SS Rajamouli dismisses reports of making Mahabharata

After the mammoth success of ‘Baahubali 2′, rumours of SS Rajamouli converting Mahabharata into a film broke out. This happened after the director said it was his dream to make a film on the epic some day. However, he denies that anything like that is in the pipeline right now.

“I am not making Mahabharata. I just said that my dream is to make Mahabharata but it is a long time to get to that,” Rajamouli said.

“I haven’t started anything. I am just taking a break. It will be sometime that I will be starting to work on my next project,” he added. (Also Read: SS Rajamouli and Sridevi bury the hatchet, team up for a film?)

‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ came out in 2015 and was a smashing hit. But ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ which released this year, took the box office by storm that we haven’t witnessed before. The film became an all-time blockbuster and broke every possible record at the Indian box office. With this, many hoped for a third edition of the franchise.

But the director has no similar plans.

“We started the film with a fantastic story, and we finished it with these two films. So, there is no further story. I know we have a fantastic market and I know I will make hundreds of crore (with the franchise) but that wouldn’t be honest filmmaking,” he said.

We will wait till he gets down to making the next masterpiece.
