Plenty of accolades are pouring in for Rajamouli’s Makkhi, the Hindi version of his recent blockbuster Eega. After the press screening, where all the top critics praised the film, the biggest compliment for the film came from Shah Rukh Khan! Soon after watching the film, SRK tweeted,”Makkhi (eega) the fly. Awesomely original & fun film by Rajamouli releasing on 12th oct. must watch with kids.all the best raja&team.” This single tweet was later retweeted by more than 400 people on Twitter. Elated with SRK’s compliment on his film, S S Rajamouli thanked him on Twitter saying, “thank you @iamsrk the king khan. Offering your help for a complete stranger like me and tweeting about #makkhi shows ur greatness. honoured! felt very happy when shahrukh told me his son wanted to see #makkhi badly and they are going watch it together.” Now that Rajamouli has already evinced his interest in making a Hindi film in near future, Makkhi might just be the beginning of an exciting innings in Bollywood for Rajamouli.
The film stars Nani, Samantha and Sudeep in lead roles. M M Keeravani had composed the music and K K Senthil Kumar is the cinematographer. Sai Korrapati and Suresh Babu had produced the film. Reliance Entertainments is distributing the Hindi version. Makkhi will zoom into the screens all over the country on October 12.
