Rajamouli is one of the best directors of Indian cinema. He has proved himself repeatedly and gained world-wide recognition for his movies. Production houses around the country are chasing him to provide whatever the budget he demands for his movies after the success of Bahubali series.
Apart from all this, Rajamouli’s dream project didn’t took off yet. Almost every movie fan knows that directing Mahabharata is a dream Project for Rajamouli. The Bahubali director mentioned this during several occasions that he would direct the epic Mahabharatam one day. He even said that he would retire from movies after that project.
However Rajamouli certainly feels that Indian cinema is not upto the mark yet, both technically and financially to bear the burdon of Mahabharata. The budget of the movie might reach so high that only a World-wide release can help it to break even. The present Indian movies make very less Box office collections outside the country compared to hollywood or Chinese movie outings.
However reports are going around that Rajamouli will commence the project in 2025 possibly. All the crucial periods from Mahabharata will be made into a five part movie saga like a Hollywood series. The movies budget will be similar to that of a Hollywood biggie and will feature actors from all the languages of the country. Bollywood superstars like Aamir Khan have already mentioned their interest in the project.
Rajamouli is in plans to gain enough confidence and experience before he takes up the epic story of Mahabharata. The entire nation wants Rajamouli to direct the film and release it world-wide in all languages so that the legendary epic Mahabharata will reach millions worldwide.
