Excited, even though it is Very popular event. But am told Puchon International film festival in korea is popular and eega has been invited for screening…:) 1st nomination is for best film.
After his graphical extravaganza ‘Eega’, director S S Rajamouli is now getting into another magnum opus and this time it is a complete period flick comprising of kings and warriors. This is ‘Bahubali’ and given the fact that our forefathers were quite tall and muscular, Rajamouli is ensuring that the cast is filled with giants.
By Giants we mean there is not many who are below 6 feet in height and is not part of the film. Already we have Prabhas, Daggubati Rana in the lead and now it is heard that they would be joined by the Kollywood veteran Sathyaraj who in himself is a fitness icon and has a giant personality. The list is bound to increase with few more giants.
As of now, the leading lady is also a tall one and she is none other than Anushka. There is also news that work is going on to get few more giants like Mukesh Rishi, Subbaraju, Supreeth, Aditya Menon and others. This film is sure to give a complex to the average height Indians. Let us wait for the final list though.
Young hero Nithin, who had a record of highest number of successive flops till ISHQ in 2012, is on hit track with back to back hits which has impressed his old mentor.
Nithin had bagged the biggest hit in his career with ‘Sye’ under the direction of SS Rajamouli, has once again impressed his Sye director with his latest hit Gundejaari Gallanthayyinde.
Rajamouli after watching Nithin’s GJG was very much impressed with his hero tweeted, About 20 of us went to gundejaari…and all of us enjoyed it. Spl appreciation to nitin for realising his strengths. Not many of us do that. Nitya menon- it is pleasure watching her perform on screen. Great acting. Director vijaykumar did a fab job. congratulations2him&all d team.
Rajamouli casting call is facing severe criticism from upcoming actors who are desperate to get one chance to prove their talent to the world.
They say, Tollywood Ace Rajamouli has insulted the upcoming actors offering a sidekick roles and single frame role without any dialogues for his next period film Prabhas-Rana starer Bhahubali.
Out of fifteen thousand applications for Rajamouli’s casting call and selected only 50 people testing their in & out’s of acting talents , but disappointed them with negligible role in the movie. Some of the disappointed actors even said they cant do such silly roles. They said, Rajamouli using them for richness of his film with new faces on screen.
SS Rajamouli’s Eega brought Tollywood some recognition. The film won two awards — Best Special Effects, and Best Regional Film, Telugu.
Seriously, this director seems to be not at all satisfied with 2 awards but expected 2 more awards for a Housefly revenge drama.
Rajamouli said, Without Sudeep, the film may not have done so well. He worked really hard. Throughout the shooting, he had to react to nothing in front of him. the Eega team expected Sudeep to win an award at the national level. He deserved it.Apart from Sudeep, cameraman Senthil too comes in for praise.
Rajamouli is a happy for his graphical extravaganza ’Eega’ film’s super success at 60th Natioanl awards by bagging two awards in Best Telugu Film and Best Special Effects category.
Rajamouli said, Thanks a ton guys, for all the congratulatory messages. Will convey the wishes to the whole team….Best Vfx is almost expected:)
Personal congrats2Makuta.in particular to their young animation team for believing & working hard2archive that…..Congratulations & thanks2 my producer Sai garu4 believing in content & emotion of eega and suresh babu garu4 his ability to envision my dream….But I would have been really happy had Sudeep received the recognition for his extraordinary efforts. Eega is not the same without him.

Rana Daggubati is the most eligible bachelor that Tollywood has right now and with his buddy’s Ram Charan & Allu Arjun enjoying their married life, wedding bells are ringing in his mind too. This is totally personal point of view but let’s talk about the professional side of Rana for now folks.
Bcoz of his 6 plus height, the makers, director always faced problems to get a suitable heroine for his films. But our task master has found the right match & perfect better half for Rana in his period film “Bahubali”.
The lucky girl to share screen space with Rana is Andala Rakshasi fame Lavanya Tripathi. Rajamouli had an eye for her acting skills when he launched her as heroine and producing Andala Rakshasi movie. Recently Lavanya has attended screen test for Bahuballi , which went smoothly and an official announcement will be coming out very soon.
Rana is the playing the bad boy role in the flick, Rana’s name in the movie will be Bharatha and he is the elder brother of Bahubali. Richest, Powerful, wise and caring King Bhahubali (Prabhas) will be ruling his kingdom but he has his sibling Bharatha (Rana) who is jealous of his brother’s nobleness. He is out to have his share and wages war against Bahubali, though he is having his kingdom to rule. Bahubali who is not keen to indulge in bloodshed and even defeat or kill Bharatha, wants to make his brother happy and wants only loses the war and turns Siddha relinquishing all his wealth and worldly treasures and pleasures. In the same manner Bharatha realizes that the greediness towards wealth is a real damaging of the life and he also joins some ashsrama and starts living a Saadhu’s life,
A big director like Rajamouli is also having troubles when it comes to framing a story. If you do not believe this, then read this story.
Ace director Rajamouli has prepared half a dozen stories before he actually zeroed on a perfect script for his forthcoming flick. They say that Rajamouli is busy penning stories from long time regarding Prabhas' movie. Before he actually zeroed 'Baahubali' script, the master craftsman has made around five stories. Though those stories impressed Prabhas and other teammates, Rajamouli himself is not happy with them, but is finally satisfied by 'Baahubali' scripts. All this is revealed by none other than Prabhas recently.
These are the days where star-directors are just looking for hero dates and good budgets, except story. We have to appreciate Rajamouli for his love for new content that will excite audiences. Maybe other should take a leaf from his book.
After scoring tremendous success with ‘Eega’ the famous director S S Rajamouli has started the pre production work for his new film titled as ‘Baahubali’. This has Prabhas along with Daggubati Rana in the lead and there is a lot of hype getting generated even before the Muhurtham has taken place.
In between Rajamouli has come forward and gave a clarification. It is known that recently he had given a casting call and sources say he received nearly 12000 mails. Not getting panicked, Rajamouli reportedly mentioned that each mail would be looked into and maintained that if he is not satisfied with the profiles he will go for another round of casting call.
Another thing he made clear is that this is not a competition and he will choose people only if he is satisfied that they are suitable for the role. Those who get chosen would be completely out of Rajamouli’s discretion. There is also news that both Prabhas and Rana are now getting trained in sword fights.
Ace Director is risking his career with his 10th film by demanding his producers a budget of 100 crores for his next trilingual film with Young rebel Prabhas ‘Bahubali’. Pre shooting work has already started by erecting huge sets, Hiring Camels,Horses & Elephants, Training process is already started.
Risk factors include
1. Prabhas star power never reached 30 crore mark .
2. Rajamuoli reputation in Hindi is imaginary , his Makhi (Eega’s Hindi Version) could not break even dubbing expenses.
3. Prabhas Hindi market is zero.
4. Rajamouli- Prabhas Chandramouli( Chatrapathi’s Tamil version) was a dud in Tamil , as Prabhas has no market in Tamil.
5. Two years precious time for both Prabhas and Rajamouli
With all these factors, Allotting 100 crore budget means the movie has to gross at-least 170+ crores But Rajamouli has done wonders with Eega at boxoffice , Hope his luck & hard-work payoff for his next project too.
Rajamouli believes in making larger than life subjects and to bring them into reality, huge budget is inevitable. Tollywood most successful director's next outing Bahubali starring Prabhas, Rana and Anushka is the most expensive film ever made on Telugu screen.
After completing the pre-production work, Rajamouli has envisioned how much this period drama would cost and the answer is Rs 100 crore. He discussed the production cost with producers K Raghavendra Rao and RK Media (Shobu), and they immediately approved having confidence on the director's capability.
A Rs 100 crore budget for a Telugu film is surely a big gamble. None of Prabhas's films collected a share of over Rs 30 crore and no Telugu flick has so far collected Rs 100 crore share. Then, why did Rajamouli took such a huge risk? The director has his own calculations. While his magnum opus Magadheera grossed around Rs 100 crore despite not having a theatrical release for Hindi version, Eega collected over Rs 60 crore though not having a big star in the lead role. Rajamouli is confident of recovering Rs 100 crore as Bahubali is a tri-lingual (Telugu, Tamil and Hindi).
Ace director Rajamouli has this habit of keeping a low profile till his movie is made. After completion of project, he will keep raving about the project like anything. But times have changed now.
Unlike his old style, Rajamouli is now making every head turned to his upcoming 'Baahubali' even before the pre-production of the film is done. Because he wants to beat Bollywood Khans this time, it seems. Apparently, this Prabhas-Anushka-Rana starrer is being made with 70 crores budget and Rajamouli is aiming at collecting more than 100 crores. If that happens, then this director will join the list of Heroes who are ruling the 100 crore club in India. But what is to be looked here is the stamina of star-power along with Rajamouli's image.
Tollywood Box Office itself alone might not help 'Baahubali' to cross 100 crores with Prabhas and Rana in main roles. It requires other languages too for the recovery of such mammoth budget. Let us see how Rajamouli will plan regarding this.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli hunt for new actors got a huge response from all age group from 20 yrs to 60 yrs.
More than 5000 application have reached till now and sorting and finalising them turned to be a big headache for casting supervisors.
With Rajamouli call for new actors and actresses for Prabhas’s big budget movie which will be launched very soon . Rajamouli once again request to sent their photos and videos are not compulsory to email@example.com and sending them to Rajamouli’s twitter account or Facebook account will be rejected.
Ace director who returned from Thailand after spending some happy time with his close aide mourned for Nirbhaya who was dead yesterday after brutal rape in Delhi.
Rajamouli was very much touched with the news, expressed his concerned towards Indian woman. He said… Deeply saddened by the news of Nirbhaya passing away. Ofcourse the guilty should be punished with max penalty and they will be.But we all know that alone is not the solution. We all should own up the responsibility. Forget the whole womanhood, are we treating our mothers, wives and Daughters with respect?Are we valuing their OPINION?are we at least asking4their opinion.
