HYDERABAD (INDIA): Denying rumours of having been appointed a consultant for designing the city of Amaravati, Telugu filmmaker S. S. Rajamouli on Thursday said that he is only assisting the architectural firm in coming up with the design for the Assembly building.
“Various news that I was appointed as a consultant, designer, supervisor, etc. for Amaravathi are not true,” Rajamouli said in a tweet on the micro-blogging site Twitter, and added that he came on board because Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister M Chandrababu Naidu “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,” Rajamouli wrote in another tweet.
London-based design and architecture firm Foster + Partners has been assigned the project of designing Amravati city.
