Ever since the monumental success of “RRR” in March 2022, speculation has been rife regarding the shooting schedule of acclaimed director SS Rajamouli‘s next magnum opus featuring the renowned Mahesh Babu in the lead. Initially scheduled to commence filming in 2023, the eminent filmmaker required additional time to perfect the script and incorporate cutting-edge international technology for the production of this much-anticipated African Jungle Adventure.
Sources close to the development have revealed to Pinkvilla that the highly anticipated SSMB 29 is expected to begin filming in April 2024, following the meticulous efforts of SS Rajamouli and his father, KV Vijayendra Prasad, in finalizing the script for this enthralling cinematic spectacle. The team is reportedly striving to lock the entire screenplay draft by the conclusion of this year, signalling the meticulous attention to detail and creative vision that underpins the project.
In tandem with the scripting process, a dedicated team is actively engaged in conducting comprehensive tech checks to ensure a seamless fusion of Indian storytelling with cutting-edge visual elements.

With a commitment to delivering unparalleled cinematic excellence, the project aims to transcend geographical boundaries and appeal to audiences across the world through its captivating narrative and awe-inspiring visuals, meticulously crafted with the finest technological expertise available.
Emphasizing the depth of the narrative, it has been revealed that Mahesh Babu’s character in the film will embody the essence of Lord Hanuman, aligning with SS Rajamouli’s penchant for intricately weaving elements of Indian Mythology and Epics into his cinematic creations. The upcoming jungle adventure, despite its global scope, will stay rooted in the rich heritage of Indian storytelling, promising an immersive cinematic experience that combines cultural essence with contemporary visual marvels.