Boys as kids in our homes learn from us.if we don’t Treat women as EQUALS,they start feeling superior from that age itself.the girls start feeling inferior from very young age,ONLY because the Way we treat them. just returned from Thailand and for me the obvious difference between the 2 countries is that I found working women in Which ever place I went. Hotels, shops, tellers, cashiers not just in Bangkok but in every small town, the women folk are earning members.
He said, I read somewhere that if basic wages are fixed for an Indian house wife for all the hours she puts into cooking, washing, cleaning, bringing up kids she will be earning MORE than than the average Indian male. all I us should realise and start respecting her TODAY.that will be the Least what we can do to Nirbhaya. RIP young lady, the nation grieves you.

While every other nominated persons like Rajamouli, Sridevi, Vidya Balan and Amir Khan made Indians proud in India, Irfan's films have made Indians proud at international level and that's the better reason to adjudge him as the best.

Whatever, Eega has occupied a special space in everyone mind as it impressed with his little wings to take revenge in the film.
Ace director SS Rajamouli is one of the most successful directors in South India. He impressed North with his movie Eega dubbed as Makkhi and got appreciation from audience around the country.
Many Bollywood actors have expressed their willingness to work with this critically acclaimed director. The latest B-Town star, who wants to work with him is Akshay Kumar.

Addressing a publicity event of Khiladi 786, Akshay Kumar said that he had worked with South Indian directors in half of his films. And said “I would like to work with Rajamouli.” We have to wait for Rajamouli reaction.

The big budget film will be made about more than 60 crores and is a trilingual will be released in (Telugu, Tamil and Hindi) is to be produced by Arka Media banner.
Here is some interesting facts about the film is touted to be a high voltage entertainer like other films of Rajamouli. The story is based on an adventure theme, yet uncharted in Telugu films. A large contingent of horses has been ordered for Rajamouli-Prabhas film, say sources.
Manchu Lakshmi who always been in news for her controversial statement is back this time with her professional love for Rajamouli.
Lakshmi, who turned to be good actor and producer has some big dreams carrying in her mind. She says, She had dreamt doing a action sequence and Rajamouli was impressed with her and she had got chance to step into his car to attend a marriage and people felt jealous about them.
But, Why so suddenly Lakhsmi started dreaming about Rajamouli ?, It has a good reason behind. Rajamouli started his casting for his next venture with Prabhas and off course she is trying her level best to be part of the film by bagging some role in it is the latest talk in Filmnagar.
CNN-IBN Indian of the year 2012 in the Entertainment category has nominated only Rajamouli from south Indian cinema.

Other nominee’s in this category include Aamir Khan & Team Satyamev Jayate, Irrfan Khan,Ranbir Kapoor, Sridevi and Vidya Balan.
Remember, SS Rajamouli’s graphic extravaganza Eega has made it to the elite club. Eega is the only Telugu film that has made it the list of 18 other films selected by the Film Federation of India for the Oscars for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category.
In Andhra Pradesh there cannot be anyone who will not recognize the noted director S S Rajamouli and with his recent film ‘Eega’ being released in various languages, Rajamouli has become a national name. But recently the director had an interesting experience which is worth reading.
It is heard that Rajamouli was on his way to Bellary for a college fest when he stopped by at a Dhaba in Dhone to have food. The Dhaba owner who served the food came and said “Hey, you look like the film director S S Rajamouli. Do you know him? You are just like him.” and went about serving the food.
Rajamouli reportedly played along with him without negating it. But it is heard that by the time he had his food and was about to leave the Dhaba owner recognized that it was the great director himself who had food at his joint. This will be a memorable evening for the Dhaba owner the
There was buzz, that Director Rajamouli booked 100 horses for his next film with Young Rebel Star Prabhas and Tips for Chandrababu matter. Some even reported the director even consulted his Magadheera Star Ram Charan who has knowledge in horses. However, Rajamouli who is unhappy with these reports condemned them as rumours. He tweeted: “me directing chandrababu naidu garu(WHAT DOES IT MEAN???) and giving “TIPS” is absurd and untrue. 10 dozen horses for prabhas film etc are false news.We just started pre visualising and production is still a little time away.”
Rajamouli recently announced to make this film as Telugu, Hindi bilingual where Prabhas will be playing lead role in both the versions. Estimated budget is around Rs.100 crores and they are spending around 10 crores for a set which is currently being constructed in Hyderabad outskirts in 25 acres of area. This prestigious project of Jakkanna will go on floors from December.
Hotshot director S S Rajamouli who has been ruling the Telugu film industry with his nonstop hits at the box office is slowly stepping out of Andhra Pradesh and exploring bigger avenues. In this attempt, he took his ‘Eega’ to Mumbai naming it as ‘Makkhi’ and seems to be getting a good response. But here is something unusual. Recently it is heard that Rajamouli has gone to Delhi and this is actually the first time that he went inside the city. Sources say Rajamouli is totally in awe with the planning of the city and he is already working out a way to come for a holiday with his family. There is nothing wrong in someone not visiting the capital city but at a time when Rajamouli is becoming a national icon, it becomes necessary for him to get familiar with the big cities of India. Maybe he should take off with a post release promotion tour across India for his ‘Makkhi’.
Tollywood No:1 director who is now the center of attraction of national media his recent flick ‘Eega’, SS Rajamouli is celebrating his 39th birthday today. Rajamouli started his career directing a serial for ETV (Shanthi Nivasam) under the guidance of ace director K Ragavendra Rao and made his debut as a director in films with Jr NTR starer ‘Student No 1'. It took almost 2 years for Rajamouli to make his second movie ‘Simhadri’ again with NTR and the film went to to create new records in Telugu film industry. His films ‘Sye’ and ‘Chatrapati’ are still the best movies in the careers of actors Nitin and Prabhas and ‘Yamadonga’ made NTR to win his first film fare award. But it was Ram Charan starer ‘Magadheera’ which made Bollywood film makers to look at him. ‘Magadheera’ created wonders not only in Telugu but also in entire South India.The director tried to change his genre by making ‘Maryada Ramanna’ with Sunil which was a decent hit at the box-office and then arrived the ‘Eega’, which was a which was term as one of the best movies in Telugu in terms of visuals and graphics. ‘Eega’ has been released in entire South India and won accolades everywhere. Currently, ‘Eega’ is being dubbed into Hindi as ‘Makkhi’ and the movie is scheduled to be released on October 12.
idlerlax.com wishes Rajamouli on his B’day !!!
According to latest reports from Kollywood, Super star Rajinikanth, Ramcharan multi starrer movie is going to have an ace director instead of ‘Rangam’ fame K.V Anand.
Producer Hansraj Saxena, ex-CEO of SunTV and Sun Pictures, has reportedly offered a Rs 240-crore deal to Rajinikanth for a Tamil film. After all calculations the producers have decided to go with Tollywood Top director Rajamouli who already got super craze in Kollywood too with his latest film Naan EE striking gold at Kollywood boxoffice.Sax Pictures producing a bilingual with Rajinikanth & Ram Charan in the lead.
It means , Rajamouli will direct Ramcharan once again, earlier his film with Cherry was an industry hit and now with super star and mega power star the movie definitely make history in whole south India. Prabhas who has been waiting for Rajamouli films keeping his marriage delayed still have to wait some more time.
Though on an earlier occasion, the director has deni-ed in his micro-blogging site about teaming up with Rajini, it is learnt that of late, both SS’s are regularly meeting in Chennai for possibly working together for a multilingual multi-crore project. It could even be for the much rumoured Hansraj Saxena’s proposal.
Ace director SS Rajamouli is currently in Mumbai promoting his ‘Makkhi’ (Eega in Telugu). A special screening was held just a while ago and most of the top critics attended the show to watch the movie. Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn who lent his voice over for title credits also watched the movie along with Rajamouli. The filmmaker will also participate in a question and answer session with media people today evening.
Rajamouli got warm welcome in B-Town and everybody appreciated our Telugu director for his exceptional thought. He is nothing less than a big hero in Bollywood now. Top critic Taran Adarsh felt honor in meeting Rajamouli. He tweeted: “Meeting Manmohan Desai when I started my career. Meeting@ssrajamouli today. Same feeling. Tremendous respect and happiness.” Taran further tweeted after watching the film: “Just watched #Makkhi. Salute to its creator @ssrajamouli . BRILLIANT.”
Ace Director Rajamouli, Prabhas movie is going to launch in December and the ground work has already started with Rajamouli in Mumbai in search of Bollywood heroine to rope for the movie opposite Prabhas.
Rajamouli is fed up with Tollywood heroines and planning to give fresh look with heroine so that if the movie become a block buster hit , it can be directly dubbed into Hindi without much effort and Bollywood heroine will be a plus.
Rajamouli is considering top heroines for his film include Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padugune, Sonakshi . He is looking for the best option among them who can match with Prabhas.
It has become more of a norm that films that get decent talks are being projected on a very high scale when it comes to their collection figures. We have seen that happening with big hero films and that is fine but can you imagine a film like ‘Eega’ coming up with some mind boggling figures?
Well, something like that is coming to promote Makkhi 3D. According to the producers, it is being projected that ‘Naan Ee’ the Tamil version of ‘Eega’ and Eega collectively have collected a whopping Rs 130 crores!!! Fact is, both versions have reached nowhere near that figure.
It is part of strategy to speculate high figures but there is a limit to believability too. Anyways, ‘Makkhi’ is hitting the screens on October 12th. How much will this help the Bollywood version, let us wait and see.
Ace director SS Rajamouli’s last release ‘Eega’ starring Nani, Samantha and Sudeep, has been made it to the Film Federation of India’s Oscar Nomination shortlist and this is the only film from Tollywood. Suriya’s 7aam Arivu (7th Sense), Amala Paul’s Aakashinte Niram (Nirantharam Nee Oohale) are also in the list.

Ace director Rajamouli has taken oath to donate his organs, This organ donation is an act of charity to provide a means of saving a life and make them live happily for more time .
Yesterday after interaction with medico’s at Gandhi Hospital , Rajamouli has taken this oath. Talking to press today He said “Our donated organs gives life to 8 individuals”.He requested every one to participate in this generous act of donation human organs . Those who have decided to donate their organs logon to http://www.mohanfoundation.org.
