It’s just a week since ‘Baahubali-2’ got released and speculation is now rife that Rajamouli has decided on his next project.
Reportedly, he has put in place plans to do a social drama in the production of DVV Danayya, who had signed up the star director long ago.
After an epic fantasy, is Rajamouli going to do a humble movie? In a recent interview, his writer-father Vijayendra Prasad said that had he listened to the story line of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, he might have done the movie himself! Which makes one wonder if Rajamouli is now inclined to do a drama with a social commentary as an undercurrent. Moreover, he recently said that he wants to do a film that doesn’t require Vfx, although one is not sure how far he seriously meant it!
Then there is the question of how much the film will cost and in what all languages it will be made. The grapevine has it that, given Rajamouli’s superstardom and his ability to get crowds by his own, his remuneration is now naturally astronomical. Even a non-magnum opus starring a non-superstar might cost Rs. 60-70 Cr, thanks to his fee!
