Mumbai: Screen writer K V Vijayendra Prasad says his 2012 superhit Telugu film “Eega” might be turned into television series.
There were reports that Salman Khan is set to make his Telugu film debut with “Eega 2”, the sequel to director SS Rajamouli’s 2012 blockbuster film “Eega”. The story was written by Prasad, who is Rajamouli’s father.
Prasad had last year said that Salman has shown interest in the script of “Eega 2”.
When asked about the status of the sequel, Prasad said here, “I had once thought of this but it is not happening because that will be coming up in a television series, it might be in Hindi.”
Prasad, who has written blockbusters like “Baahubali” series and “”Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, says there are no projects with Salman at the moment.
Meanwhile, speculation was rife that Sunny Deol had roped in Prasad to pen the story for his next film “Mera Bharat Mahaan”.
“That was also a plan but now it has got shelved because Sunny got busy with launching his son.”
Prasad has been roped in by filmmaker Goldie Behl for penning the script for an upcoming TV series titled “Aarambh”.