Earlier, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna, Amala,Manchu laxmi, Harshavardhan Rana, Navdeep and other already took oath to donate their organs.
Director Rajamouli also known to be ‘Hype master’ started his same old technique of giving hype to his next film hero Prabhas at Rebel audio function hurting other top heroes indirectly.
Rajamouli hyped Prabhas in his speech with his soft-spoken words, even Prabhas started clapping for himself unknowingly, though it looked very silly but Prabahs fans are very happy with Rajamouli’s speech. Actually, he was trying to prove that Prabhas is in top league in better position than Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu coding a nonsense article published by a paper which was launched for its selfish deeds;
The paper has published a fabricated survey on the name of “Youth ICON ” declaring that Prabhas as the Youth ICON and this article was the source of Rajamouli’s speech. He was very careful without taking names of Pawan & Mahesh. Rajamouli said, though the survey sample was very less just 1000 participants from Hyderabad , Prabhas following in Youth is for his good nature as Prabhas never speaks anything wrong about any movie, Hero.. etc that’s the reason he is in the hearts of Youth.
This attitude of Rajamouli is irritating other hero fans, they say …When there is no need of mentioning the survey which is considered to be a fabricated one, Rajamouli intentionally raised this topic and tried to bring difference among heroes with his loose talk hurting both the top heroes, he is like mercury in thermometer… always changes accordingly for his future needs.
According to reports, Rajamouli’s next film is going to be with Prabhas but right now the groundwork is happening in terms of script and other aspects.
It is heard that Rajamouli has gone ahead and has taken part in a special session. This is with the aspiring doctors of the Gandhi Medical College. They happen to be the medical students and it is heard that he would interact with them on various aspects and not just cinema.
According to information, this is more like an extempore and Rajamouli has got no agenda for this session. But this is definitely going to be an interesting encounter between him and the medico’s as the scope for exchange of information and knowledge is very high. The students are reportedly very excited with this session. But Rajamouli who is very professional never take up anything without some reason, participated in a long session with medico’s …is something fishy behind ? .
Actor Nani is on the rise and how! The talented actor has a slew of big ticket productions lined up for release in both Telugu and Tamil. Filmmakers are making a beeline to get the actor’s dates. What’s more, the actor could soon be playing the lead in the Telugu remake of last year’s Bollywood blockbuster Band Baja Baarat.
Gokul, a debutante director has approached Nani with the project. The actor says, “Gokul approached me with the script but negotiations are still on. I am very busy at the moment shooting for three films simultaneously.”
It’s official. Rajamouli’s path breaking special effects extravaganza Eega will be releasing in Hindi as Makhi on October 12, in time for the Dussera Holidays. The Nani-Samantha starrer created waves at the BO when it released in the South Indian languages a couple of months ago, but the Hindi version got delayed. The maverick director Rajamouli has finally confirmed the release date himself. It is going to be his official Bollywood debut.
Actor Sudeep shared his excitement saying, “The Hindi version of Eega is going to be releasing on October 12. Director SS Rajamouli himself confirmed the news, now that is great news. Looking forward to the film release.”
Ace Director Rajamouli is influenced by Anna Hazare, this honest man raised his voice against corruption. The director earlier hosted a TV show in a leading channel ABN’s ‘Youngistan’ program where he shared his thoughts with college students and said his Twitter followers to join the surajyam movement by making shortfilms, skits. Rajamouli stated this through his Twitter account.
Rajamouli Tweeted: we al know corruption is the largest issue plaguing india’s growth in all fronts.join the surajyam movement by making shortfilms,skits(cont). slogans etc against corruption and send them for competition. logon to http://www.surajyam.in for details.”
This new avatar has shocked cine industry as Rajamouli’s took two long years to complete his last release ‘Eega’, starring Nani, Samantha and Sudeep which is a blockbuster and the director is soon going to start a new film with Young Rebel Star Prabhas . And now, Doubts raise on his new projects how many years he would take again to complete it as he is showing interest in social activities.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli who is out of Twitter for about two weeks, as he went out Goa for a vacation along with his family, is finally back on social networking site. Few days ago, the ace director watched the trailer of Comedy Hero Allari Naresh’s ‘Sudigadu’ and appreciated it. He said that, he has shown the trailer to his family members. Now, this time Rajamouli praised the film’s director Bheemaneni and his team.
Rajamouli Tweeted: “congratulations bheemaneni garu and team! sudigadu is expected 2collect more than double the naresh’s top grossers keep going SUDDEN STAR:)” The film is doing well not only in A P but also at Overseas. The film is made on spoofs of Super hit Telugu films but it got appreciations from many Industry biggies.
Meanwhile, Rajamouli is currently busy with the script work of his next venture with Prabhas. The film which will start rolling later this year is going to be made on lavish scale with grandeur ever seen in Tollywood history
Ace director SS Rajamouli known for making strong blockbusters will soon begin his new project with Young Rebel Star Prabhas. As per a reliable source, Rajamouli is planning to make this film to satisfy the Telangana Region people. As Telangana movement is in one of its matured stages, Rajamouli is planning to cash on this issue in order not to face any ban on his film from peopel of this region. While working for Maryada Ramanna, some Telangana activists disturbed the shooting.
As Rajamouli is planning to make a film on Kings and Kingly Dynasties, he is thinking to choose one of the legendary Kings from Kakatiya Dynasty as subject for Prabhas flick. Pre-productional research works on this Telangana subject has already begun and film is expected to go on floors some time with in this year. MM Keeravani will compose the music and K.Raghavendra Rao will co-produce it. This movie is going to be made on around Rs.100 crores budget, which is highest for a Telugu Cinema till date. So, Telangana and a historical backdrop belonging to this region will be the subject Rajamouli is preparing for Prabhas.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s last release Eega which released on June 6th reached 50days milestone today. This film has the highest used CG shots in Tollywood history and the movie entertained all kinds of audiences. Rajamouli’s 2 years hard work to complete this graphical extravaganza and resulted in just 50 days run though it gave much relief to the makers without being a flop. With its poor content , only banking on graphics ,Rajamouli brand name and over publicity the movie could sustain till 50 days. Sai Korrapati, who is popularly known as Bellari Sai made his debut as producer with the film on Varahi Chalanachitram banner.
Nani and Samantha played lead pair and chemistry between them worked well. Kannada actor Sudeep essayed antagonist and his performance is one of the major assets. MM Keeravani provided good songs especially background score gave life to emotional sequences. Apart from Telugu version, Tamil and Malayalam versions also did well. Eega Hindi version titled Makki will release soon. We congratulate entire cast and crew of Eega on this occasion.
For anything, there should be a full stop and otherwise it seems not only like a grammatical mistake, but boring. Same thing happened with our ace director and here goes it.
From the last couple of months, it is not just 'Eega' but it is Rajamouli who is buzzing in the ears of everyone. Lastly he took the promotion of 'Andala Rakshasi' movie too on his shoulders by adding his name as a producer to it. Finally, he got exhausted with all these games and kept a full stop, or simply a 'Game Over' card to all this stuff. He has now cut off relations with this world for the next couple of weeks as he is going for a family holiday in Goa. If someone is really lucky, they can get his glimpse in Goa, else they will see him only later this month.
By coming up with a fresh mind and energy, maybe one can expect SS Rajamouli to announce a news about Prabhas' project. Watch this space for more updates.
A debate is going on in the film circles about who is the best director of the last decade, 2000-10. The two best contenders for the race are none other than Rajamouli and Puri Jagan. Let us see what people say!
Rajamouli is having an impeccable track record with no flops to his career in the eight films he made in that span. But, Puri directed 19 films in that span with many flops and hits. However people likes Puri Jagan as he makes movies on a quick note and enthrals everyone in the family.
Rajamouli's earlier films used to be one sided action entertainers that will be loved by youths who love pulsating flicks. When it comes to Puri, his stories are simple, characters are guy next door and dialogues are awesome, says an analyst. In the recently given Santosham Awards, Puri is adjudged the best director of the decade surpassing Rajamouli. However both the directors are Pride of Tollywood.
Ace director SS Rajamouli is known for delivering blockbusters. But, for the first time in his career Rajamouli is going to score a flop. Folks! Don’t get confused. Let me explain it. We know that, Rajamouli is co-producer of recent release movie ‘Andala Rakshasi’. With the entry of this ace director’s the movie got enough publicity. But the film failed to reach the expectations. The movie got great openings, but they expected to fall from today.
Slow narration in the first half, poor editing and anti climax are the major drawbacks for the film. The movie is much doubtful in ‘B’, ‘C’ centers. If the director Hanu Raghavapudi took care in the subject, especially in the first half, the result would be different. There is nothing in the first half and the main story comes only in the second half. Hanu’s direction is good and gets good marks for his superb dialogues. Radhan’s music is the major asset for the film. So, ace director failed as a producer.
Director Rajamouli made it clear about the rumours that he is doing a film with Rajanikanth and also with Surya by tweeting
“News about Rajnikanth garu asking me to prepare a story is completely false” (sic).
“Me and Suriya meet occasionally.both of us r intrested in workin 2gether.But there r numerous issues 2b finalised b4 a film can be announced” (sic)”, wrote Rajamouli.
Ace Director SS Rajamouli whois presently enjoying the success of Eega is going to direct Suriya after his next Movie with Young Rebel Star Prabhas .
DVV Danayya will be producing this untitled venture and the producer has signed SS Rajamouli and keen to have Suriya as the lead. Dhanayya is reportedly planning to make this movie in Tamil as well along with the Telugu version simultaneously.
If Suriya signs Danayya, movie will go on floors after Rajamouli completes his next with young Rebelstar Prabhas and Suriya will meanwhile complete his Singam 2 and Thuppariyum Anandhan.
