Story behind director SS Rajamouli's Padma Award
Baahubali has carved out a niche for itself in Indian Cinema and made SS Rajamouli stand strong alongside Superstars. Awards and accolades are pouring in for the humble director.   
"It is quite a mixed feeling. Very frankly, I haven't created any artistic brilliance that deserves this honour. Awarding Ramoji Rao garu and Rajanikanth garu with Padma Vibhushan is so apt. Their work created a lasting impression that will reflect even for generations to come. It makes me even more humbled to share the occasion with such stalwarts. But can't deny that it also makes me so happy and proud to be with them.", he shared his thought on social media yesterday after the announcements came.
And today, he shared an inside story about how his name was proposed for the award this year, 
"Last year the govt of AP wanted to recommend my name for Padma Sri. 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 Tamil Nadu and settled in Telangana. Happy to be a son of all the states." 
SS Rajamouli has increasingly become a man celebrated by the whole of South India. Hearty congratulations from Behindwoods.
