SS Rajamouli’s RRR is still roaring worldwide even after months of its release. People are in awe of the magnum opus starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. Not just Indians even Hollywood is rooting for the film to bag an Oscar. Meanwhile, Canadian filmmaker Mary Harron who is bowled over Rajamouli’s RRR asked the director to make Mahabharata. 

Recently the film become the third highest-grossing Indian movie in Japan. In the past few months, the extravaganza film has been receiving adulation from Hollywood. The recent one to praise the period drama is Canadian filmmaker  Mary Harron. She is known for directing American Psycho, and The Notorious Bettie Page. Impressed by RRR, Harry urged SS Rajamouli to make a movie on Mahabharata.

She told the filmmaker, “I’ve seen the Mahabharata on stage a couple of times in plays and it’s beautiful, but it was a little boring. But then I saw your film and it wasn’t the Mahabharata but it was, and I thought to myself ‘oh this is what it should be, and how it should be made with the spirit of it should be as exciting as that.”

Replying to her, Rajamouli said, “What I have done here is I would say is minuscule, any-size of what Mahabharata can be.” He added that he would love to make a film on Mahabharata but that would take a lot of time.

He went on to add, “I want to make them bigger, bigger and better. And of course, I want to tell Indian stories to the rest of the world. The Mahabharata (the epic Hindu poem) has been my long, long, long dream project, but it will take a long time for me to step into that ocean. Before I step into Mahabharata I want to make maybe three or four films.”

Rajamouli has created some extraordinary blockbusters including Baahubali, Baahubali 2, and RRR. Now are awaiting for another hit from his treasure box. Talking about RRR, it is a fictional tale of two revolutionaries and their fight against British colonialists. The movie is a period drama set in the backdrop of the 1920s. The action film also portrays friendship and their strong bond and love. The role of revolutionaries is played by Ram Charan and Jr. NTR.
