Feelers have come out that Rajamouli will start filming with Mahesh Babu from January 2023. It will then be 10 months after the release of RRR.
So Rajamouli gets enough time to breathe.
Rajamouli takes plenty of time before going to the sets and works from the hero’s appearance, the makeover, the discussions and the pre-production.
That’s why Rajamouli asked Mahesh Babu to be available from January.
But looking at the current situation, Mahesh Babu doesn’t seem to find time until March-April.
Trivikram has yet to start his film with him. According to schedule, the shoots should start from the 15th of this month.
But the producer strike continues. Many assume that the strike will be called off before the 10th of this month.
Producers’ Guild is also working to call off the strike as soon as possible and holds ongoing meetings with various crafts.
Later, the Filmkamer has to approve the agreements and only then can the strike be called off. This is a lengthy process as it concerns matters pertaining to VPF.
Trivikram needs at least 6-7 months to complete his work at Mahesh Babu. Mahesh can therefore only be available for Rajamouli from the summer of 2023 if all goes well.
