When the students of IIT Madras asked about his dream project Mahabharata he stunned all by saying that he needs 10 more years of experience to direct the film. He also said that the film will be made in four parts and does not include any star actors in it as the film may take nearly six years to complete the project and no star hero will give him those days. He said that even the popular Hollywood TV Series ‘Game of Thrones’ was made with debutantes to justify his answer.
When one of the students asked him if he copies from Hollywood films, Rajamouli admitted that he copies from Hollywood films but it will not be from the contemporaries. He revealed that his assistant directors used to call him a genius when he narrates them a scene from Hollywood movies as most of them don’t watch English films.
