Rajamouli has become famous world wide with the magnanimous block buster 'Bahubali'. That movie has bagged many awards and still continuing to do so. Awards are not new for Rajamouli. Almost for every film of his, he was getting some award or the other. With 'Bahubali' the number has increased even more. But Rajamouli doesn't like to receive awards. Except Padmasri he didn't accept any award till date. Once again it is proved in recent SIIMA awards. He got a SIIMA award for Best Director but he didnt' receive it.
He went to SIIMA along with his family to enjoy the event but he seems to have informed the organizers before itself that he would be attending the event but would not receive the award. In his entire family only Keeravani the award which he got as best music director for 'Bahubali'. Awards are a recognition for the talent and hard work put in by any individual and everyone would be eager to receive awards. On a contradiction, Rajamouli saying I don't want awards, sounds strange isn't it?
