S.S. Rajamouli, described by critics and the media as the latest ‘showman’ of India along with Bollywood’ Subhash Ghai and Kollywood’s Shankar, has said that if he made a film starring superstar Rajinikanth in the lead, the dialogues of the film can’t be heard in theatres clearly at least for the first ten days due to clapping, whistles and celebrations by Rajini’s fans.
The colossal success at the box-office of this year’s Baahubali has put Rajamouli right on top in the Southern film industry. He is now making sequel to Baahubali but allotted some time to chat with students of IIT, Madras in Chennai recently.
One of those questions posed to Rajamouli by the students was when would he work with Rajini and what kind of a film it would be.
“Not only me, all directors in India will only give the same reply,” said Rajamouli. When queried about the kind of character he had in mind for Rajini, Rajamouli refused to divulge any details about it but made one thing very clear.
“If and when I make a film with Rajini in the lead, it would surely have this aspect: for the first ten days of the film’s release in theatres, nobody can hear any dialogues as the fan’s applause, clapping and whistling would prevent us from doing so!” said Rajamouli, much to the delight of the students.
