Meanwhile, Rajamouli has been busy with SSMB29. Although little is known about the film, at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada recently, the filmmaker called the project a “globetrotting adventure.” He added that currently he is working on the script of the film and will start the workshop in 2 months with Mahesh Babu. Talking about the film, S S Rajamouli said, “My next film with Mahesh Babu will be a globetrotting action adventure. It’s going to be a kind of James Bond or Indiana Jones film with Indian roots!”
Mahesh Babu, who was also present at Toronto International Film Festival, talked about working with S S Rajamouli. “It’s a dream come true for me to work with him. Doing one film with Rajamouli Garu is like taking up 25 films at once. It’s going to be physically demanding and 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,” he said.
