It sounds little weird right? S.S. Rajamouli being one of the richest directors of Tollywood, borrowed just one lac from a senior director?What for? kind of questions must be shooting on your mind right? Chillax guyz..that was very very long back. This incident happened when Maverick director S.S Rajamouli working under his Guru-mentor K. Raghavendra Rao. But what’s interesting is how Darshakendra Raghavendra Rao had helped his Sishya Rajamouli during early days of his career.
When Rajamouli working as an assistant to KRR and directing TV serials in Doordarshan, Rajamouli’s salary used to be just 2000 Rupees per episode. During those days, Rajamouli’s mother encountered with health issues and she needed to be treated abroad. For that, Rajamouli needed Rs 1 Lakh rupee. Having no other option, Rajamouli had approached Raghavendra Rao and said him that he need Rs 1 Lakh. Without even asking any question like why, when, K.R.R simply said Rajamouli to ask in the account department and take Rs 1 Lakh. This is revealed by none other than Rajamouli himself.
Rajamouli has recalled this instance on Friday on the eve of Raghavendra Rao’s birthday. Rajamouli wrote on his FB page, “Raghavendra Rao garu means a lot to me. If I say I learnt direction from him, it would be an understatement. The relationship we share is not only just professional. On my birthday, I would touch the feet of my parents first and then my brother Keeravaani next. Then I would go to K Raghavendra Rao garu and touch his feet.”
This is called Gratitude isn’t it folks?
