The shooting of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘RRR’ does not seem to resume at anytime soon due to relentless rise in Coronavirus cases in Hyderabad. In a recent interview, SS Rajamouli — who is known for directing historical film Baahubali— has opened up about his next project featuring Telugu superstar, Mahesh Babu.
According to the latest news, SS Rajamouli has decided to complete the scripting process for Mahesh Babu film now as he has enough time to do so.
Revealing the reason why he is in quite hurry for the script of his next project when he still has a mega budget film ‘RRR’ is yet to hit the theaters, he said that the unexpected delays in the shoot of multi-starrer film RRR made him realize that it is always not wise to put a film in production for years.
Usually, Rajamouli takes two to three years to complete each film which is increasing not only budget but also burden on the lead actors.
RRR actor Jr NTR and Ram Charan’s plans have gone out of control due to the delay in RRR production. In addition, the outbreak of Coronavirus has completely changed the movie business. It is not certain whether people will come to Cinema halls even when the normalcy gets restored across the country post Coronavirus.
That’s the reason why SS Rajamouli is considering to wrap Mahesh Babu’s film as quickly as possible. Two to three months after the release of RRR, Rajamouli would begin the regular shoot of Mahesh Babu’s film. So, he is likely to finish the entire script during this free time.
Notably, Mahesh Babu and Rajamouli are collaborating for the first time. The film will be produced by KL Narayana, who is returning to film production after 20 years.
