Filmmaker SS Rajamouli has captivated the audience so far by making wonders from behind the cameras as a director, but looks like he is now set to stun the audience by facing the camera in the upcoming magnum opus, Kalki 2898 AD. The film is reportedly set to bring the dynamic duo of Rajamouli and Prabhas together once again, after their blockbuster collaborations, Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion.
Last time Prabhas and Rajamouli had joined hands, they had created a storm at the box office. Both the films of the Baahubali franchise wrecked havoc across the country and are among the top 10 highest-grossing films in the history of Indian cinema.
Rajamouli is currently basking in the mammoth success of his last directorial, RRR, which went on to win an Oscar, among tens of other achievements.
SS Rajamouli to star in Kalki 2898 AD?
If recent reports are to be believed, Rajamouli is set to appear in a special cameo in Kalki 2898 AD, and his role will be an important one in the film's narrative.
Neither the makers of Kalki 2898 AD, nor Rajamouli himself, have shared an official statement on the rumours yet, but if the reports are indeed true, then it will be one of the biggest casting coups in today's times.
It is to be noted that Rajamouli also had a cameo in his own directorial, Baahubali: The Beginning, which starred Prabhas in the titular role.kalki
