When superstar Rajinikanth sought S S Rajamouli's permission to visit the shooting of his Telugu period-drama Baahubali, the filmmaker felt it was one of the most memorable moments of his life.
"One of my most memorable moments: Rajini sir leaned across and said Rajamouli, I want to come to sets of Baahubali and see your shooting," Rajamouli posted on his Twitter page.
Rajinikanth was in Hyderabad for the Telugu trailer launch of his film Kochadaiiyaan, which is releasing worldwide May 9.
Rajamouli continued, "(It was ) one of the most unforgettable moments (of my life). I gaped at him tongue tied and said something resembling 'Thank you sir',"
Kochadaiiyaan will be dubbed and released in Telugu as Vikrama Simha.
It is touted to be India's first performance capture photo-realistic 3D animated film.
It also features Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, R. Sarath Kumar, Aadi Pinisetty, Nasser and Shobana in important roles.
