V Vijayendra Prasad is one of the top writers of Indian cinema. His contribution for his son SS Rajamouli’s films has been immense and he himself penned the scripts of all the films directed by SS Rajamouli. Bhajrangi Bhaijaan was a sensation in Bollywood last year and Vijayendra Prasad penned the script. He even penned the screenplay for Vijay’s recent blockbuster Mersal. However the star writer failed badly when it came to direction.

Vijayendra Prasad tested his luck thrice as a director and all the films left the makers in hefty losses. Now Vijayendra Prasad decided to concentrate completely as a writer and he decided not to direct films in future. “It is better to do my job as a writer. I realized that I am not a good director after three films. Will concentrate completely on writing from now” revealed Vijayendra Prasad during a recent interview. Vijayendra Prasad is currently working on Rajamouli’s next project which will start rolling early next year.

Master craftsman SS Rajamouli’s 2012 release ‘Eega’ impressed audience and critics alike for its impressive technical bravura and striking visual effects. The film emerged as a smash hit at the box office and was later dubbed into many foreign languages as well. Last year, Rajamouli revealed that he is keen on working for its sequel after wrapping up Baahubali series. Also, it was speculated that Salmaan Khan is likely to play the lead role in the sequel.

Vijayendra Prasad, story writer and Rajamouli’s father, has now revealed that they have scrapped the idea of working on Eega sequel and decided to release Eega 2 as a TV series in Hindi. Speaking to national media, the ace writer confirmed that Salmaan Khan was supposed to play the lead role, but the project has been shelved as they are planning a TV series with the sequel.

Vijayendra Prasad, who penned script for Salmaan Khan’s Bhajrangi Bhaijaan, stated that he will reveal more details about the TV series very soon.
