Even as the Tamil version of Baahubali trailer was receiving mountainous applause from a star studded crowd after being released by Suriya, SS Rajamouli, the brain behind Baahubali, came up with the most anticipated announcement.
Clearing the air about his straight Tamil film in the process, the Naan Ee director said his obvious and first choice of hero while directing a Tamil movie would be none other than Superstar Rajinikanth.
"While directing a Tamil film, the first choice for any director from the country would be Rajinikanth", said the man of the hour.
Having said that, he couldn't ignore a couple of other top rated Tamil heroes and went on to confirm that he will soon make a film with one of these three actors.
He said, "I have met Ajith a few times and needless to say he is a great human, but the hero whom I have best rapport with is Suriya and soon I will be working with either one of these three gentlemen".
Baahubali, one of India's most expected movie in recent times will scorch its way into theatres on July 10th. The film stars Prabhas, Rana, Anushka, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj, Nassar and Ramya Krishnan in prominent roles.
