Mumbai: Renowned Telugu director SS Rajamouli has expressed his desire to make a Bollywood film with superstar Aamir Khan. The Eega helmer, who has done several hit masala entertainers in Telugu, does not want to continue with the same in Bollywood. Rather he wants to make a historical or a mythological movie.
Talking to PTI, SS Rajamouli said that he loved all Aamir's films. The director said, "I love all actors from here. But I love Aamir Khan the most. I adore him and treat him as a guru. I like the way he makes films, the way he promotes them. If there is a chance, I would jump to direct him because I would learn so much from him."
Rajamouli said, "I would love to do a Bollywood film. I would like to make a historical or a mythological movie. But again when time will come I don't know what I will do." He added, "Our mythology and history have strong and powerful content. Like the story between Rana Pratap and Akbar, Shivaji and Aurangzeb. It takes a lot of effort to bring that on screen. But I would love to take that challenge."
Talking further about Aamir Khan, Rajamouli said, "That depends on the story, even though I would love to work with him. I cannot make a story that would not suit him and go ask him." On when he sees his Hindi film debut happening, the director said, "I don't know. I am still in the planning stages. I am planning it to happen in next two years time."
SS Rajamouli does not want to continue to make 'masala' films in Hindi. He said, "I don't see myself making one ('masala' movie in Bollywood). I don't want to go back to mass masala films. I have been doing that from the beginning of my career. I see potential in them. It is just that I moved to universally appealing subjects, I love making films with large canvas like Magadheera (historical romance)."
His hit Telugu movies like Vikramarkudu and Maryada Ramanna have already remade in Hindi as Rowdy Rathore and Son of Sardaar, which have crossed Rs 100 crore marks at the Indian Box Office. Now, Rajamouli's dream is to make epic Mahabharat's presentation on big screen. "For 'Mahabharata', I need a lot more experience. May be it would take eight or nine years to start the project," he said.
