There have been rumours about director S S Rajamouli and Amaravathi capital city. It was said that Andhra Pradesh CM Chanadrababu Naidu was not happy with the designs given by Norman Foster. Hence he had requested Rajamouli to see into the matter and give his inputs.
Rajamouli has come out with a clarification. He tweeted, "Various news that I was appointed as a consultant, designer, supervisor etc for Amaravathi are not true…Foster + Partners are a world renowned architectural firm. The designs they submitted were first class in my opinion. @NCBN garu and his team are very happy with it but he wanted a design for the assembly to be much more iconic. All I am doing is interpreting the vision of @NCBN garu to Foster + Partners to quicken the process. Hope this small contribution of mine is some kind of help in that epic project..:)”
