Tollywood’s showman S.S. Rajamouli got yet another feather in his cap when his monster hit film Baahubali 2 was chosen to be screened at the Karachi International Film Festival in Pakistan.
Rajamouli delivered back-to-back colossal hit films in the form of Baahubali (2015) and Baahubali 2 (2017). He is now busily involved in making a Telugu film which stars Ram Charan Teja and Jr. NTR in the lead as twin heroes. Though the names of heroine(s) to star in the film haven’t yet been relieved, it is learnt that the film’s script has boxing as its main theme.
Baahubali 2 is the only Indian film to have been chosen to be screened at the Karachi International Film Festival. Penning his thoughts on his Twitter account, Rajamouli has said “Baahubali has given me opportunities to travel to many countries; the most exciting of them is now, Pakistan. thank you Pakistan International Film Festival, Karachi, for the invite!”
Rajamouli thus becomes the first-ever South Indian film-maker to be visiting the ‘friendly, neighbourhood’ Pakistan!
