Accentuating its cinematic brilliance, the box office collection of the movie which is furiously approaching the 250 crore mark has served the metaphorical purpose, 'icing on the cake'.
This being the situation, director Shankar's appreciation directed toward the entire team of Baahubali was hard to miss as the Enthiran director himself is known to have masterminded some of India's most visually stunning films.
Shankar had written on his Twitter page, "Bahubali-Epic Thoughts!Poetic Imagnatn!Strong Characterisatns!Super Heroism!Executd wit Stuning Visuals! Vowww! Cheers 2 Rajmouli n his team."
If you think Shankar's admiration for the film is a humble gesture by the maverick director then, SS Rajamouli's reply will completely floor you.
This is how the Naan Ee director reacted to Shankar's comment, he wrote, "@shankarshanmugh thanks a ton for the appreciation, sir. The team is overjoyed. Your message is not just a compliment, but a certificate.."
Rajamouli's reply not only suggests that he has immense respect toward Shankar but also highlights Shankar's achievements which in turn might have served as an inspiration for a celebrated director like SS Rajamouli.
