In Europe there is a big competition for this movie rights and when asked John Walter, a distributor in Europe about this craze he said “It is really shocking to see this sort of competition for an Indian movie rights. Many people are keenly waiting for Bahubali”. Well, seems like Rajamouli has eyed for a much bigger records. It is almost confirmed that the next movie from this ace director will be “Garuda”. The Jr NTR and Mohanlal starer will be a whooping 1000 crore budget movie and it is said to be of more contents-tic and amazing than any other film on Indian screens.

This Hollywood giant studio which is well known to produce these sort of films is very much interested to invest in the movie. According to sources Disney has actually approached for Bahubali 2 but after knowing about Garuda they showed utmost interest. Disney is notably the first studio in the race for Garuda.
