- Fun Fact: 10 days after starting, Rajamouli wanted to stop the production because the ‘Makkhi’ made by the VFX team didn’t impress him and he had second thoughts on the expected business of the movie.
- Why it Made News: The animated makkhi is the highlight of the movie. It dances like Hrithik Roshan, rides like Ajay Devgn and has powerful dialogues like Rajnikanth.
‘Makkhi’ is the dubbed Hindi version of a highly successful bilingual fantasy film originally made in Telugu and Tamil. It unfolds as a bed-time story told by a father to his daughter. The story revolves around a young man ‘Nani’ who is in love with his neighbour ‘Bindu’. A rich and powerful playboy also has his eyes set on Bindu and in his pursuit, kidnaps and kills Nani who later reincarnates as a housefly and seeks revenge. The movie starts on a love note and later turns into a revenge saga. It was a huge success in South and created enough curiosity and stir in Bollywood too.
