.
Hence it was reported that the Naan Ee director was
literally seen pleading his artists not to crack jokes and indulge
in a laugh-fest as it might spoil their shot.
