’Why Did He Reject Rajamouli’s ‘Bahubali’ Offer?’
Rajamouli is one of the few highly talented directors of tollywood. While actors,actresses and other technicians await for a call to work in Rajamouli’s movies, an art director rigidly said no to work for SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Bahubali’ that has been making headlines regularly. Art director Ravinder Reddy has worked for many films in the past with Rajamouli. He designed sets for the films Yamadonga, Magadheera, Maryada Ramanna, Eega. Rajamouli often appreciates the work of Ravinder. When Ravinder was asked by him to work for ‘Bahubali’ and mentioned that it would take about 4 years, the art director clearly said ‘NO’ to it. He felt that devoting 4 years to a single movie is not a good idea. Ravinder worked for 7 films in past 4 years. As Ravinder Reddy refused to work for Bahubali, the famous art director who designed sets for Robot and Krish, Sabu Cyril replaced him.
