Director SS Rajamouli who has made one of the biggest blockbusters in Indian Cinema recently said he was blown away by the visuals of KGF.

The makers of KGF starring Yash and Srinidhi Shetty hosted a pre-release event on Sunday, which was attended by BAAHUBALI director SS Rajamouli.

KGF trailer is one of the major talking points across South India. Kannada superstar Yash's film has some jaw-dropping visuals that have even impressed Baahubali director SS Rajamouli.

The director spoke highly about the superstar at the event and praised his work, he said, "A Bus Driver’s Son has become a top star in Kannada industry.”

Rajamouli also said, "I was blown away by the visuals of KGF. They have some original visuals and have not copied from Hollywood movies. The makers want it to be a pan-Indian movie. Merely spending a lot of money wouldn't make a pan-Indian film. The subject should be universal. KGF is a real pan-Indian film."

The director further added, "They (Telugu audience) warm up to any good movies regardless of which industry it is coming from. I am really proud of my people."

The makers had to recreate two specific eras of 2 different places for the film, which also included a lot of VFX making it the talk of the town ever since the first intense trailer of the film was released.
