THIS actor has rejected a film written by SS Rajamouli’s father
After the massive success of ‘Baahubali‘ franchise, filmmaker SS Rajamouli’s name needs no introduction. But, his father and veteran scriptwriter K V Vijayendra Prasad is also one name who deserves an applause. He is not only the writer of this magnum opus series, but has also given one blockbuster gem to Bollywood, in the form of Salman Khan-starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘ . Currently, he is one of the most sought after writer across national film industries, without any doubt. However, recently, we came to know of a shocking fact. A popular Bollywood actor walked out of a film written by him! And it’s none other than actor-filmmaker Sunny Deol.
Not many would be aware, but K V Vijayendra Prasad was all set to collaborate with Sunny Deol for a film titled ‘Mera Bharat Mahaan’. But, the celebrated writer has revealed that the project has now been shelved.
While talking to a leading daily, K V Vijayendra Prasad said, “That film with Sunny isn’t happening now; it’s shelved. He wants to concentrate on his son Karan’s debut.” [sic]
There were rumours of this project being helmed by the writer’s son and filmmaker SS Rajamouli himself. But, it turned out to be a false news as he was busy with ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’.
Well, every fan of Sunny Deol knows that he is launching his son Karan Deol in a film titled ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’ which is directed by himself. This would be his third directorial project after ‘Dillagi’ and ‘Ghayal Once Again’.
We can only wish that someday this shelved movie gets revived, with Sunny Deol, Rajamouli and Prasad coming together for the same.
Talking about films, K V Vijayendra Prasad’s next Bollywood film will be Kangana Ranaut-starrer ‘Manikarnika’, a biopic on the historic warrior Rani Lakshmibai. He will be co-writing this script along with lyricist-writer Prasoon Joshi.
This film is slated to release in year 2018.
