SS Rajamouli's Vikramarkudu is one of the biggest hit movies in Telugu and it has been remade in Tamil as Siruthai, Kannada as Veera Madakari and Bengali as Bikram Singha. Now, it is also coming in Hindi as Rowdy Rathore. Its hit song 'Jinthatha' has also been copied in all these versions. Its dance moves have become very popular in the country.
Talking about the mannerism of the songs, Rajamouli says that it does not belong to either him or Kannan. On his Twitter page, the director wrote, “Vikramarkudu rights were officially acquired by the Hindi producer long back. Jinthatha mannerism was neither invented by me nor Kannan It is Practiced by students of certain colleges in TN. Kannan told me about it and I thought it wud make a nice mannerism for raviteja (sic).”
SS Rajamouli further said, “So Prabhu Master needn't give credit to anyone. but being a gentlemen he called me to invite to the party and said I was the reason for rowdy rathore. And I said it is HIS talent and trackrecord that made RR possible. He is such a gem of person, that any -ve comment on him makes me sad (sic).”
However, all movies of Rajamouli are super-hit at the Box Office. Besides the success, all of them have been remade in other languages of India. The director is currently busy with his next movie Eega, which is a socio-fantasy film and being made in Telugu and Tamil.
