New Delhi, May 3 (IANS) Filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli, whose magnum opus "Baahubali: The Beginning" is still winning honours, is not interested in Hollywood as of now.

After the success of "Baahubali: The Beginning", is he planning to make a Hollywood film?

"I don't think so I would like to," Rajamouli told reporters before receiving the 63rd National Film Award for "Baahubali: The Beginning" here on Tuesday.

The film, which was a box office wonder, has won the Best Feature Film at prestigious award gala. It even won the award for Best Special Effects.

The film features Prabhas Varma, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhatia.

"I was greatly inspired by the stories told by my grandmother...the stories of history of India and the country's grandness. I didn't know back then that I would be a filmmaker, but yes, the stories stayed with me for long. Right now, I have 'Baahubali:' part two to offer," he said.

"I would like to tell the stories of more kings of India. There are so many of them like Ashoka, Akbar and Maharana Pratap. Their stories are inspiring," he added.
