Pan india director SS Rajamouli’s ambition to bring the epic Mahabharata to the cinematic realm has stirred anticipation not only among Telugu audiences but among Indian cinema enthusiasts nationwide. Following his project RRR, he’s gearing up to direct Mahesh Babu, with hints that Mahabharata may follow. However, a recent twist has captivated the Telugu audience’s attention.
Director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, best known for ‘The Kashmir Files,’ unveiled the poster for ‘Parva,’ a three-part Mahabharata produced by his wife, Pallavi Joshi. This unexpected announcement has raised eyebrows in the Telugu film industry, as Bollywood seems to be venturing into its own three part Mahabharata even before Rajamouli.
Despite the uncertainties, some argue that there’s no reason for concern, given the timeless nature of Mahabharata and Ramayana. However, should Rajamouli take it up, it would undoubtedly be on an extravagant scale. The debate lingers on whether he will tackle the project at this juncture. Nevertheless, these mythological tales offer endless possibilities for reinterpretation by filmmakers.
Fans are concerned about Bollywood gaining an early advantage, but others have faith in Rajamouli’s impeccable track record, believing his work will speak for itself. Meanwhile, Rajamouli remains engrossed in finalizing the script for Superstar Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film.
