Ace director SS Rajamouli, who has been busy promoting "Baahubali" these days, has revealed that he has already signed a film with superstar Mahesh Babu and he will start working on it after the release of his magnum opus.

Rajamouli confirmed his project with Mahesh Babu in an interview to IndiaGlitz. "Why not? We have already signed together. I am directing Mahesh Babu in a film, which will be produced by KL Narayana," he replied to film critic Sreedhar Pillai when the latter asked him whether he will ever sign a film with Mahesh.

"I announced the movie long back, but I am waiting to complete my current project. That's why my project with Mahesh Babu is delayed. Of course, we will work together. I will start working on his film after the release of Baahubali," Rajamouli added.

The filmmaker has worked with some popular Tollywood heroes, like Nagarjuna, Ravi Teja, Junior NTR, Ram Charan Teja, Prabhas, Nithiin, Nani and Sunil in his previous films, which have become superhit at the box office. Besides enhancing these actors' fan base, the director himself has become a superstar.

But Rajamouli has not worked with the top actors of Tollywood -- Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan -- whose fans have been desperately waiting for the director to work with their favourite stars. Many of them have made such requests to him on Twitter and Facebook.

In fact, the director was once baffled by the comment of his follower on Twitter. On 19 May, 2014, Rajamouli tweeted: "If the audience are expecting something, Fulfil it.. But If they predict something, Surprise them.."

His quick-witted follower named Saikrishna replied, "@@ssrajamouli xpcting a film vth MAHESH pls fulfill it . . nd predicting a film vth PK jst surprise us . :))" :) (sic)"

However, Rajamouli's announcement has thrilled both his as well as Mahesh Babu's fans, who are eager to know more about the project. Prince has huge fan following across the globe and his film with Rajamouli will have bigger hype than "Baahubali", opine the experts from the industry.
