Magadheera is sure a special film in the career of Ramcharan and is the biggest hit in the actor’s career. Charan too reminds about the film during public meetings and the biggest surprise here is that the story of Magadheera was not penned for Ramcharan.
SS Rajamouli directed the movie and his father V Vijayendra Prasad penned the story. The news has been revealed by the legendary writer Vijayendra Prasad during the pre-release event of his next directorial Srivalli for which Charan attended as chief guest.
“After the super success of Simhadri, Rajamouli was asked about directing Chiranjeevi and he always wanted to. One fine day, we got a call from Megastar Chiranjeevi garu and we were left extremely delighted and touched with his gesture. It was after a week; we narrated the 100 men fight episode from Magadheera to Megastar. Due to some unexpected reasons, it did not materialize but he loved the episode. Rajamouli wanted the episode to do it with Megastar and we kept it aside” said V Vijayendra Prasad.
“It was later we got an opportunity to work with Ramcharan and we used the episode of Magadheera for Charan. Everyone knows that the rest is history. We started our journey with Ramcharan from Magadheera and he has been carrying the legacy of the legendary actor Megastar Chiranjeevi: revealed the writer of Baahubali.
