Alia Bhatt is now enjoying the success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai, which is on its way to breaking the Rs 100 crore mark. She will soon be seen in SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which stars Jr. NTR and Ram Charan and is directed by SS Rajamouli. There is also talk of her doing director Kortala Siva’s next with Jr. NTR, but due to logistical issues, the paperwork is still pending.

It has now been learned that Alia Bhatt is in talks to join another another big-budget Pan-India project. Alia is in talks with SS Rajamouli for his upcoming jungle adventure starring Mahesh Babu.

“Over the last few months, SS Rajamouli and his father, KV Vijayendra Prasad, have been working on the screenplay of their next collaboration with Mahesh in the lead. They have developed several characters through this period, feel that Alia fits the bill to play the female lead. The duo also believes that the young actress will make a solid pairing with Mahesh,” revealed a source close to the development told Pinkvilla.

The source also informs that much like RRR, the idea is to cast actors from across industries to give the film a Pan India appeal. “The talks are on and if everything goes as planned, Alia will team up with Mahesh for the first time ever. The dates, monetary scheme of things and the character traits are being discussed at the moment. Unlike RRR, Alia will be having a bigger role in this African jungle adventure,” the source added.

The film is planned to start shooting in the middle of next year, and Mahesh and Alia are expected to finish all of their current commitments by then. It is planned to be shot in real jungles to get the scale correct, and Rajamouli and his team are likely to go on a recce by the middle of this year, once the events surrounding RRR have passed them by. “Of course, there will be a lot of VFX too in the narrative. But the idea is to shoot at real locations as well to get the vibe of jungles right,” the source signed off.
