According to a report in 123 Telugu, the Baahubali director is spending more time in pre-production this time and when that is complete, the shoot will not be delayed. According to the latest update, the Mahesh Babu film will be out in the first quarter of 2027, and plans are being made for the same.  


Rajamouli's next to take five years to release?

Interesting thing is that the time between Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017) and RRR (2022) release was five years. If reports about SSMB29 releasing in 2027 are indeed true, it will put another 5 years between RRR and the former release. MM Keeravani will compose the music for this film, which will be produced by KL Narayana. Mahesh Babu is also reportedly one of the producers of the film.
