A Hollywood Remake for Baahubali?
Telugu director SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus has generated a lot of interest worldwide due to its elaborate scale. There are rumours that the film might be remade in English by a Hollywood studio. “The period war drama is said to be the most expensive film ever made in India, and will release in Tamil and Hindi at the same time. Now, an American studio has shown interest in buying the rights of the movie to make its Hollywood remake,” says an industry source.
The insider further reveals that while Rajamouli is pleased with the offer, nothing is official yet. “It was a pleasant surprise for Rajamouli when he got this offer, but the makers are yet to seal the deal. The studio and the makers are in talks, and want all specifications in place before they sign on the dotted line,” adds the source.
