Rowdy Rathore is on its way to becoming one of the biggest blockbusters in Bollywood having scored record opening with Rs 47.50 Crores in the first three days.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, this film is a remake of Telugu super hit, Vikramarkudu. The success of Rowdy Rathore has made our top director Rajamouli even more popular and special. Vikramarkudu was already remade in Tamil and Kannada successfully. This is the second time a Telugu film has succeeded in all the four languages, first being Puri Jagannadh`s Pokiri.
Rajamouli`s another super hit, Maryada Ramanna, is now being remade in Hindi by Ajay Devgn as Son of Sardar.
Tollywood`s all-time biggest blockbuster, Magadheera, again directed by Rajamouli, will be remade in Hindi.
Known for making movies that elevate heroism to the peak, Rajamouli`s movies are now being lapped up by other language audiences. He already enjoys the No.1 position among Telugu directors with a track record of hundred percent success. With Bollywood producers bagging his old movies to remake rights, Rajamouli`s graph has further been elevated.
Even Prabhu Deva thanked Rajamouli for Rowdy Rathore`s success in an interview. He said: "First and foremost I would like to thank SS Rajamouli sir. He made the original, Vikramarkudu in Telugu and it had all the essential items required for a mass movie. It is a perfect entertainer that will work worldwide with the Indian audiences."
