South filmmaker SS Rajamouli says he is getting a lot of offers from Bollywood post his blockbuster “Baahubali: The Beginning”.
The film starred Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah and Anushka Shetty in lead roles. The Hindi dubbed version of the Tamil-Telugu historical-fiction drama was presented by Karan Johar.
Rajamouli, currently working on the second instalment of the film, says he cannot take any offer unless the project is complete. “Yes I am getting a lot of film offers from Bollywood but all of them know I won’t be available until Baahubali is complete. I cannot consider any offer as of now. But I would love to direct a Bollywood film someday,” Rajamouli told PTI.
When asked if he will direct a film for Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, he said, “It is a possibility, right. You never know.”
There were reports that the second instalment, ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’, was getting delayed. The director, however, says the film is on track. “It’s not a ‘sequel’ sequel, it’s a continuation story. It’s on track. We have already started shooting, and have finished two schedules. The last schedule we finished ahead of time, something which never happened before. We are very good with it.”
Rajamouli plans to come up with a third part of the film and make ‘Baahubali’ a franchise. “Yes there will be a continuation in the third instalment… There is a big story of Baahubali so it will continue. It is a big franchise and will be there for a long time.”
