Superstars doing a cameo in films add a bit of sizzle to it. But it is very rare for a director to do so. Though we have had filmmakers like Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai, making appearances in their films. But SS Rajamouli of Baahubali fame took the cameo to new height. He was not seen for a split second in his magnum opus but had a small role in it.
SS Rajamouli who has earned global fame with his ‘Baahubali’ franchise played a small but an interesting character in the first instalment of the franchise. He makes his appearance in a scene where Baahubali (Prabhas) and Bhallala Deva (Rana Daggubati) venture into a hub of smugglers, pirates, and traders in search of one of their men, who had stolen the secrets to the kingdom of Mahishmati and sold it to the Kalakeya clan. Rajamouli appeared as the bar-tender who serves Baahubali.

Unfortunately, he had confirmed that he won’t be making an appearance in the sequel. We would have loved to see him.
