After the stupendous success of Baahubali franchise, the Indian filmmakers believe that there is a great market for mythological and historical films. Baahubali kept the cash registers at the box-office ringing for over 20 – 25 days across the nation. Irrespective of the language and location, the movie emerged as the highest grosser in Indian film history.

Figuring out the budget and collections of the movie, the filmmakers are moving towards historical films. Interestingly, many subjects (scripts) are ready in the form of Hindu mythological and historical books. Taking inspiration from them, two movies are on the way.
