SS Rajamouli has been busy ahead of Sunday's Oscars event in the US. Meanwhile, in India, he has been given a new responsibility by the Election Commission.
The celebrated director has been appointed as a district icon by Karnataka's Chief Electoral Officer months ahead of the Karnataka Assembly elections. As a district icon of Raichur district, where he was born, the 'Baahubali' maker has to spread awareness among voters by highlighting the importance of voting. He will be releasing an Ad or two.
In the past, Rajamouli has supported Jayaprakash Narayan of Lok Satta. Besides that, he has stayed away from politics. The awareness campaign is politically neutral.
