Shankar and SS Rajamouli – the Two Most Successful Directors!
Directors Shankar and SS Rajamouli are the two most successful directors in the history of Indian cinema. Both these directors have churned out consecutive hits in their long career establishing an indomitable place for themselves in the world of cinema.
Shankar’s foray into Kollywood was with Gentleman in 2003 and this film was a grand commercial success apart from winning a couple of awards. Since then, Shankar has proved his directorial abilities time and again. The extravagant sets that he uses for his films and the richness displayed on the screens made him one of the expensive directors in the tinsel town.
Apart from directing films, Shankar has a keen eye for selecting good scripts which he produces under his banner S Pictures. Through this production house, Shankar has given opportunities to his proteges who look for a chance to make out on their own in the film industry. Kadhal, Imsai Arasan 23aam Pulikesi, Veyyil, Eeram and other films produced by him bears testimony to this fact.
SS Rajamouli came out with his first film, Student No 1, in 2001 and since then had a string of successful commercial potboilers to his credit. The success that he tasted in Tollywood earned him a good reputation in Indian cinema as most of his films are either dubbed or remade in other languages like Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi, Bhojpuri and Bengali.
Rajamouli’s latest attempt, a technical wonder – Eega/Naan Ee – has catapulted him to a new star status with the film raking in huge collections at the box office.
Both Rajamouli and Shankar are filmmakers who know the pulse of the audiences and make movies accordingly. It is, perhaps, this talent that is inherent in both these directors have earned them a great reputation not just in the Indian cinema but in world cinema as well!
