SS Rajamouli is deemed as the Pride Of Tollywood and the biggest revenue generator of the industry. Not only is he basking in the success of Baahubali 2, but is as well enjoying some never seen or heard before accolades from various cine industries across the nation.
The ace director, who is on a travel for the movie promotions,
was seen giving an interview in London to BBC, one of the biggest

accolades from that kind of a star was so overwhelming. To make a
film with him would be a dream come true for any director and I am

Premam fame, director Alphonse Puthren, took to his Facebook
account and requested SS Rajamouli to make a movie with Thalaivaa
