"Baahubali" director SS Rajamouli has opened up on working with Superstar Rajinikanth and casting Malayalam superstar Mohanlal for his most-talked about project "Garuda".
SS Rajamouli was interacting with students at a college in Chennai this weekend, when he spoke about his projects with Rajinikanth and Mohanlal. A lot has been written and spoken about his films with these Tamil and Malayalam superstars. During the interaction, the "Baahubali" helmer admitted that he would love to work with both the actors.
Talking about "Garuda", SS Rajamouli said he is planning to do the movie and would love to work with Mohanlal. But he declined to divulge more details of the project.
"Garuda is there in my mind. But sorry, I cannot reveal any details about it now. Mohanlal is one of the fantastic actors in the country. I would love to work with him. But, I haven't even developed the script of Garuda yet and I can't think about the cast at this moment," The Quint quoted Rajamouli as saying during his interaction with the students.
On different occasions, both Rajinikanth and SS Rajamouli have expressed their desire to work with each other. But they are yet to finalise a project and make an official announcement about it. During interaction, SS Rajamouli said if he does a movie with the dialogue king, he would make sure he sets a new record.
"You ask this question to any director in the South Indian film industry and their answer will be the same. I don't know what kind of role I would offer Rajinikanth, but if at all I make a film with him, I will make sure that no one from the audience listens to the dialogues on screen for at least ten days. They should hear only hoots and whistles," Rajamouli said when asked about his wish to work with Rajini.
