Baahubali was one of the most successful films in Indian cinema in terms of the larger than life story characters, sets and what not. And looks like we’re about to have more of that visual treat soon enough! Reports in Mid-Day suggests that Baahubali screenwriter, KV Vijayendra Prasad has committed to writing 10 stories as part of a multi-film deal with Eros. Apparently, Mr Prasad has already written a war drama and is looking forward to his son SS Rajamouli directing it. If the script is greenlit, we may just have another magnum opus like Baahubali!

A source revealed that,

It is a Telugu fictional period drama that will be mounted on a grand scale, along the lines of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Vijayendra sir is working on the final draft. He has already bounced the premise off Rajamouli.

But turns out, while the war drama is in consideration, it’s another script, a modern-day thriller written by his father that has caught Rajamouli’s attention. As with everyone, the director wants to try something different than he’s done before.

Though Baahubali was a fantasy drama, Rajamouli feels another period war drama from his stable will appear repetitive. He is keeping an open mind right now. It is only after both scripts are finalised in August that he will take a call. The film is likely to go on floors by mid-2019

Well, either way, one thing is for sure the father-son duo will give us one epic movie for sure, whether a modern-day thriller or a period film is yet to be seen.

I’m so excited about this!
