Akshay Kumar has already worked with a few South Indian directors like Priyadarshan, Prabhu Deva and AR Murugadoss. He has also acted in Hindi remake of South Indian movie Vikramarkudu. The Bollywood actor, who was recently in the city to promote his latest outing Khiladi 786, could not stop praising the filmmakers down South.
Addressing a publicity event of Khiladi 786, Akshay Kumar said that he had worked with South Indian directors in half of his films. They are perfectionists and can complete a film in just 60 to 65 days. Many budding stars act in a few South films to brush up their skills. Meanwhile, he added, "I would like to work with Rajamouli."
However, after the release of super-hit movie Eega, SS Rajamouli has gone busy with the scripting work for his next untitled movie, which will star Rebel Star Prabhas in the lead. The movie is touted to be his next big budget project after Eega and it is likely to release in the last quarter of 2013.
Interestingly, SS Rajamouli has recently expressed his wish to work in a Bollywood project. But, he has said that he does not want to work on another masala entertainer in Hindi. Rather he would like to work on a historical or mythological film. Now with Akshay Kumar ready to work with him, it should be seen whether Rajamouli will come forward to direct him.
