It was known thing that Rajamouli was honoured with Padmasri.He even told that he doesn’t deserve the honour,actually he might get honour earlier only but he only rejected.You can check below what rajamouli said.
“Last year the govt of AP wanted to recommend my name for PadmaSri. I requested them not to citing the same reasons. They insisted. But upon my repeated requests, they dropped my name. This year i was not consulted. I was wondering how this happened when i came to know that i was recommended by the Karnataka govt. I was born in Karnataka, studied in Andhra Pradesh, worked in Tamilnadu and settled in Telangana. Happy to be a son of all the states.”
So it was a surprising thing that he was part of 4 states now and many few know these details.He even received Best director award in Telugu for Baahubali @IIFA Utsavam and also Baahubali received awards in [email protected] Utsavam.
