Dadasaheb Phalke, known as the “father of Indian cinema,” would be the subject of a biography, director SS Rajamouli has announced and teased.

Made In India, which Nitin Kakkar will direct, will be presented by SS Rajamouli. He described it as a difficult project.
SS Rajamouli is returning with a fresh tale, and this time he will be the driving force behind the Made In India biography of Indian cinema. ‘The father of Indian cinema’ Dadasaheb Phalke is said to be the inspiration for it. The movie will be released in six languages: Marathi, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. It will be directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Nitin Kakkar.

SS Rajamouli shared the announcement video on Tuesday and stated, “When I first heard the narration, it impacted me emotionally like nothing before. Making a biography is difficult in and of itself, but coming up with one that centres on the FATHER OF INDIAN CINEMA is much more difficult. With great pride, we present MADE IN INDIA. Our boys are prepared and ready. The movie will be made by SS Karthikeya of Showing Business and VarunGupta of MaxStudios.

In response to the news, some people also questioned SS Rajamouli about his other movie, Mahabharat. On the social media platform, an X user stated, “We want Mahabharat also.” Another person asked, “Mahabharat when?” Some people also questioned whether the film was really Dadasaheb Phalke’s biography, renowned as the “Father of Indian Cinema.” Others recommended changing the title of the movie to “Made In Bharat” instead.

RRR by SS Rajamouli has received several honours.

This past weekend, RRR’s SS Rajamouli earned SIIMA 2023’s Best Director (Telugu) prize. The movie most recently took home the National Film Award for Best Entertainment-Providing Popular Film. It also received five additional National Film Awards in the categories of Best Special Effects, Best Action Director, Best Male Playback Singer (Kalabhairava), Best Music Direction (MM Keeravani), and Best Choreography.

Over the years, SS Rajamouli has also discussed his ideal Mahabharat project. He recently disclosed that if he does decide to make it, he will do it justice by dividing it into 10 parts. “It would take me a year only to study the versions of Mahabharat that are accessible in the country,” he declared, “if I get to the point of making Mahabharat. I can only guess that it would be a 10-part film for the time being.

“I feel like I’m learning something for Mahabharat with every movie I make,” the director says. So that’s my goal, and every step I take is to get there,” he continued.
