News of a highly anticipated collaboration between superstar Mahesh Babu and visionary director SS Rajamouli has sent ripples through the Indian film industry. Tentatively titled SSMB 29, the upcoming project is rumored to be one of the most expensive Indian films ever made, with an estimated budget of a staggering Rs 1000 crore.
This astronomical figure surpasses the budgets of recent blockbusters like Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Rs 250 crore) and Ram Charan & Jr NTR’s RRR (Rs 550 crore), raising excitement and speculation among fans.
Sources suggest SSMB 29 will be an African Jungle adventure film, potentially involving international collaborations for a global reach. However, despite its exotic setting, the film is expected to retain its Indian essence while utilizing cutting-edge technology from around the world.
Adding to the intrigue, whispers point towards Mahesh Babu portraying a character inspired by the Hindu deity Lord Hanuman, aligning with Rajamouli’s penchant for mythological themes. Rumours also hint at a possible two-part franchise spanning four years, though official confirmation remains pending.
With a superstar-director duo, a sky-high budget, and the promise of an epic adventure, SSMB 29 undoubtedly marks a monumental moment for Indian cinema. While details remain shrouded in secrecy, the project’s sheer scale and ambition is sure to keep cinephiles on the edge of their seats as they await further developments.
