Prime Minister Narendra Modi a while ago announced that VVijayendra Prasad, the writer of Baahubali and Roudram Ranam Rudhiram, has been nominated to the Rajya Sabha. He is director SS Rajamouli's father.
Modi in his tweet said that, over decades, Prasad's works have showcased India's glorious culture and have made a mark globally.
Legendary music director Ilaiyaraja too has received a nomination. "The creative genius of Ilaiyaraaja Ji has enthralled people across generations. His works beautifully reflect many emotions. What is equally inspiring is his life journey- he rose from a humble background and achieved so much," Modi tweeted.
