Rajamouli says he doesn’t deserve Padma ShriPublished: January 27, 2016
Known for humility, ace filmmaker S S Rajamouli is at it again. He has said he doesn’t deserve the Padma Shri award fow which has been selected by the government of India on Monday.
“I don’t know what to say. It is quite a mixed feeling. Very frankly I don’t feel I deserve the honour. This is not humility. I am quite aware of my achievements,” said the ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Naan Ee’ director.
“But I haven’t created any artistic brilliance that deserves this honour. Awarding Ramoji rao garu and Rajinikanth garu with Padma Vibhushan is so apt,” he said.
“Their work created a lasting impression that will reflect even on generations to come. It makes me even more humbled to share the occasion with such stalwarts,” he stated.
