After the upcoming movie - RRR - India’s top director S. S. Rajamouli has announced his next will be with superstar Mahesh Babu. We have written at length about when this film is going to start and about the subject of the film before everybody else based on the evidence of data at the time. Now, as we have seen some concrete developments regarding their respective current projects, and based on insights shared by our reliable sources, the highly anticipated film will go underway in early 2022 Summer.
But as we had predicted, it’s not going to be SSMB28 (SSMB27 is Sarkaru Vaari Paata). It’s obvious as RRR with Ram Charan and NTR is going to hit the screens in October and it’ll take one more month for the after-release promotions of the film, Rajamouli can be expected to be free only by 2021 November. As it’s a known fact that he takes a bit of gap between his successive films, it’s only in Summer of 2022 that this project will be beginning its principal photography (at the earliest).
Mahesh has been planning to quickly complete a film before joining the sets of Rajamouli's film, as Jakkanna films take a couple of years at least. So, there were suggestions a few months ago either he’ll be part of Anil Ravipudi’s F3 (turned out to be not the case) or another film. As per the recent updates we have received, Mahesh is in discussions with Maharshi director Vamshi Paidipally for a family entertainer. Despite many speculations about their combo after, Sarileru Neekevvaru, now, it seems things have finally fallen in place.
Sarkaru... which is scheduled for a Sankranthi 2022 release will have its shoot completed in early September. After a quick break, Mahesh is going to team up with Vamshi Paidipally for SSMB28. This film will be produced by Dil Raju in combination with Mahesh’s own banner G. Mahesh Babu Entertainment. This film is expected to hit the screens for 2022 Dasara. Appears that the superstar is planning meticulously for his upcoming films.
