Renowned director SS Rajamouli has unveiled his latest cinematic endeavor, a biographical film titled “Made In India,” centered around the life of Dadasaheb Phalke, often regarded as the ‘father of Indian cinema.’ This ambitious project will be directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Nitin Kakkar and is set to captivate audiences in six languages, including Marathi, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.
Sharing the announcement video on X (formerly Twitter), SS Rajamouli expressed his emotional connection to the project, stating, “When I first heard the narration, it moved me emotionally like nothing else. Making a biopic is tough in itself, but conceiving one about the FATHER OF INDIAN CINEMA is even more challenging. Our boys are ready and up for it…:) With immense pride, Presenting MADE IN INDIA…”
The film’s production will be a collaboration between Varun Gupta of MaxStudios and SS Karthikeya of Showing Business.
While fans eagerly anticipate this cinematic tribute to Dadasaheb Phalke, some couldn’t help but inquire about Rajamouli’s much-discussed project, Mahabharata. Many users on the social media platform urged him to provide updates on the epic mythological adaptation.
SS Rajamouli, renowned for his work on “RRR,” has recently received accolades, including the Best Director award (Telugu) at SIIMA 2023. “RRR” also clinched the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment, along with several other prestigious awards.
Addressing his dream project, the adaptation of Mahabharata, Rajamouli shared his vision for its execution. He expressed, “If I get to the point of making Mahabharat, it would take me a year just to read the versions of Mahabharat that are available in the country. At present, I can only assume that it would be a 10-part film.”
He added, “Every film I make, I feel that I’m learning something to ultimately make Mahabharat. So that’s my dream, and every step is towards that.”
