VK Vijayendra Prasad, a screenwriter, was one of the four South Indian icons nominated for the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.



On Wednesday, KV Vijayendra Prasad, one of the nation's top screenwriters and filmmakers, was nominated for the Rajya Sabha alongside three other individuals in what is thought to be the ruling BJP's major effort to recognize important persons from south India. Celebrity athlete PT Usha, music legend Ilaiyaraaja, and Veerendra Heggade, the leader of the well-known Dharmasthala temple in Karnataka, are among the other nominees.

VK Vijayendra Prasad, an Andhra Pradesh native, is most known for his work on blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the Baahubali series, and RRR. It was a remarkable accomplishment that some of the scripts he wrote transcended regional limits and the movies went on to become national blockbusters. Through the medium of film, he has played a significant role in fostering nationalistic sentiment and cultural pride. One of the most well-known film filmmakers in the nation is SS Rajamouli, his son.


In his message of congratulations, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Prasad, noting that he has been involved in the arts for many years and that his work has gained recognition around the world while showcasing India's illustrious culture.

His other works include Mersal, Magadheera, and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. He directed the Telugu movie Rajanna in 2011, which took home the Nandi Award for Best Feature. Aparaajitha Ayodhya and Sita: The Incarnation are two of his upcoming books.


He was questioned about his desire to direct a Hollywood film in a 2017 HT interview. Of course, if given the chance, I would adore working on a Hollywood movie. He had claimed that it would be a tremendous learning experience.

In an interview with India Today, he described his writing approach, saying, "Every time I start creating a film, I faithfully watch Sholay once, just to warm myself up, just [as] people go to Siddhivinayak temple or Sai Baba's temple." He claims that it's one of the few movies he can see in one sitting, adding: "I am susceptible. I get drowsy as soon as I start watching a movie."


Regarding the cross-border drama Bajrangi Bhaijaan's influence, he claimed that Chiranjeevi's 1987 Telugu film Pasivadi Pranam served as a model. The tale of a Pakistani couple who traveled to India for their daughter's heart surgery was another thing he had learned.
