SS Rajamouli contrasts James Bond and Indiana Jones in his next flick starring Mahesh Babu


SS Rajamouli, whose previous three films, Baahubali, Baahubali 2, and RRR, were huge box office hits, has revealed some information regarding his upcoming movie. The director announced that Mahesh Babu will work with him on his upcoming action-adventure film. He also compared the unnamed project to Indiana Jones and James Bond, both of which won Academy Awards.

Only a few weeks following the debut of RRR, SS Rajamouli said that he had begun work on a brand-new venture. Though the script has not been finalised, the director claimed that Mahesh Babu, a “superstar,” will appear in his upcoming action-adventure movie in a statement relayed by industry watcher Manobala Vijayabalan. He added, “We spoke about 2 stories for it,” and the working title of the movie was SSMB29.

While recently attending the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival, Rajamouli discussed the movie. He compared it to old-school Hollywood films with Indian influences, like James Bond and Indiana Jones.

Rajamouli’s father, writer KV Vijayendra, previously revealed to the outlet that he hasn’t yet finished writing the script for the movie, which will be shot against a jungle backdrop: “My next film with Mahesh Babu will be a globe-trotting action adventure. It’s going to be a kind of James Bond or Indiana Jones film with Indian roots.” Given that Mahesh Babu is now filming for a movie with Trivikram Srinivas, he had also stated that they will begin filming for it by the first half of 2023.

Mahesh Babu also discussed his newest endeavour with Rajamouli, calling it a dream come true to collaborate with him. He also mentioned how physically taxing it would be to play the part. It’s a dream come true for him to work with him, he said during a media appearance. “To work with Rajamouli garu is like taking on 25 films at once. It’s going to be physically demanding, but I’m really excited about it. It’s going to be a pan-India film. I hope we break many barriers and take our work to audiences across the country.”
