It wouldn’t be wrong to say that filmmaker SS Rajamouli is in the best phase of his career. The filmmaker has the world’s attention with RRR. Not only is the film winning over the West with its stellar storytelling and performance but it is also winning several awards, including the most recent Best Foreign Language Film award at the Critics Choice Awards.

Amid this, News18 has exclusively learned that the filmmaker, who is widely celebrated all over the world, will soon have a film paying homage to him and his achievements. Reportedly, the documentary will be backed by Raghav Khanna’s newly-formed production company, Riverland Entertainment.

A source tells us, “SS Rajamouli, in many ways, has put India on the global map. His films have blurred linguistic and regional borders within the country and have proved to be true-blue pan-Indian films. A documentary, which pays an ode to the revered filmmaker and traces his journey and the laurels that he has brought to our film industry, is currently in the making.”

The source further reveals that the shoot for the documentary kick-started recently. “The project went on floors this week in Hyderabad. Since Rajamouli already has prior professional commitments and has a chock-o-block schedule, the makers won’t be able to complete the shoot on a start-to-finish basis. They will be flying with and accompanying him over the next few months and chronicling his story, which will give his fans and audience a closer glimpse of his life,” says the source.

On a related note, Rajamouli, who began his career with the Telugu film Student No 1 in 2001, will next be working on an untitled jungle adventure film with actor Mahesh Babu. Divulging details about it, he said at the Toronto International Film Festival 2022, “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.” Reportedly, Rajamouli will be filming it in Telugu and English simultaneously and it will be dubbed into other languages eventually.
