Mumbai, Oct 6 (IANS) Southern filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli, who is gearing up for the release of the Hindi version of his Telugu blockbuster "Eega", says he plans to make a Bollywood film soon.

"Yes I do plan to make a Bollywood film but right now I have many commitments down South. Then later I may do a Bollywood film. I am eagerly looking forward to do a Hindi film," Rajamouli told IANS.

Two of the director's films, "Vikramarkudu" and "Maryada Ramanna", have already been remade in Hindi as "Rowdy Rathore" and "Son of Sardaar" respectively.

He is currently busy promoting the Hindi version of "Eega", titled "Makkhi", which will be released in theatres Oct 12 by Reliance Entertainment.

Rajamouli says he is proud that the animation industry in India is growing well.

"In 'Makkhi', 99 percent of the animation is done by Indian animators and this is the biggest pride for me. This shows India has got animation talent," he said.

Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn has lent his voice in "Makkhi". The director has paid tribute to Ajay by adding an extra scene where the fly will be seen balancing itself on the back of two other flies and will speak the famous dialogue - Ata majhi satakli! - from Ajay's hit movie "Singham".

Reacting to this scene Ajay said: "It looks very sweet."
