The entire is waiting with bated breath as to what project SS Rajamouli is going to announce as his next. After all, the man just delivered two of the biggest movies India has ever seen in the form of Baahubali and Baahubali 2. Baahubali 2 is, of course, India’s highest grossing movie of all time at the Indian box office and also the first Indian movie to gross more than Rs 1000 crore at the global box office. There have been various rumours as to what his next project will be. There is the rumoured Mahabharat project or that he will be working on something smaller than the Baahubali series. There were also talks that Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will be starring in his next.
However as per the latest buzz, Rajamouli is planning to either cast Mahesh Babu or Jr NTR in the lead. It is said that he will announce the hero once the scripting work has been complete. South trade analyst Ramesh Bala had tweeted about this, ‘Buzz: Dir @ssrajamouli will work with either @urstrulyMahesh or @tarak9999 in his next project, once the script work is completed..’ Now all we have to wait and watch is which one of these two Telugu superstars is lucky enough to bag that project, as well as what the movie will be about.
Ever since Baahubali made SS Rajamouli such a hotshot director, many of the Bollywood actors are looking forward to a chance to work with him. However, as per an EXCLUSIVE report by our website, SS Rajamouli is trying to avoid taking on Bollywood stars for now in his next. Our source had revealed, “Many Bollywood stars young and seniors have tried to contact the filmmaker, some to congratulate the director and others to impress the man and put in a word of consideration. But Rajamouli has been ignoring all calls and messages. He has switched off and is, in fact, using another number to stay in touch with his near and dear ones.”
