Baahubali filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli has refuted reports of working on another magnum opus based on the story of Mahabharata. He said that he is not working on anything right now and currently enjoying his break.
"I am not making Mahabharata. I just said that my dream is to make Mahabharata but it is a long time to get to that," said Rajamouli. "I haven't started anything. I am just taking a break. It will be sometime that I will be starting to work on my next project," he added.
Rajamouli attained global acclaim by creating "Baahubali" - which went on to become India's biggest blockbuster with worldwide earnings of over Rs 900 crore. Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, the film's story is about the battle for the ownership of an ancient kingdom between two brothers. It also featured Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
The first part "Baahubali: The Beginning" came out in 2015 and the second "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion", which will have its TV premiere on Sony MAX on October 8, was released earlier this year. Asked about any plans to come out with another part, Rajamouli said at the moment there is no "further" story to tell.
Rajamouli has earlier said that he loves mythological stories as it deals with fantasy. Talkinga bout the characters in Mahabharata, the filmmaker said that he in in awe of Karna's character.
