Both SS Rajamouli as well as Mahesh Babu enjoy a pan-Indian appeal. So when news broke out that they would be teaming up for a film, expectations were big. But this project would take off in 2020 as the director has just started the shooting of his magnum opus, RRR, a multi-starrer that has Ram Charan Teja and Jr NTR in the lead roles. RRR is scheduled for release for Sankaranthi 2020 and the directorâ€™s film with Mahesh Babu will go on to the floors after that.
Meanwhile, there is a buzz that SS Rajamouli and Mahesh Babu are intent on making their Bollywood debuts with this venture. It is being planned as a bilingual and the discussions are on. Though both of them are currently busy with their respective ventures, they are constantly in touch discussing the storyline and other modalities, say sources. The film will have a unique concept and its narration will be different, we hear. The project will be bankrolled by KL Narayana under his banner Sri Durga Arts.
In the meantime, Mahesh Babu will be completing Maharshi, which is being directed by Vamsi Paidapally. This film is scheduled for release in April next year and he will then move over to the Sukumar directorial. This will be wrapped up right on time for the star to hop on to the sets of SS Rajamouliâ€™s film.
By then, SS Rajamouli would be done with RRR. On the technical crew roped in for the project, we hear that MM Keeravani is on board to compose the tunes. Details about the rest of the star cast and crew are under wraps as of now.
