In the picture are SS Rajamouli and Junior NTR discussing a particular scene on the sets of their Student No.1 movie. It was NTR’s second film then which came after a miserable flop debut, Ninnu Choodalani. Rajamouli who until then directed several TV serials and worked under Raghavender Rao, made his debut with the film.
The movie went on to become a remarkable success and gifted the industry with two stars. Today Junior NTR is one of the top heroes in the industry while SS Rajamouli is indisputably the most successful director in Tollywood. He has reached national and international horizons with his Eega movie and is currently directing the costliest movie ever in Telugu – Baahubali starring Prabhas, Anushka, Rana, Tamannah, Ramya Krishna and others.
Interestingly, Raghavender Rao the producer of the film has directed all the songs in the film and Rajamouli with out any prior experience choreographed all the fights in the film. Both Rajamouli and NTR later teamed up with each other for 2 more films – Simhadri and Yamadonga which have turned in to even bigger hits.
