Today is the birthday of ace director S.S.Rajamouli. Jakkanna, as he is fondly addressed by his friends, was born on 10th October 1973 in Raichur, Karnataka, to Mr. & Mrs. Vijayendra Prasad.
At a young age, he started out as an associate of K.Raghavendra Rao garu and went on to direct TV serials under his production company. He made his debut with NTR’s ‘Student No. 1’ and followed it up with ‘Simhadri’. There has been no stopping him after that.
Rajamouli scored super hits with Nithiin, Prabhas and Ravi Teja. 2009 turned out to be a life changer for him. ‘Magadheera’, with Ram Charan in the lead, hit the screens and went on to rewrite the Box Office history of Telugu Cinema.
In fact, his cousin and music director M.M.Keeravani says that Rajamouli’s career can be categorized into ‘Before Magadheera’ and ‘After Magadheera’. Since that time, Rajamouli has started experimenting with scripts, subjects and film making techniques. He made Telugu cinema proud once again in 2012 with the magnum opus ‘Eega’. The movie conquered the Box Office not only in Andhra Pradesh, but in Tamil Nadu as well. Rajamouli is now busy with the shooting of ‘Baahubali’, which is going to be the most expensive Telugu movie ever produced.
