‘RRR’ Helmer Rajamouli Shares Details About New Mahesh Babu Film & We’re Already Excited
S S Rajamouli is counted among the most loved and celebrated filmmakers in the South film industry. After the record-breaking success of the Baahubali franchise, he established himself as a pan-India director.
Earlier this year, he again proved his mettle with RRR. Featuring Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead roles, the film was released in March this year and earned around Rs 1200 crore worldwide in its theatrical run.
Elated with the success of RRR, Rajamouli is now all set to work with superstar Mahesh Babu in his next directorial venture. While fans are looking forward to this collaboration, the director recently revealed some interesting details about the project.
People have been speculating that the director will helm another historic magnum-opus after the success of his last releases, however, nothing of that sort is happening.
Currently, Rajamouli is in Canada for the Toronto International Film Festival. Speaking about the project at the event, he said, “My next film with Mahesh Babu will be a globetrotting action adventure. It’s going to be a kind of James Bond or Indiana Jones film with Indian roots!”
Reportedly, the filmmaker is currently working on the script and is expected to begin workshops with Mahesh Babu in two months. The shooting is likely to begin in May 2023. However, an official announcement is still awaited.
Given its genre, the movie will be packed with many action scenes, drama, and thrills. Besides Mahesh Babu, the makers haven’t revealed the name of the film’s cast and crew.
The Maharshi star is excited to team up with the maverick director. Talking about the project & Rajamouli, he recently said, “It’s a dream come true for me to work with him. Doing one film with Rajamouli Garu is like taking up 25 films at once. It’s going to be physically demanding and I’m really excited about it. It’s going to be a pan-India film. I hope we break many barriers and take our work to audiences across the country.”
On the career front, Mahesh Babu recently started shooting for Trivikram Srinivas’ film SSMB28.