Sai Korrapati, who is called as Ballari Sai, scored blockbuster with his debut production venture ‘Eega’, directed by SS Rajamouli. Before the release of his first project, Sai started his second film ‘Andala Rakshasi’ with new cast and crew and he even launched the audio of the film. The audio, which released long back ago, got superb response. The trailers have also got excellent response. Dil Raju hiked the expectations by buying the movie for entire AP.
Few days ago we reported that, Rajamouli has bought some shares of the film. This is revealed by the ace director himself through his Twitter account. As per the inner sources, Sai gave the shares for free for free publicity. If Rajamouli enters the scene the expectations will be hiked and it will help in openings. We must appreciated producer Sai Korrapati for his clever strategy. Industry needs such talented producers. No producer will give a chance to a debutant after working with a star director like Rajamouli, but he believes in the subject so gave the opportunity to Hanu Raghavapudi.
Newcomers Naveen Chandra, Rahul Ravindran and Lavanya Tripathi played lead roles in this triangular love story. Radhan scored the music. Andala Rakshasi is all set to hit the screens worldwide tomorrow.
Director Ram Gopal Varma predicted that Eegawould turn out to be the first Telugu film which would cross the magical Rs 100 mark. Well the movie though opening to record collections worldwide doesn’t look getting anywhere near the Rs 100 mark, as the theatre occupancies dipped since the third week onwards even though there are quite a few theatres that are running to packed houses in some centers.
But director Rajamouli has shown a well made film can do well irrespective of whether it has a superstar or an insect playing the lead. The film may not have gone on to become the highest grossing film in Tollywood but it has managed to end up as one of the highest grossing films of all time behind the likes of Gabbarsingh, Magadheera, Dookudu and Racha.
With a combined gross collection(share) of Rs 57 crores in Telugu and Tamil, the film has apparently surpassed Mahesh Babu starrer, Businessman’s collections of Rs 44 crores. Three cheers to that.
Ace director SS Rajamouli is on full swing with the super success of ‘Eega’. The director never faced a failure so far. Nobody expected that, Eega will score such a big hit as the film doesn’t have big star cast and hero dies in first half an hour. To every bodies surprise Eega performed well.Rajamouli started working on his new project.
We can say, he started working on blockbuster as the director takes utmost care on his scripts. As per the very reliable sources, Rajamouli started the pre-production (scripting) work for next film with Young Rebel Star Prabhas. Shruti Haasan is going to play lead heroine in the film, which will be made on a lavish scale of around Rs. 100 crores. This film is said to be a socio fantasy and it is going to be produced by Raghavendra Rao.
Director Rajamouli is very much disappointed with Eega at box-office; His two years hard work did not give him fruitful result as expected with Eega.
Rajamouli’s Magadheera which was released in 2009 created a sensation to become a industry hit and later many films from star heroes were hits but could not cross its record, then came Pawan Kalyan’s Gabbarsingh which was made a young director with 3 films experience none other than Harish Shankar, the movie shake box-office with its collection Tsunami and is officially declared as No: 1 of Tollywood. Rajamouli’s Eega which was supposed to release in summer was postponed and extra bits like Chiranjeevi, NTR dance ,Mahesh babu’s mannerism were added to hit to make it a industry it . But still it could not reach the expected goal.
Eega opened very big with all prerelease hypes and later with Rajamouli’s publicity almost for 2 weeks had given Eega a good position at box-office. Later he came to know the real stamina of Eega and stopped the publicity on daily basis and Eega collections graph fall further low. With this experience Rajamouli has decided to make an Industry hit movie with Prabhas at any cost for this he has fixed a time bound schedule instead of taking 2 more years for it. He wants to follow the young directors’ trend to make good money as every movie success deals with money after all.

Ace director S.S.Rajamouli is without a doubt the most successful director in the Telugu Film Industry. He is in great demand and his opinion is held in high esteem. But this master story teller says that two other directors in the industry scare him! And they are Sukumar and Trivikram Srinivas.
In a recent interview given to a leading Tv Channel, Rajamouli was asked “Who are your closest competitors in the industry?” . To this Rajamouli responded “Sukumar and Trivikram Srinivas are two directors who have tremendous knowledge and depth. If they decide to make full fledged mass films seriously, thats going to be scary for the rest of us”.
Rajamouli is by nature a very humble person and these comments reflect that. But they also highlight a point often heard in the industry – Trivikram and Sukumar are capable of giving us a lot more than they are doing now.
The much hyped graphical extravaganza fro ace director Rajamoulu Eega has lost its strength at US box-office by its 4the weekend. The movie which created sensation collecting almost the same of star heroes films has just managed to collect 20 lakhs in its 4th weekend , Thus the Eega business is almost on a close now.
Eega which was doing well till 3 weekend suddenly dropped, according to the industry, the main reason for such huge drop is Rajamouli’s controversial statements on NRI’s, His warnings like those who watch Eega by downloading will be traced and information will be forwarded to INS and they might get deported back to India. These warning statements backfire him with such low collection as most of the NRI groups unanimously decided not to watch Eega anymore and teach a lesson to him.
According to industry, Eega has potential to run at least 5-6 weeks before next big release Julayi which is schedule to release on august 9 but Eega seems given by before a week .
Eega Total after 4th Weekend* USA $ 1,060,102 [Rs 5.87 cr]. Reported screens only.
Eega Total after 3rd Weekend* USA $ 1,012,955 [Rs 5.67 cr]. Reported screens only.
Allu Arjun's Julayi was planned to release on July 13. Despite announcing the date many days in advance, Julayi was forced to go to August as Eega released on July 6. With Eega taking a rocking start at the box office, Julayi makers pushed the release of this film to August 9. When Julayi is gearing up for release as per schedule, Rajamouli started to give new headaches to it.
Andala Rakshasi movie is releasing on August 10, just a day after Julayi. Normally a low budget film like Andala Rakshasi is not a threat to Julayi. But with Rajamouli buying share in Andala Rakshasi, it has turned heads and is sure to get decent opening because of Rajamouli's name attached to it. This will affect Julayi's collections in cities to some extent.
Julayi moved to August 9 just to avoid competition from other films. It targeted a clear week to make the most of it. Andala Rakshasi coming in between will not be liked by the Julayi team. We have to wait and see if Andala Rakshasi release will be postponed to some other day or will it lock horns with Julayi.
It seems something fishy going on between Rajamouliu and Allu Arvind, In Nargarjuna’s Shirdi Sai Audio function; Rajamouli was sitting in 5th row while other VIP’s including Allu arvind and other were in front rows. When rajamouli was called upon to dais, he not even tried to give a smile at arvind who was almost near him sitting beside; And Arvind left the dais before Audio launch sensing Rajamouli active presence on dais.
Inside talk, Arvind is really upset with Rajamouli public statement that He won’t direct Chiranjeevi 150th film, has called him up and asked him about his statement and sensing the damage caused Rajamouli later clarified stating it’s a media misunderstanding. Later, the cold war intensified with ‘Andala Rakshasi ‘movie is releasing on August 10, just a day after Julayi in which has Rajamouli a share. Actually, ‘Andala Rakshasi’ was planned for August 15th release along with Shekar’s Life is Beautiful but suddenly Puri’s ‘Devudu Chesena Manushulu’ which was scheduled to release this week was postponed to august15th which made the ‘Andala Rakshasi’ to get proponed.
Through ’Andala Rakshasi’ is not a threat to Allu Arjun’s ‘Julayi’. But with Rajamouli buying share in ‘Andala Rakshasi’, it has turned heads and is sure to get decent opening because of Rajamouli’s name attached to it. This will affect Julayi’s collections in cities to some extent. Thus, Rajamouli becoming a nightmare for Mega producer.
After 2 weeks on buzzing at Box-office, Rajamouli’s Eega lost its strength to fly high in its 3rd week at Box-office. According to trade the collection from all centers have come down drastically. The main reason for this underperformance is lack of star her in eega movie. Any movie at least in south India need a good star cast to make it a block buster. Whereas, Eega which does not have any star hero is finding difficult to grab the repeat audience attention. Without repeat audience the movie graph has fell down before excepted.
But Rajamouli to gain the attention of public and keep Eega mania buzzing, he raised a curtain on piracy targeting NRI’s where Eega was doing a good business. But that doesn’t seems to be worked , Eega already gathered enough collection than excepted and after this week Eega business is closing in many centers even though there is no big film to give a fight .One should appreciate Eega team for superb publicity and making Eega a success without star hero in it.
The much awaited release of Eega’s Hindi version might take place sooner than expected. Initially, S S Rajamouli and his team were planning to convert the film into 3D and release it at the end of the year. However, that doesn’t seem to be happening anymore. Recently, Rajamouli told a leading newspaper that the film’s Hindi version titled Makkhi is going to release in a month’s time. Right now, they are making minor changes to suit the Hindi nativity, although no characters have been changed. Buzz is that the distributors across North India felt that this was the right time to release the film in Hindi since there’s good buzz about the film. Moreover, availability of theatres will be an issue towards the end of the year when a slew of big budget films are going to release within a short span of time. Rajamouli also told the newspaper that the fly will dance to some popular songs from Salman Khan’s films in the end. Nani, Samantha and Sudeep had played lead roles in this film. M M Keeravani had composed the music.
S S Rajamouli’s Eega has turned out to be a huge hit in Tamil Nadu. The bilingual film was released as Naan Ee in Tamil on July 6. In the first week, the film was released in around 200 theatres and in the second week, there was a drop in theatres since Billa 2 had released. Now, the film has been re-released in several new screens and we hear that it’s being screened in around 185 theatres. The film has grossed Rs 18.22 crores in 21 days which is phenomenal for a film with no big stars. The film’s success has made S S Rajamouli a noted name in Tamil Nadu and to cash in on his popularity, his earlier film Chatrapathi has been dubbed as Chandramouli in Tamil. Meanwhile, Prasad V Potluri, who had produced the Tamil version of Eega is laughing all the way to the bank, thanks to the film’s success.
When our filmmakers want to remake a film from other Indian languages, they simply go and buy the rights from the original producer. But when they want to 'copy' something from films made in other countries, they don't bother about buying remake rights. They don't even give credits to the original makers. They just claim that the story and screenplay were written by them.
