Over the last couple of months, a lot of news has been surfacing about a possible collaboration between Mahesh Babu and Rajamouli. Putting the rumours to rest, in a recent interview Rajamouli confirmed the news and shared, "There are no rumours. The fact is that I will direct Mahesh Babu and it will be produced by KL Narayana. This will be my next after RRR."

The untitled movie will officially be announced next year and hit the floors in 2022. Needless to say, it will certainly be a treat for everyone to see the biggest Telugu actor and the biggest Telugu director come together for this project.
