While filmmaker SS Rajamouli is gearing up for the release of MAKKHI, Hindi remake of his Telugu blockbuster EEGA, which hits the screens on 12th October 2012 by Reliance Entertainment, he also has plans to make a sequel of the same.
SS Rajamouli reveals about his plans for sequel, "Yes, we have the idea to make a sequel. That's the obvious reason why we ended filming in a certain way but unless we have a proper story in place we won't begin it. We made EEGA because we had good story in hand and not just for the sake of making it. So the day we hit upon a heart-warming entertaining story we'll definitely make the sequel."
SS Rajamouli, a name to reckon with down south, has delivered eight blockbusters and one superhit film in a row and now he is riding high on the success of his Telugu blockbuster EEGA. Probe Rajamouli about having back-to-back successes and he says, "I have been asked this question many a times by many people but, very frankly, I never had an answer. We can be never sure of success. The only thing we can do is give it our 100% and just relax. The result is not in our hands. I only believe in giving 100%."
After tasting success in south Rajamouli has plans to enter Bollywood as well. "Yes I do wish to make debut in Bollywood. I am definitely planning to enter Bollywood. But right now I have commitments down south. I will do a Hindi film soon," says the filmmaker.
EEGA created wonders at the Box-office in India as well as in the USA. It was later released in Tamil and Malyalam as NAAN EE & EECHA respectively. Having successfully reached to audience in 1103 screens in India with its Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam versions, the film's Hindi release would further augment its reach nationwide which is being released as MAKKHI.
And we are sure the blockbuster maker will shatter all the records in Bollywood as well!
