After his magnum opus Baahubali, we all know that Rajamouli is aiming for his dream project Mahabharata soon. The latest news that it will be an epic trilogy that will most likely hit the floors in 2018 after the scripting of the story.
However, the director explains that with great stories come great responsibilities. The film is said to be made within a span of five to six years that would need actors dedicating a huge amount of time for the project. To be made on a budget of Rs 400 crore, this project is also said to have grand visuals at par with that of Baahubali.
SS Rajamouli, who is gearing up for the much awaited Bahubali – The Conclusion, is known for his larger than life films. Epic dramas are his forte and his last film Bahubali – The Beginning is an example of how bilinguals can take over the market with good content. Now the filmmaker is all set to fulfill one of his wishes of recreating one of the most renowned epic tales – The Mahabharata.
This epic tale of Mahabharata that follows a journey of honour, love, deceit, family will now be presented in a much larger scale. Talking about his dream of making a film like that, Rajamouli revealed that he wants to use virtual reality along with modern graphics to recreate Mahabharata on the big screen.
The film, according to him, will be a multi-lingual and will be shot in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi for a pan India release. As far as the casting is concerned, SS Rajamouli maintained that he wants a blend of Bollywood as well as South actors for the film.
On the other hand, his forthcoming release of 2017, Bahubali – The Conclusion is supposedly one of the most expensive films made at a whopping budget. It stars Prabhas, Tamannaah Bhatia, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty among others and is slated to release on April 14.
