During his recent visit to Japan, Rajamouli revealed a fresh update on SSMB29:

“We have completed the writing, and we are in the pre-production process. Only the hero is confirmed, and his name is Mahesh Babu. He is very handsome. Hopefully, we will expedite the film’s production, and during its release, I will bring him here.”

SSMB 29 has already generated significant buzz, and reports suggest that it will be India’s answer to Indiana Jones. The movie is expected to set new benchmark industry standards as it has a budget of over Rs 1000 crores. This makes it the most expensive film ever made in Indian cinema. Rumor has it that Indonesian actress Chelsea Elizabeth will star alongside Mahesh Babu.
