Though he does have strong parts for the women in his films, the Baahubali director Rajamouli continues to court macho compulsions through his cinema. While Magadheera pitched Ram Charan Teja against Dev Gill, the historic Baahubali was a battle of supremacy between Prabhas and Rana Daggubatti.
Rajamouli’s next, according to sources, will again be a battle to the bloodied finish between the two heroes Ram Charan Teja and Junior NTR.“But this time it won’t be a costume drama,” informs a source. “The conflict is set in contemporary times, and Teja and NTR Jr will be pitched against one another in a battle-royale that will take them through various countries. This won’t a film as expensive as Baahubali, but it will have production values of the highest order, and it will be in Telugu, not Hindi,” says an informed source.
Rajmouli has only this to say about his new project: “All I can tell you right now is that I am working on a project. I don’t want to do a costume drama or a period film next. It will be film set in contemporary times this time. But again it will hopefully be as much fun to watch as Baahubali, and yes, I am making it in Telugu.”
Wow! Another film from the Rajamouli’s camp to look forward to!
