Filmmaker SS Rajamouli has shared a response after Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra asked him to do a film based on Indus Valley Civilisation.
Anand took to Twitter, where he re-shared a post on the ancient cities of the civilisation including Harappa, Mohenjo Daro, Dholavira, Lothal, Kalibangan, Banawali, Rakhigarhi, Surkotada, Chanhu Daro, and Rupar among many others.
Anand Mahindra tweeted, "These are amazing illustrations that bring history alive and spark our imagination. Shoutout to @ssrajamouli to consider a film project based on that era that will create global awareness of that ancient civilisation".
Reacting to that, Rajamouli replied: "Yes sir... While shooting for Magadheera in Dholavira, I saw a tree so ancient that It turned into a fossil. Thought of a film on the rise and fall of Indus valley civilization, narrated by that tree!! Visited Pakistan few years later. Tried so hard to visit Mohenjodaro. Sadly, was denied permission."
Reacting to the post, Anand responded, "Delighted to hear this. Go for it!" A fan wrote, "Magadheera one of the finest directorial of @ssrajamouli sir. He will be the right choice for this one." "Just another anecdote that gives you the same high as RRR does. The man the myth the legend SS Rajamouli Sir," read a comment. "It would be great if you focus on historical movies and add beauty to past and show how past people and emotions were to future generations," said a Twitter user.
SS Rajamouli directed Magadheera, a Telugu-language fantasy action film, which released in 2009. The film stars Ram Charan, Srihari, Kajal Aggarwal, and Dev Gill. It is themed on reincarnation and eternal love.