Recently our film industry's top director Rajamouli has been facing allegations of plagiarism. Most of Rajamouli's movies have scenes from Hollywood or other foreign language films. We can consider those as inspired stuff. But his Maryada Ramanna is a rip off of Hollywood film Our Hospitality. The credits to the original writers were not given and Rajamouli says that Our Hospitality was just an inspiration for Maryada Ramanna. Adapting a film to one nativity from other doesn't come under inspired category. A director of his caliber should have bought the remake rights or simply could have given credits to the original filmmakers.
When all other star directors are blatantly lifting content from foreign films one film stood tall and proud by buying the remake rights of the original. Charulatha film starring Priyamani is a remake of Thai movie Alone. The makers could have taken it for granted and lifted the content from that Thai film as the original makers would never get to see Charulatha and therefore there is no question of copyright act. However, the makers of Charulatha didn't do that and showed the way to many other copy cats. After all moviemaking is an art and everyone needs to respect others work.
The tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli has been riding high with the success of his recent release 'Eega' and currently he is pushing the movie aggressively so that it can touch a blockbuster tag and then attain one among the top three grossers in Tollywood history. But here is another side to his story.
It is heard that Rajamouli is feeling rather embarrassed about one thing. Reports say that cashing in on his success value and the impact he created, the Tamil Nadu distributors have taken his blockbuster hit 'Chatrapathi' and are releasing it now. As if that is not enough, here is the interesting bit.
The film has been named as 'Chandramouli' syncing with Rajamouli's name and the posters are having the face of Rajamouli in a bigger area than that of hero Prabhas. It is heard that the tough taskmaster is feeling rather embarrassed with the whole thing but there is nothing much he can do about it right now. The good thing for the film is the presence of the sizzling beauty Shriya who is quite popular in Kollywood.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli is one of the directors who know the pulse of the audience. He knows what audience wants and which film will do better at BO. His career graph says how much care he takes in making the films and he works hard for every single shot. Now, this ace director is donning new avatar. As per the latest reports, Rajamouli is likely to buy some share of an upcoming film ‘Andala Rakshasi’ and distribute the film.
We know that, Sai Korrapati who produced Rajamouli’s latest sensation ‘Eega’ is the producer of Andala Rakshasi. It is heard that, Rajamouli who was amazed with the film, decided to buy some share of the film. Dil Raju, who bought the film rights, is releasing the movie all over AP. Naveen Chandra, Rahul Ravindran and Lavanya are lead cast in this triangular love story. Debutant Hanu Raghavapudi has directed the movie and Radhan has composed the music. ‘Andala Rakshasi’ is expected to hit the screens on August 15th.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli says that he cannot even consider a Bollywood film till another 4 years.“I have a number of movie commitments with our Industry that will take me at least 4 years to fulfill, so I cannot think about Hindi movies until then”, he said. He made these comments at a special press meet held to introduce the Makuta Vfx Team
“Kamal Kannan is the reason behind me starting Eega.He provided the spark by challenging me to narrate a story that people may find tough to believe. He gave me the confidence needed for this movie”,Rajamouli said. He was all praise for the VFX team of ‘Eega’. “Everyone in the team is responsible for the success. Together they were able to achieve stunning visual effects that were not seen before by the audience”, he said.
Pete Dropper, a key Vfx team member of Makuta, said that ‘Eega’ showcased how high quality visual effects could change the overall movie experience of viewers. He said that their goal would be to bring about a high standard of visual effects to the Indian movie industry. Cinematographer Sendhil Kumar and Producer Sai Korrapati were part of this meet.
Eega joined $1Million club by crossing $1Million reported gross in US on 22nd july (3rd weekend). This is a great honor for a Tollywood movie in US since so far only one Tollywood movie crossed this mark and even normally a few of Bollywood movies crossed $1M mark in US. So far it is standing as the 3rd highest grosser in US Telugu market.
Eega was distributed by 14 reels through Ficus is proud to release this movie in US market and this is Ficus’s 2nd Blockbuster after Dookudu to gross $1million.
Still it is running with decent collections in all major locations. The ticket prices made affordable for this Memorial long week end..
At last Director Rajamouli felt regrets for his statement which were made in Eega movie success tour became sensation throughout the film circles and has projected Rajamouli as an arrogant person.
Rajamouli who is very soft spoken person to overcome such image, He tried to blame media for this nonsense. Rajamouli said earlier, “‘I cannot handle big stars like Chiranjeevi. Maybe if he asks, I’ll provide script for his 150th film. I’m happy directing a small hero like Nani, as directing big heroes is difficult “.
But today in an interview to a news channel he said it all media perception, they have trimmed the statements and have added spiciness to it. He clarified by saying that He was asked a question by a journalist like …Your movie Eega is super hit now so you don’t need heroes in your movies in future?. Rajamouli replied him saying “Rajamouli doesn’t need heroes and Heroes doesn’t need Rajamouli as well , But the story and script demands heroes , for example if I want to make a movie like Magadheera I would only prefer Ramcharan not anyone else at the same time Eega movie does not need any star heroes at all”.
Whatever, all the star heroes who were in shocked state with Rajamouli’s statements are relaxed now as they might get a chance to act under his direction in future.
S.S. Rajamouli’s graphics extravaganza ‘Eega’ is continuing its sterling run in many areas. The movie is generating tremendous collections in multiplexes and overseas areas. Families and kids are enjoying the film and that is said to be the principal reason behind the strong collections.
Samantha and Nani have played the romantic couple in the movie and Sudeep has played the role of the villain. Rajamouli has used never before utilized technologies during the making of the movie and extensive special effects have been used throughout. Keeravani has scored the music for the movie.
Director Rajamouli’s graphical extravaganza Eega is creating mind blowing records at Overseas Boxoffice. Eega will be the first film to continue its dream run at UK boxoffice for the 3rd week ,With record openings worldwide it continues to rule the overseas market. The film has been doing particularly well in USA where the film released amid huge hype.
Trade pundits say that if the film continues with its dream run it would replace Pawan Kalyan’s Gabbar Singh and Mahesh Babu’s Dookudu as the highest grossing Telugu film abroad. The movie has reportedly grossed in excess of 9,00,000$ already in USA for second weekend. Dookudu and Gabbar Singh are reportedly the top two grossing Telugu films in America. While Dookudu became the first ever Telugu film to gross over a million dollars by second weekend, Gabbar Singh is reported to have collected over 9,60,000$ by second weekend.
Next week’s huge release ”The Dark Knight Rises ” might be a hurdle for Eega’s dream run . Considering the fact that “The Amazing Spiderman which was released around the same time Eega hit the screens and still Eega gave a tough competition for Hollywood flick. This proves the Eega high flying stamina.
Gabbar Singh collected $940,828 by 2nd weekend while Eega collected $913,046. And by the end of third weekend the total figure of Gabbar Singh collection stood at $ 962,163. Sources say that this may be crossed by Eega comfortably by 3rd weekend.
Till now only Dookudu and Gabbar Singh were no#1 and no#2 grossers at US Box office among Telugu films. Now Eega may cross Gabbar Singh, say sources.
On a whole Eega has been attracting huge audiences everywhere and is making huge collections.
Both in India and abroad Eega is flying high with triumphant success.
MAA TV has bagged the satellite rights of director SS Rajamouli’s latest release 'Eega'. In fact, it has been reported that Eega satellite rights have fetched Rs. 4.30 crores. Eega has won laurels from all sections of audience for its wonderful graphics and visual effects (VFX) works. Nani, Samantha and Sudeep played lead roles in this film produced by Sai Korrapati. MM Keeravani is the music director.
Director Rajamouli who was actively being in promoting his latest graphical wonder Eega reached Radio Mirchi today to attend the special program on Eega and share his thoughts with Radio Mirchi listeners.
Rajamouli was received by Radio mirchi team gestured with a red ‘Hit’ (repellent) in their hands which surprised the creative director and felt very happy for the special welcome. Rajamouli spend few hours sharing his feeling and enjoying Eega’s success with listeners.
While the most interesting part was cake cutting, A special Eega shape cake was kept in front of the director which made him feel little uneasy,but still he took it in a sportive manner and he cut the wings of the House-fly shape cake as it was done by Sudeep in Eega movie. Obviously he ate the wing and others enjoyed eating other parts of delicious house fly shaped cake.
Eega super success at boxoffice has changed the life of the young hero Nani . This Gen-X hero who used to get a warm response where ever he go but after Eega release, Nani received overwhelming welcome from public for the first time. His stardom reached heights when he reached vizag airport to attend Tollywood star cricket. The large enthusiastic crowd, which had waited for hours observing the arrival of young star, Jubilation amidst cheers, singing, shouting and waving of handkerchiefs the moment he arrived.
Though there were senior heroes like Srikanth, Tarun and other Tollywood celebrities, But Nani was the center of attraction among them. Even the local police officials were excited to have a cheese with Nani and kids were busy in taking autographs. Nani looked very humble and down to earth with a sweet smile on his face. And one word was uttered by everyone present there , its Eega ..Eega …Eega.
Rajamouli-directed film Eega was released in limited number of screens in USA due to unavailablity of cinema halls and the movie had single show on several screens in the opening week. So the makers increased the number of shows on several screens and also released it in 20 more cinema halls. They expected it to fetch even better collection than the last Friday.
But to their disappointment, Eega has failed to meet their calculations in the country on the second Friday. Sudeep-Samantha starrer movie has collected Rs 39 lakhs ($ 70,744) at the USA Box Office on the second Friday. Its business has fallen down by more than 50%. With this, the film has grossed a total of Rs 4.02 crores ($ 730,457) in nine days of its release in the country.
Whereas Billa 2 and Cocktail, which hit the screens in USA this Friday, have opened to an earth shattering response on the first day of their release in the country. ?Billa 2 has collected Rs 33.34 lakhs ($ 60,478), while Cocktail raked in Rs 1.21 crore ($ 220,000). Both the movies have surely affected the collection of Eega on their opening day in the country.
