After the stupendous success of Baahubali, Rajamouli has become the most sought after director not just in Tollywood but in the entire Indian film industry. While the likes of Karan Johar and other Bollywood biggies were ready to spend whatever the amount he needed on his next production venture, Rajamouli instead chose to honor his earlier commitments and will reportedly direct a film for DVV Danayya. However, the hero of this highly anticipated project hasn’t been finalized yet, since the ace director hasn’t yet made his mind on the subject.
Meanwhile, the director has been flooded with phone calls and messages, especially from Bollywood stars. A report in BollywoodLife claimed that several Bollywood stars have tried to contact the filmmaker, most likely to discuss for a possible collaboration but Rajamouli has been ignoring all such calls and messages. ‘In order to evade the Bollywood stars, he got rid of the previous phone number and started using another number to stay in touch with his closed ones,’ added the report.
It is understandable that B-town heroes are hounding Rajamouli to bag his next project considering that the entire nation is waiting for it. With all eyes on the project, whoever bags it, is most likely to benefit from the hype around it. Bogged down by innumerable proposals, Rajamouli has literally gone underground and become unreachable to Bollywood stars ever since ‘Baahubali 2’ happened.
