The only thing you can think of when discussing the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli and his next project is, the multi-starrer featuring Young Tiger Junior NTR and mega power star Ram Charan. However, here is another interesting update.
His holiness Tridandi Ramanuja Chinna Jeeyar Swamy is currently on a mission. It is 1000 years since the founder of Vishishta Advaita, Ramanujacharya, was born. Hence, Jeeyar Swamy is coming up with a monumental statue in Shamshabad which is going to be just like Akshardham for Delhi. This statue is going to be made with precious metals with massive height.
As part of the 1000 year celebrations, some biggies in this group are planning to come up with a big budget flick on Ramanujacharya as ‘Ramanuja Charitra’. Normally the wizard of words Trivikram Srinivas is close to Chinna Jeeyar Swamy and he takes his blessings. It is heard that when he was consulted he suggested a TV serial.
However, the followers strongly feel only a cinema will give that mass appeal and penetration of Ramanuja Charya’s philosophy among the public. The story revolves around how Ramanuja propagated all castes were same and they can come to temple.
Even for Mahatma Gandhi and Ambedkar, Ramanujacharya is an inspiration. Coming to the point, these big boys are keen to approach and convince Rajamouli. If he really takes it up it would be great because he is good at developing those emotional peaks. Also, till now he has never done a historical. Hope this works.