It’s been a week since the movie ‘Eega’ has released, but with the success of the film, it feels like forever. Every common man you ask about the film and they all go wow!!!! Well this is how the ace director S. S. Rajamouli has built the movie, with a strong foundation, standing tall.
Now it is heard that the makers of the movie are planning a sequel. Sources say, they are studying the idea of it and trying to make notes and even producers Sai Korrapati and Daggubati Suresh Babu are very excited about it.
However at the moment, Rajamouli is very busy with a project that includes young star Prabhas, followed by a few other ones too. So let us now see how the sequel is going to come along.
Director Rajamouli changed his attitude completely after Eega super success, Jakkanna who used to be polite with all star heroes and answer heroes fans in a very dignified manner keeping his intentions secret and answer them in such a way that fans never get hurt or lose hopes. But now he became very open and started criticizing even top heroes with his arrogent statements .What the media and industry colleagues could not elicit, ‘Eega’, or rather its glory, has caused Rajamouli to speak on his future plans. He is very unlikely to make a film with Mahesh Babu, or Pawan Kalyan (who has expressed his desire to act under his direction) for that matter.
Today, In Eega success tour at Rajahmundry , Out of curiosity Mega fans once again asked Rajamouli the same question about the directing Chiru’s 150th film, Instead of smiling or saying ‘lets see’ (his previous mannerism before Eega success) , He said openly I wont direct any star heroes movies especially Chiranjeevi’s. And said atmost i can provide him with a script if they ask me , He also stated that he can only direct heroes like Nani but not Top heroes.
However, this is only the smaller part. The big news is that he (or his father, Vijayendra Prasad) seems to have an idea for Chiranjeevi. The one thing that has been stopping ‘Chiru’ from making a mega re-entry on the screen is a terrific idea. If Rajamouli had an idea, Megastar’s fans would well look forward to a stunning comeback of their hero in grand way or else his father might take up the opportunity.
The first week Nizam collections of ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ are out. At the end of the 6th day, the film’s Nizam’s collection stands at about Rs. 6.83Crores share. By the end of today, the film’s share is projected to be about Rs. 7.45 Crores, which is a phenomenal 1st week figure for a movie which has no big commercial hero.
Credit for the film’s bumper openings and strong run goes to Rajamouli’s creative genius. The film is continuing its strong run in many areas and with an impressive overseas performance coming in, the total collections of the film are expected to be outstanding.
With Rajamouli Eega super success at boxoffice , Director Rajamouli feels that he is on cloud nine, His arrogant statements on star heroes proved that success kick has reached his head to utter these statements.
Rajamouli who started his career with these star heroes slowly managed to gain popularity among audience and set his trade mark to reach top director position of Tollywood. Now with latest flick Eega which has no star hero, has got good review rating as well as super openings, Salute for his marketing techinique by continiously attending all the audio functions of star heroes at the same time marketing his Eega on every platform for all these months to keep the craze among public.
Now after Eega’s release, Rajamouli planned Eega success tour as Eega was doing well only at ‘ A’ centers whereas in B and C centers there was huge drop witnessed from monday onwards . When interviewed about Eega success Rajamouli said , Star’s image can only bring good openings but true success lies with director how he handles the emotions and project them perfectly, And said Stars can atmost widen the success range but Eega proved that every one wrong with huge openings as well as success range. Don’t you think you might heard such statements earlier ? Yes, you are right these statements sounds something … A veteran director Dasari Narayana Rao always make. Last but not least Rajamouli said Eega is like oxygen for director fraternity from now all with try to believe their ablitity rather believing in Stardom for success.
With these above statements Rajamouli meant to say stardom is nothing before him. Observers say When success haunts some one they forget their past ..Lets see how long Rajamouli brand name works with out depending of star heroes image for his future projects.
Two among the top league directors of Tollywood are the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli and the mass moviemaker V V Vinayak. As such, Rajamouli is considered the number 1 director in Tollywood. Now, it is heard that he has given a shock of sorts to Vinayak by revealing something.
Apparently, Vinayak has been planning to come up with the remake of the immortal classic 'Daana Veera Soora Karna'. This has been his lifetime ambition. However, Rajamouli recently stated that his life ambition is also to remake 'Mahabharata'. Well, if given a choice between Rajamouli and Vinayak then the former will get more votes.
Moreover, he has more grip in such subjects as his team has got many who have familiarity. His Pedda Nana Sivasakthi Dutta is considered a renowned person with knowledge in epic stuff. Even music director Keeravani has got good grip over the music for such era. The mythological fervor is high in Rajamouli camp so it remains to be seen if Vinayak's dream will come true or not.
Sensational director Rajamouli's life ambition has been revealed by the director himself during a chit chat with a daily recently. He says that he wants to direct 'Mahabharatam remake' and that is his dream project. However, it is unclear whether Rajamouli's favorite actor NTR would act in this exciting project or not. Only time can answer this question and lets hope Rajamouli's dream come true and we get to see a top notch visual entertainer in the form of Mahabharatam movie remake. Rajamouli's latest release 'Eega' is a smash hit at box office and the director is showered with praises from several celebrities.

Now that Eega has been declared a blockbuster, ace director S.S.Rajamouli is facing new difficulties. Surprised? Well, we are talking about his difficulty in fending off a flood of offers from all the biggies in the industry. With a 100% success record and a magical ability to read public pulse, Rajamouli is currently the toast of the Film Industry and the most ‘in demand’ man. He is being deluged with fancy offers to accept new projects.
Rajamouli has not officially confirmed any new project yet and there is excitement among fans of all the heroes to see which project he takes up after the blockbuster success of ‘Eega’. How does one refuse so many tempting and lucrative offers? That is indeed a difficult choice but it is a situation every director dreams of being in.

No doubt both Rajamouli and Shankar are a creative directors , With Eega being declared a sensaional hit , Rajamouli almost occupied the throne South india’s top director position. But tamil media seems not in a position to accept this fact. As Shankar name and fame on risk at this moment with Nanban being a average flick.
Tamil media especially web media started writing baseless articles on Eega. Latest among them, They are trying to prove that Eega was inspired from Shankar’s Robo. If one can remember the mosquito episode in Robo where a mosquito tries to bites the heroine and Robo (Rajanikanth ) chases it and find it and makes it to tell sorryto heroine. Keeping this in mind tamil web media stated that Rajamouli’s Eega was inspired from Robo, with a revenge script adding some masala to it and prove himself a creative director.
They also mentioned that Eega is a fairy tale story for kids strictly. But as the matter of fact Eega story line was in Rajamouli’s mind for past 10 ten years and had got chance to execute it now. Robo was made with 100 crores but Eega is made with just 30 crores , this is a great achievement for Rajamouli . Knowing the calibre of Rajamouli it a shame for tamil web media to come up with such base less stories

Still Telugu film Eega tasted a super-success in USA collecting $ 343,077 including premier shows .
Thu $ 42,409
Fri $ 156,408
Sat $ 144,260
Total: $ 343,077. (around Rs.2 crores )
For a movie like Eega with no proper star cast with such huge openings is really fantastic . Rajamouli brand name is the only selling factor for this film. Its hard to say how long this brand name would be the saving factor for the film because most of overseas audience prefer watching in their home threatres after prirated DVD’s are released. Already Eega HD print are on some torrent sites. Its really a bad news for Rajamouli who spend almost 2 years for this movie
Rajamouli’s film sets a Tollywood record with the Telugu satellite rights being sold for `5.1 crores to MAA TV for a period of 15 years. This doesn’t include internet, digital and DVD rights. The Tamil rights of the film were sold for Rs 3.5 crores to PVP cinema. What’s more, the film procured promotional space worth Rs 1 crore on Sun network for free!
M inuscule’ seems to be ‘in’ these days. The ‘God Particle’ has been trending big time on the Internet since news of its possible discovery broke out a couple of days. but it has run into some serious competition! And it’s coming from a common housefly — one that’s not even real!
Director Rajamouli has hit bull’s eye with his latest flick, “Eega”, whose hero is not a typical muscle-flexing, larger-than-life Tollywood superstar, but an animated housefly who can act, beat up the baddies, and what’s more, dance too!
In fact, in a tongue-in-cheek sign-off scene at the end of the movie, the computer-generated eega even has a solo dance number, in which he pulls off everything from Chiranjeevi’s famous “veena-step” from “Indra” to Allu Arjun’s trademark “knee twirlers”.
Within hours of its release, the eega started trending on Twitter worldwide and topped the India trending list too. From celebs to fans to filmmakers, everyone was tweeting about how a housefly did what no other hero could for Tollywood. It’s no surprise then that the industry is feeling threatened by this versatile pest-turned-hero.
Allu Arjun, whose “Julayi” is due for release next week, will be the first one to battle the lil’ housefly at the BO. Even Ravi Teja’s “Devudu Chesina Manushulu” and Prabhas’s “Rebel” that are set for release might have to fight this pesky fly
Rajamouli technical wonder created an impression on every one who watched it. This movie is not only blockbuster-film but also taken the standards of telugu cinema to new heights.
Bollywood critic Tarun Adarsh said A film like Eega sets new benchmarks. Takes Indian cinema forward. Kudos to everyone associated with this fantabulous film.Any amount of praise will not do justice. All I can say is that it makes me proud that we live in the times of the genius ssrajamouli.
Rajamouli was flooded with greetings for his grand success,
Director Puri said Hats off to ssrajamouli EEGA is fantastic Simply superb Congrats to Nani Samantha n Sudeep.
Ramgopal verma said In Eega ssrajamouli brought out the child in evry1 whthr he’s 8 yrs old or 80 yrs old..congrats 2 him fr pioneering a new era in cinema!
Hero Ram said Team Eega deserves standing ovation.
According to initial trade reports Eega is going to set all time record for the first day crossing double digit share (in crores) as it was released in all the four languages , Hindi movie Bol Bachchan was badly effected by Eega today. All credit goes to Rajamouli’s magic…..
Just like the way the domestic market is important for the Tollywood folks, an important place is also occupied by the overseas market. Special efforts are always put to promote the films overseas and it is no surprise that even worldwide releases are happening.
