The recent news that really made waves in social media is that Universal Star Mohanlal is acting in the SS Rajamouli project named Garuda which will be made using 1000 crores as per reports. Even though both Mohanlal and SS Rajamouli not confirmed it the news is still doing its round with some updates as well. The new upadtes says that Mohanlal is booked for 6 months for the film with 15 crore remuneration and he will essay the role of bheema in the film which is set in the background of Mahabharatha. The filming will begin in 2017 and release will be in 2019 as well.
But there was once a project SS Rajamouli planned with Mohanlal but later dropped due to unknown reasons. It was also made a news some time back us. But nobody believed it. But it now truth comes out and it was indeed a true news. The art director of Baahubali Manu Jagat had posted the sketches he and Sabu Cyril made for that Mohanlal- SS Rajamouli dropped project through his Facebook page.
It was in the year 2002 that the project was planned and Manu Jagat with Sabu Cyril had made some sketches for the film as well. But later when the film is dropped due to some unknown reasons Sabu Cyril had used that sketch for a song sequence in the Priyadarshan directorial flick named Kilichundan Mambazham. In that song Mohanlal performed as a warrior. SS Rajamouli also planned a film related with story of a warrior in which Mohanlal playing the lead role. But that does not materialize then because unlike this time huge budget films are very rare and more risky in India that time.
Manu Jagat was working as an assistant of Sabu Cyril at that time. Now there is a hope that SS Rajamouli will be teamed up with Mohanlal in future to fulfill his dream to work with this legend in Indian cinema. He once said that Mohanlal is his favourite actor and he is a huge fan of Mohanlal’s skills as an actor. He also said that he definitely want to do a film with him one day.
