It is known that Ram Charand Rajamouli’s Magadheera rewrote many existing records in Telugu cinema. Controversial director Ram Gopal Varma has an interesting take on how this film altered Rajamouli’s graph.
Until Magadheera, Rajamouli was on the same league as Vinayak or Puri Jagannadh. Maybe he was just mildly above them. But this changed with Magadheera as the film was conceived on a large scale and it worked very well. Rajamouli started to dream big after this” RGV pointed out.
Well, the impetus given by Magadheera worked so very well that Ram Charan and Rajamouli came together again for RRR and this film is now in the Oscars race. RGV’s words about Magadheera are indeed very much on point in this case.
