Rajinikanth-Rajamouli combo will break ‘Avatar’ record: Alphonse

Chennai: Director Alphonse Puthren of “Premam” fame believes a film in the combination of S.S. Rajamouli and superstar Rajinikanth can beat the earnings of James Cameron’s “Avatar” at the box office.

“Hope director S.S. Rajamouli does one film with Superstar Rajinikanth. If it happens, the record of ‘Avatar’ in worldwide box office will be second,” Alphonse wrote on his Facebook page.

Basking in the success of “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion”, Rajamouli had earlier said that if he plans to make a film in Tamil, it has to be with Rajinikanth.

Rajamouli had said it is his long-time desire to work with Rajinikanth, he doesn’t have a script ready yet for their combination to materialize.

Starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan, the film is produced by Arka Media Works.
