S.S.Rajamouli, who watched ‘Rudhramadevi’, praised the film, the performances of Anushka, Allu Arjun etc. He said that Gona Gannareddy stole the show and praised him for being instrumental in getting tax exemption for the film.
The ‘Baahubali’ Director wrote on his microblogging page :
“Gona Gannareddy all the way.When the film was almost stalled, bunny’s entry into the cast revived it.Heard that it was again Bunny who was Instrumental in gettin the tax exemption.And he excelled on screen.A hero on screen and also off it.Respect Gannareddy.err..Gona Gannareddy. Sweets, with your screen presence,dedication,commitment,sincerity u are a boon to the film industry.No one else could be rudramadevi..period.Would Have loved more screen time for veerabhadra and rudramadevi. But Rana made his presence felt even with that. For any film maker who Wants to make a period film he is indispensable. Again would have loved more political game from sivadevayya, but guess that is enough for Prakashraj garu to excel. Congratulations to Gunasekhar garu and his team for attempting making releasing and garnering a huge success..” (sic).
On the work front, Rajamouli is expected to commence the shooting of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ in November and the film may release at the end of 2016. The pre-production work of the film is going on currently.
