Telugu cinema’s market expansion and pan-Indian reach have seen a notable uptick. With worldwide recognition and a devoted fan base, Telugu cinema has achieved unprecedented success thanks to blockbuster hits like Baahubali and Pushpa.

The demand for high-quality content has led to an increase in production costs, which has forced Telugu cinema to expand and venture into international film productions, generating never-before-seen excitement and anticipation among viewers worldwide.

Let’s delve into the exciting world of three mega-scale pan-world movies that are set to captivate audiences with their grandeur, star-studded casts, and ambitious storytelling. And guess what? They are all from Hyderabad — Telugu film industry.

Future Tollywood Pictures 2024

Mahesh Babu SSMB 29

Mastermind: SS Rajamouli

Budget: More than Rs. 1000 crore is anticipated.

Director S. S. Rajamouli shot to prominence in India after Baahubali’s enormous box office success, earning over a billion dollars. The epic saga won over viewers all around the country with its majesty and engrossing storytelling.

Rajamouli, however, didn’t stop there. In his subsequent film, RRR, he expanded upon the idea of a pan-global picture. The film struck a chord with viewers everywhere, cutting over national boundaries. Their powerful song “Naatu Naatu,” which won the Oscar for “Original Song,” took India by storm and brought glory to the nation.

And now, as Rajamouli sets out on a new adventure, the anticipation builds to a fever pitch. He teams up with the charismatic Mahesh Babu for the first time ever on an upcoming global adventure project that is slated to be called SSMB29.

With a budget exceeding Rs 1000 crores, SSMB29 is poised to create new benchmarks for the industry, being the most expensive film ever produced in Indian cinema history. Mahesh recently went to Germany to undergo physical and psychological changes in preparation for his role.

Mahesh Babu’s co-star in the upcoming movie is reportedly to be Indonesian actress Chelsea Elizabeth. Produced by KL Narayana, the film’s production is scheduled to start in June.

The Rule in Allu Arjun’s Pushpa II

Supervisor: Sukumar

Budget: Estimated to be over Rs. 1000 crore.

With its 2021 release, Pushpa changed the non-Rajamouli (SSR) market and propelled its participants into the international arena. With a box office receipt of more than Rs. 400 crores, Sukumar’s Telugu-language action thriller was well-received by viewers within and outside of India.

Excitement is high for Pushpa 2: The Rule, one of the most anticipated movies of 2024 starring Allu Arjun. It is reportedly going to be “bigger and grander.” Presently, the film is in its final stages of production, with Rashmika Mandanna playing the lead female character.

Pushpa 2, starring Allu Arjun, is making waves with its enormous budget of more than Rs 500 crore. It is reportedly one of India’s highest-budget motion pictures. The movie is getting ready for its August 15, 2024, wide release. The fact that Allu Arjun recently traveled to Berlin to represent Indian cinema at the esteemed Berlin Film Festival 2024 only served to heighten the anticipation. The euphoria of “Pushpa” on the big screen was also felt by the audience.

Prabhas’ Kalki 2898 AD

Director: Nag Ashwin

Budget: Estimated to be over Rs. 600 crore

Now that Kalki 2898 AD arrives on the scene, the suspense grows. This epic mythological-science fiction dystopian film, directed by Nag Ashwin, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Deepika Padukone, and Disha Patani among its ensemble cast. However, Prabhas takes the lead in this. With a budget of an astounding more than Rs. 600 crore, the movie even outspends movies like Baahubali and Brahmastra. Because of Baahubali, Prabhas wants to conquer not just India but the entire world.

A completely new plot that combines mythology and science fiction is promised in Kalki 2898 AD. Fans are excitedly awaiting this cinematic extravaganza, with the first trailer slated for release soon. The Rebel Star, Prabhas, is ready to push the limits of Indian film and make a lasting impression on the world screen. The film is slated to be released on May 9, 2024.
