It is often said that an artist is as good as his last work. Baahubali, director SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus, broke all records last year. The film and its dialogues not only have a cult following, but it has made over Rs 1,000 crore at the box office. It has also become a case study in IIM-Ahmedabad. The director, who started working on the Baahubali series back in 2013, has finally moved on.
Recently, it was announced that he will be working with Telugu actors Ram Charan and Junior NTR for his next film. This was the first teaser that was released:

The script will be written by K V Vijayendra Prasad and produced by Danayya DVV. The casting for all the roles is still going on. According to India Today, a budget of Rs 90 crores has been set aside for the film. While Baahubali was a CGI marvel, this film is touted to be a family entertainer with NTR Junior and Ram Charan playing brothers.
For all the Baahubali fans, there are speculations of a Baahubali 3 but the director has not confirmed anything, neither has he ruled it out.
Meanwhile, some reports suggest that he will be making a cameo in one of his assistants, Karuna Kumar’s film.
