SS Rajamouli had past declared that Baahubali: The Conclusion would be an end to the series of Baahubali as far as the films are concerned. And if reports are to be believed, “Baahubali” now has a book series, and if all goes well, the trilogy will be adapted to small screen.

“The plan is to make the book into a TV series… not the daily soaps that you get to see. The plan is to make a seasonal show with 10 to 13 episodes,” Rajamouli told reporters at the launch of “The Rise of Sivagami”, a prequel to the blockbuster “Baahubali”, here on Friday.

SS Rajamouli also promised his audience an unforgettable cinematic experience. However, he is adamant that he wouldn’t present his film in 3D form. He said, “I hate 3D. Technically, it gives you depth but doesn’t capture the scale. It brings the scale down. 2D enhances the scale. Since the film is larger than life, I did not wanted to compromise on anything.”

Anand Neelakantan, who has penned “The Rise of Sivagami”, is known for writing fiction books based on the Indian epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. What about making a film on one of the books?

“His character of Ravana is fantastic. It is very inspirational. But I don’t know if I will make a film on it. Apart from the books, he told me one story which is yet to be put on paper. Very intriguing and interesting story. I was quite fascinated by it. So maybe. I want to make it, but let’s see,” the director replied to a question asked by IANS.

What’s the subject of that “intriguing story”? “I can’t reveal that now,” he said.

There were multiple reports on him helming “Garuda” or a film based on Mahabharata. So, what’s his next project?

“I am planning a nice family entertainer called holiday in Bhutan,” he said.