According to the latest information, director Rajamouli has joined the league of top grossers. He is standing next to Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu in terms of delivering huge opening at overseas box office. Usually, most of the premier shows for Pawan and Mahesh movies go full.
Now, something like that has happened with Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’. Given the fact that Rajamouli is not a superstar but a director this is surely a worthy achievement. What remains to be seen is whether ‘Eega’ will get enough strength to get past the movie collections of the other two superstars.
S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ tickets were sold out by afternoon and all the booking sites has been closed. The tickets for this movie were sold out within a couple of hours and at Prasad’s Multiplex were sold out in Minutes. There was maddening rush to watch a housefly action move in theaters. The movie comes with power packed special effects and high quality visuals and innovative storyline. The film is released in three languages.
S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ is all set to hit the screens this Friday and there is a huge positive buzz for the film. Craze for the film has picked up immensely ever since the censor formalities have been completed and there is excitement among both movie lovers as well as Film Industry people to see what Rajamouli has done with the common housefly. Kids are expected to connect with the movie big time.
This is perhaps the first time in recent memory where a very big budget movie is generating tremendous collections without the padding of a top commercial hero. Success of this movie will change the game for a lot of aspiring young movie makers as the industry will be more receptive to new ideas. One more day to go for people’s verdict to come out , so lets cross our fingers and wait.
Making a hero out of an ordinary housefly and managing to create a huge buzz around it. That is what makers of Telugu film Eega have managed to do. It will have a multilingual release, first in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam this Friday. The Hindi version will release about two weeks later.
Even before its release, the story of revenge of a housefly, Eega in Telugu and Naan Ee in Tamil, has created more than a buzz in the film world. In just two weeks, its trailers got five lakh hits on Youtube, impressive for a film where a housefly plays the hero.
“When I say I am making a film on a housefly, there will be wonder, smile. What would be the story? How can you make a fly act? 10-15 percent there will be heckling and thinking has he gone mad? I am still okay with that. But you can’t ignore it. That is the USP of the film,” said director S.S. Rajamouli
Rajamouli says Eega started as a small-budget experimental film but grew big as it developed. With over 90 minutes of visual effects and realistic animation, the film cost upto 35 crore rupees and will have a multilingual release.
“First time in Indian cinema you have realistic animation characters,” People are started calling him ‘Eegamouli’. added Rajamouli.
Rajamouli delivered a super-hit with Magadheera, starring Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Teja, and another hit with Maryada Ramanna that had no big stars. Making a hero out of a housefly is certainly going to be a much, much bigger challenge.
Nani began his career with Ashta Chamma and is slowly consolidating his position as a fine actor with films such as Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu, Ala Modalaindi and Pilla Jamindar.He is getting to work with some of the big names in the Telugu and Tamil industries, such as Rajamouli, Krishnavamsi and Gautham Vasudev Menon.Nani has a small yet significant role in S S Rajamouli’s Eega (Naan Ee in Tamil) which releases on July 6. Nani said : Before I got his call, I had heard rumours about me getting the role. I knew about Eega and the lead role through Suresh Babu.When I got the call from Rajamouli and met him, he narrated the story. Nobody has tried anything like this in Telugu cinema. Eega is a landmark film.I’m happy and lucky to get this opportunity. The narration itself was mind blowing and Rajamouli has taken it to another level with the graphics and the execution. Like any normal movie buff, I want to watch the film.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ is witnessing unbelievable rush for tickets ever since bookings opened for multiplexes today morning. All shows in Prasads Multiplex were sold out in minutes,and this kind of craze is usually reserved only for the biggest heroes of TFI.
According to trade , Eega recording housefulls for first 3 days in all the multiplexes , At Single screens in A centers are also full while B and C centers getting warm response . With this kind of response it might give a tight fight to all the star-studded movies with only brand name of Rajamouli.
‘Eega’ is carrying a very positive buzz and the film is all set to release worldwide in a big way this Friday. With never before seen special effects, high quality visuals and innovative storyline, ‘Eega’ promises to be a solid entertainer for all sections of the audience.
Ace Director Rajamouli seems to be fascinated after seeing the first copy of his graphical extravaganza Eega. The movie Eega is made of huge budget over 40+ crores and is simultaneously releasing in 4 languages on July 6th. He seems to be happy the way Eega has come out. His confidence has turned into over confidence visible by his latest comments stating that Eega will become number uno film of Tollywood and will cross 100 crores share for its Telugu version alone. He said….
I think ‘Eega` will b first film to start the 100 crore club in telugu industry..in othr words I mean it will collect 100 cr in telugu alone….
Any one can claim anything but the fact lies how people connect to the film, basically the film has regular story, Every thing lies how Rajamouli show it on big screen with his 2200+ computer graphic shots . Prior to Magadheera their were not much English dubbed films and even Telugu audience were not much used to those films, but the story is different now. People of Andhra Pradesh are thoroughly following and enjoying the English films, Fact is that most of the hollywood films are made up of 2000 crores are getting more response than regional films in recent times. But Rajamouli’s Eega which is completely depended on technicality in hollywood style , will it be able to statisfy and give the ‘Wow’ experience is a million dollar question for now.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s graphical magnum opus ‘Eega’ is carrying a sensational censor report. The movie has completed its certification formalities and it has been awarded a U/A certificate. Our exclusive sources have informed us that the movie has come out very well and it is going to be a never before seen experience in Indian cinema. In one word, a sensational experience. The interval block has come in for special praise in this early report. ‘Eega’ is all set for a massive release on July 6th and Rajamouli has spent more than a year on this project to hone it to perfection.
The movie is being eagerly anticipated in movie circles across the country as the success of this project will open new avenues for our filmmakers. The movie is going to be released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi versions and a 3D version is also in the works. Keeravani has scored the music for this movie. With this kind of talk coming out, we can’t wait to watch ‘Eega’.
For any movie, what matters for attaining maximum in collections is 'publicity'. Off late, this 'progress report' is blowing the minds of Tollywood. Check the story!
To cover the delay in the release of movie, Rajamouli has come up with a unique publicity stunt now. He started explaining about the progress of 'Eega' through a video that gets released every alternate day, titled 'Progress Report'. The director reveals how many CG shots are yet to complete and how far the dts work has reached. Indeed, people who don't know about these post production processes are getting immense interest about it. This in turn is giving huge hype to 'Eega' movie and everyone started feeling like the wait is worth.
They say that Rajamouli has invented this publicity stunt to amass huge collections for 'Eega' in the starting weeks itself. To recover the huge budget of this Nani, Samantha, Sudeep starrer, not only a hit is necessary, it is compulsory!
Rajamouli, who is directing the much-talked about socio-fantasy flick, “Eega” has decided to dub for the title character of the fly himself. Earlier, actor Nani was to lend his voice to the computer-generated fly, which is a reincarnation of Nani’s character in the film.
But sources now say that the ace director has decided to add a twist by voicing the character himself. The bi-lingual (Telugu and Tamil) movie that also stars Sudeep and Samantha in the lead roles will include some of the most expensive CG work ever in the industry.
Director SS Rajamouli’s graphical extravaganza Eega is set for a release on 6th July in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam versions with 1200 prints. The film will be released in Telugu version with the Karnataka subtitles. Eega featuring Nani, Samantha and Sudeep in the lead roles is being presented by producer D.Suresh Babu while Sai Korrapati is producing the movie on Vaarahi Chalana Chitra banner.
Titled as Naan Ee in Tamil and Eecha in Malayalam, the film has loads of graphics and it would be visual treat to the audiences giving a new experience.
Perfectionist Rajamouli is finally happy with the outcome of Eega and is gearing up for the movie's release. Eega is coming out on July 6 and this has been confirmed by Rajamouli. He says that there won't be any further delays as he is extremely happy and satisfied with the outcome. However, Rajamouli has shattered the plans of others by suddenly fixing the release date of Eega.
Trivikram's movie Julayi was actually planned for release on July 6th. With Eega coming out on the same day, now Julayi release has to be pushed back. Julayi makers have told to the buyers that the film would be out by 6th of July and book the theaters accordingly. However, Eega's arrival has messed up their plans.
Not only Julayi but also Devudu Chesina Manushulu has been troubled by Eega's sudden entry into the picture. As there were rumors that Eega will only come out by July end, others planned their releases early in July. But Puri Jagannadh is left in a doubt about when to release DC Manushulu now. It will all now depend upon Eega and Julayi performance at the box office.
S S Rajamouli is pushing the boundaries of the usage of VFX in Telugu films to an all time high. His upcoming magnum opus Eega reportedly has an unprecedented 2234 CG shots. His previous film, Magadheera had only 890 VFX shots. Compared to Magadheera, his latest film Eega is proving to be far more technical challenge. Recently, Rajamouli spoke in length about why the post production of Eega is taking so much time in an elaborate three part series titled Eega’s Progress Report. Right from sound effects to the humoungous number of CG shots, every minute detail is being taken care of. Moreover, the film is releasing in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi which means that there’s plenty of work on the plate for Rajamouli’s team. “Makuta is doing most part of the VFX for Eega. We are confident that the entire CG part will be completed by June 20. Most part of the CG work has already been completed and there are still 269 CG shots which need to be corrected,” Rajamouli said. Although Eega might not have the visual splendor as seen in the flashback episodes of Magadheera, the fact that each and every movement and sound of the ‘housefly’ in every shot had to be created from scratch, is the reason why Eega has turned out to be a far more challenging film. With everything falling into place as scheduled, Rajamouli is planning to release the film on July 6. Sai Korrapati has produced the film and Suresh Babu is presenting the film in AP. M M Keeravani has composed the music and the background score. Nani, Samantha and Sudeep have played the lead roles.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s graphical extravaganza ‘Eega’ is all set to hit the screens on July 6th as per the latest news from the film’s unit. The fly is carrying a lot of expectations on it not only at the state level, but across the country as well. The movie has been delayed for a while now because of the extensive special effects and graphics involved.
