Director S.S. Rajamouli was recently the chief guest for the pre-release event of KGF, the Kannada film starring Yash, that is scheduled for a multiple language release soon. “Four years ago I was chatting about the Kannada film industry with producer Korrapati Sai garu and casually asked him who was the top actor there. He replied that a new boy called Yash had arrived on the scene and was delivering multiple hits”, says Rajamouli.
Upon further asking him about this new actor, Sai said that Yash’s father was a bus driver. I felt great to hear that, and today I want to say that the great thing about Yash’s father is that he continues to be a bus driver even after his son has became a superstar.
Rajamouli says. “I feel that the father is more superstar than his son,” says the director. He reveals that when he went to Bengaluru for the discussion of his film, RRR, Yash met him. “He showed a few visuals of the KGF and they are amazing. You can’t make a pan-Indian film by just putting a lot of money. You have to back it up with the right content and effort. I was blown away after seeing the visuals and called Anil Tandon in Mumbai, requesting him to support the film as much as he can,” says Rajamouli.
The director appreciated the Telugu audience. “If the film is good, our audience encourages it, whatever language it is in. The film is a period drama with Yash playing the lead, while Neil is the director. The film releases on December 21.
