It is known that Rajamouli's Baahubali has shattered all the records in Telugu industry and has set some new records of its own league across the World. But still the fan wars for more records continue.
Rajamouli has finally opened up to talk about the sorry state of
fans pressure and producers false prestige in Tollywood. When it
comes to Baahubali, the director and producer are said to
be strictly against supporting fake records.
"Record number of 50 days, 100 days,175 days are things of past.
Today, Films are being released in 1000′s of screens and run is
over by 3-4 weeks. Few main screens might still give shares, but
mostly the run is over. ", Rajamouli tweeted.
"It is very sad when some fans ask for an extension, sometimes
paying out of their pockets and sometimes asking the exhibitors to
do so. Friends..! what do we gain out of these false records??", He
"Audience have given us a memorable victory, that we will
remember for the rest of our lives. What more do we need? Our
industry is plagued by this issue for a long time. Let's not be a
part of it.", said Rajamouli
"It is high time we stopped this. Bahubali will run in theatres
that are yielding shares. If not, it will make way for other new
films to follow. We will NOT block theatres for false records.",
the director opined.
Ram Gopal Varma too joined to support Rajamouli's honest stand. "@ssrajamouli You are bang on right..One should look at the final collections ..Thinking of number of weeks and days is prehistoric thinking", RGV tweeted.
