On several occasions, SS Rajamouli has revealed that Mahabharata is his dream project. Eega helmer has said, “My long time desire is to make a movie on Mahabharata. Anyone can imagine the scale on which epic movie Mahabharata has to be made and it will be beyond anybody’ imagination. It has been on my mind for quite long but I don’t know yet when it will happen.” Earlier during an interview, when Rajamouli was asked who would be ideal to play the role of Krishna, the director had said, “At present, Jr NTR is the only option for me if I do Mahabharata.”
Currently SS Rajamouli is concentrating on his magnum opus RRR. We have already reported that after wrapping up the shoot of RRR, Rajamouli will team up with Mahesh for his next. However, there are a lot of chances that Baahubali film maker will launch the Mahabharat movie after Mahesh Babu’ project. As the director concentrated on this film even before he finished big budget entertainer RRR, it leaves many speculations that Rajamouli strongly wants to launch Mahabarata in coming years.
Rajamouli has already hinted a long ago that Jr NTR would have a role in the Mahabharata. It means, after RRR, once again Rajamouli will collaborate with Jr NTR after Mahesh Babu’ film.
