There are many prominent personalities in the Telugu film industry who are wondering why the Baahubali director Rajamouli has not acknowledged his blue-eyed  boy Prabhas’ Saaho?

Rajamouli is known  to be extremely encouraging even to films and actors who have no direct dealing with him. The latest example being the Sudeep- starrer Pehlwan which Rajamouli has tweeted about. But not a word about Saaho and Prabhas!

 How come? According to an impeccably informed source, Rajamouli, known to be a quiet, uncomplaining kind of filmmaker,  was none too pleased with what Prabhas was trying to do in Saaho which opened to pretty bad reviews.

“The whole point of doing an out-and-out  killer-thriller  antithetical in content, tone and mood to  Baahubali was to prove that it was not only Rajamouli  but also Prabhas who made Baahubali the  historic hit it was. By signing a relatively new  director(Sujeeth Reddy) and working shoulder  to shoulder with the youngster, Prabhas  hoped to recreate the Baahubali hysteria without Rajamouli thereby  proving he was no  flash-in-the-pan superstar. Sadly the effort not only backfired  but it also alienated  Rajamouli,” says  an informed source.

Apparently Rajamouli is none too happy with  Prabhas’ attempts at one-upmanship. It is doubtful you will see the mild-mannered generous director praising  his Baahubali hero, or for that matter signing  him for one of his  forthcoming ventures.

Meanwhile, while Saaho has gotten on to a great start at the box office, it remains to be seen if it can sustain despite the savage reviews.
