According to Srikkanth, ‘I am a Telugu man. I love my culture. I would like a Telugu director like SS Rajamouli to direct the film. At present, Indian historical films are dominated by Tollywood. If Rajamouli is the director, then who will be chosen as the hero in the film, I also leave it to him.
When the Indian team became the Thomas Cup champion, there was an influx of congratulations. Film personalities including Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and SS Rajamouli among others congratulated the history-making Indian men’s badminton team for their performance. World Championships medalists Lakshya Sen and Kidambi Srikanth, besides world number eight pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, played in Bangkok to register a memorable victory, beating 14-time champions Indonesia in the final.
