Makkhi the Hindi version of Eega is gearing up for it’s theatrical release. The original version of the film was titled Eega in Telugu and Naan Ee in Tamil, opening stupendously at the box office in South India.Now director SS Rajamouli is entering a fresh market.
We had reported that Makkhi is the talk in Bollywood these days and actor Ajay Devgan himself was so impressed that he even agreed to lend his voice for the film. Now Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan is promoting the movie. Says King Khan, “Makkhi (eega) the fly. Awesomely original & fun film by Rajamouli releasing on 12th October. Must watch with kids.All the best raja & team”, to which actor Siddharth said, “Very cool of SRK to encourage ‘Makkhi’.Calling SS Rajamouli ‘Raja’ is like calling Shah Rukh Khan ‘shah’.It’s just the beginning!” Makkhi heroine Samantha Ruth Prabhu says, “So happy about Makkhi being appreciated.Rajamouli sir made it all happen.So proud to have been a part of it.So so happy for the team.Most deserving and hard working.” However she’s a bit disappointed not being able to promote the film herself, caught up with her shooting schedules. Adds Samantha, “Not fair I have to miss everything related to eega, naan ee and now Makkhi.I want to be with the team and see the look on all their faces.” October 12 it is for Makkhi in Bollywood.