Rajamouli has been spending long hours to ensure a top quality product and the film is expected to be quite revolutionary on many fronts once it releases. Samantha, Nani and Sudeep are playing the lead roles in this revenge drama of a fly. The movie has been produced on Varahi Creations banner and M.M.Keeravani has scored the music.
The mania that the film 'Gabbar Singh' has created needs no explanation. The film is marching its way to create new records and has already grabbed the second position among the highest grossers in Tollywood history. However, it appears that another film might pose a threat to this.
We are talking about the film 'Eega' and talks are making rounds about the film by the tough taskmaster Rajamouli overtaking power star Pawan Kalyan's commercial entertainer. The hype surrounding 'Eega' and the inside talk on how the film has been shaping up very well is showing the potential of a blockbuster.
But few cine folks are negating this. They state that 'Eega' has no star value except the director and though the graphics might be pathbreaking, that won't really appease the B, C centre audiences who would expect some nice comedy and entertainment mixed with heavy dialogues. Above all Gabbar Singh completes its full run, by the time Eega hits the screens. So, Eega will not be able to affect Gabbar Singh as of now. Let us see if Eega breaks existing records with its flying power!
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli is giving his very best to make ‘Eega’ his finest offering to date. Tollywood’s most successful director is spending long hours over the post production activities of the film to ensure a high quality output. With this kind of an effort and dedication, will the film be his biggest ever blockbuster? Trade analysts are optimistic about the prospects.
The movie has garnered incredible national level attention, something which no other Telugu movie of the recent past has succeeded in doing. With this level of attention, the market for the film will naturally be much bigger than any of Rajamouli’s previous films. Some of Bollywood’s biggest names have been publicly expressing their praise for the film and their eagerness to watch it. Noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh joined the list today by putting out a tweet. “Very very keen to watch S.S. Rajamouli’s much-awaited Telugu film #Eega.” he tweeted.
The movie has Samantha, Nani and Sudeep in the lead roles while M.M.Keeravani has scored the music. The film is expected to hit the screens in July in four languages – Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.
Though it has been getting postponed from the past few months, the film ‘Eega’ has still maintained to keep that same level of interest and enthusiasm among the cine buffs and the Tollywood circuit. And it appears that it is not just the state but the nation which is looking forward to the film’s release.
A well known film analyst from Bollywood Taran Adarsh stated in his Twitter like this: Very very keen to watch S.S. Rajamouli's much-awaited Telugu film # Eega. And even the National media has been putting a lot of focus on this project. The fact that this is the first sci-fi movie in Telugu made on a very large scale and released as a multilingual is the key factor.
Secondly, it is the ever successful director S S Rajamouli helming the project which has increased the popularity quotient. According to the inside talk, the film has shaped up very well and it has got a strong positive vibe. If all these factors work then it will not be a surprise to see ‘Eega’ chasing ‘Gabbar Singh’ in collections.
According to Rajamouli ….EEGA Postponed due to Heavy Graphics Work,.. It Takes So much time to develop the scenes..Late avuthunnanduku meeke inthala Unte Rajamouli garu producer garu inkentha badhapadatharo Okkasari Aaalochinchandi… Clarity and Quality Unna Movie kosam Enni days Wait chesina no Problem..

Last But Not the Least.. Late ga vachina andarini thrilling Experience tho Adaragoduthundi EEGA .. . :) — Admin .. Thank’s for your Support….
Maverick director Rajamouli’s forthcoming film Eega has been once again postponed to July due to the extensive VFX works. It was supposed to release in the early but now the post-production works are taking much time than the expected and so resulted in the delay in release.
The visual graphical extravaganza casts Nani, Samantha and Sudeep in the lead roles. Sai Korrapati produced the film in Telugu and Tamil versions on Vaarahi Chalana Chitra banner. Suresh Productions is presenting it. MM Keeravani composed the music and Senthil cranked the camera.
Eega will have a simultaneous release in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada in the month of July.
Rajamouli is a tough taskmaster and never gets compromised with the end product. He wants to make his films to be on top in every aspect. Hence he is known as 'Amara silpi Jakkanna'! NTR who has done three films with Rajamouli says that he keeps on giving the final touches to the film even after it is completely ready.
For Eega, the sculptor Rajamouli is at work big time as there is no big star in the film to bank upon or back him. Therefore he is making sure of Eega to be hundred percent perfect. Due to this Eega has missed the core summer season already. Eega audio was launched in March and the film is yet to make it to the theaters.
As per the latest news, Eega release has been pushed to last week of June. Chances are high for the film to release in the first half of July. This is not the first time that a Rajamouli's film missed the targeted release date. Most of his films including Magadheera, Vikramarkudu, Simhadri etc were released in either June or July. Despite missing the best season, Rajamouli's film fared well. Imagine what could they have achieved if they were out in summer? Let's hope Eega too scores a big hit for Rajamouli in spite of missing the targeted release date.
It is happening again. Whenever the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli comes up with a film, he never releases it on the time scheduled. It happened with 'Magadheera' and it got repeated with 'Maryada Ramanna' too and now it is heard that the same is happening with his much talked about movie 'Eega'.
Buzz is that the film which was due for release on May 30th has been postponed. Apparently, the film was to arrive in mid May itself but nothing happened. This time, the reason for the delay is slated to be the completion of the CG work. This was revealed by Rajamouli himself, as per sources.
While he has assured that the team is working 24 X 7 to complete the entire work, it is heard that the film will now be arriving during mid June. Due to this, the other films are now having to change their release dates and one film which has been suffering high is 'Endukante Premanta'. Let us hope atleast this time 'Eega' releases as mentioned.
S S Rajamouli’s upcoming magnum opus Eega will not release on May 30, as announced earlier. Apparently, the CG is taking a lot of time and Rajamouli and his team didn’t expect that it would take so much time. Confirming this news, Rajamouli tweeted, “For every film enthusiast out there who have been waiting for eega, I apologise as we are not releasing on 30th of this month. I know it is disappointing. I am disappointed myself.We underestimated the amount of time for CG. I am extremely happy with the quality of CG 4 the shots we received so far.I want2ensure d same quality is maintained4 the rest. Everyone is workin 24/7 to get d film out ASAP Hope U’ll excuse :) ” Nani, Samantha and Sudeep are playing lead roles in the film. M M Keeravani has composed the music and Senthil is the cinematographer. Sai Korrapati has produced the film and D Suresh Babu is presenting it.

Ace director Rajamouli is busy winding the last parts of his latest film to fire it before the audience in the last week of May. Let's talk about the business of this movie.
'Eega', the big budgeted sci-fi extravaganza of Rajamouli is targeting only a recovery of 30% from Box Office. Already, the makers are able to pull 70% of their investment through satellite rights, dubbing rights and area-wise selling of the film. With the popularity of the brand 'Rajamouli', they are able to get soaring prices for this film. They say that most of the area rights are sold on NRA basis that incurs no loss to producer even in case of loss.
NRA means Non-Returnable Advance, which the distributors pay agreeing that they will not demand it back in case of a flop show. Trade experts expressed that 'Eega' needs a week run at BO to make the producer cross loss-line. Distributors will also lie on safe side if there are no competitors for this flick for a couple of weeks. Wait and see.
Ace director S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ is making waves even before release. The movie’s Tamil satellite rights have fetched a solid price of Rs. 3.35 Crores and this shows the craze surrounding the project. The movie’s Tamil rights have been bagged by PVP Cinema group and ‘Eega’ is gearing up for a big release on the 30th.
Samantha, Nani and Sudeep are the lead actors in this innovative project. M.M.Keeravani has scored the music and his re-recording is expected to be the lifeblood of the film. Sai is producing this film on Vaaraahi Chalana Chitram banner and Suresh Babu is the executive producer.
For any director, publicity earned through the brand value of his 'hero' plays a vital role in collections. Ace director Rajamouli is no exception to this.
Shockingly, the hero of his upcoming film is a 'fly', but not the on-screen hero Nani or villain Sudeep. Our creative cook master is not leaving this 'fly' even, to fetch him big in terms of filling cash boxes. The other day, Rajamouli has erected a giant cut-out of 'Eega' in the popular IMAX theatre complex. People who are rushing to catch 'Gabbar Singh' and other movies are going jaw dropped after watching this display.
In turn, this is garnering huge attention from everyone and there is no doubt that they will miss 'Eega' in theatres. Cine observers are saying that Rajamouli is using the craze of his 'fly' to a max such that it'll not burn the pockets of producer. According to reports, 'Eega' needs a desperate blockbuster status to recover its mammoth budget.
Yes, we're right! Hero Nani will die and his soul enters 'Eega', but he never gets a chance to meet that fly in person. But, this is happening now.
Rajamouli's 'Eega' is all set to hit theatres in the last week of May. Already, the trailers have created enough buzz for this flick, which features dynamic Nani and sexy Samantha in the leads. According to reports, Rajamouli has planned for a song at the end of film while credits roll. Like in his 'Magadheera', this end-song is also said to be weaved with a stunning concept. One of them is Nani and Samantha dancing with 'Eega'.
One of the main delays behind the release of this flick is this end-credits song, says a source. After the high energetic success of 'Gabbar Singh' in Tollywood, this Rajamouli's flick looks promising either to beat that craze or create records.
Sensational director S.S.Rajamouli’s latest flick ‘Eega’ is all set to go for censor certification on May 21st.
"Gearing up to get Eega censored on 21st, hoping to get a U certification like Maryadaramanna," tweeted Rajamouli in his micro-blogging page. The makers are gearing up for the movie to hit the screens on May 30th. Rajamouli is no way interested to delay the release of the movie, even though the VFX works are pending. If such situations arrive director is planning to release the film without these scenes and then later would add them as a special attraction.
Sai Korapati is producing Eega on Vaaraahi Chalana Chitram banner and Suresh Babu is the executive producer for this graphical extravaganza that casts Samantha, Nani and Sudeep in the lead roles. M.M.Keeravani has composed the music tunes that are highly accepted, Rama Rajamouli has handled the costumes. Eega will hit the screens in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi simultaneously on May 30th.
