I don’t see any value for awards: RajamouliPublished: November 30, 2015
Director S S Rajamouli, the man of many blockbusters including the recent ‘Baahubali’, has said he is not interested in awards. “I don’t see any value for them”, he told reporters in Kerala.
This was the ‘Naan Ee’ and ‘Magadheera’ maker’s reaction, when journalists asked him about the nomination of the Telugu version of ‘Baahubali’ for the International Indian Film Academy awards.
And he added: “I do not attend any award functions. However, I will be extremely happy if my technicians or people associated with the film win an award. It will be a motivation for them.”
Heaping laurels on Kerala, he said, “Kerala is sculptured in such a way that it is beautiful in every corner of the State. The best thing about Kerala is that we need not wander more for locations. It is a filmmaker’s paradise.”
“When the story of ‘Baahubali’ came to my mind, I wanted to capture the ferocity and hugeness of Athirapally as against the placidity and calmness that is exploited most in the movies shot here,” he said further.
