Mahesh Babu and director Koratala Siva’s most-awaited film has been launched on Wednesday in a low key affair. Following the sentiment, Mahesh hasn’t made it to the pooja ceremony whereas his better half Namrata Shirodkar attended the muhurat. This is the crazy combination given that Siva-Mahesh’s previous film Srimanthudu is a blockbuster and stands one among the top 3 grossing Telugu films till date.
The film’s regular shooting is expected to begin by the end of January 2017 after Mahesh gets free from his ongoing film directed by AR Murugadoss. Well-known cinematographer Ravi K Chandran of Rang De Basanti, Dil Chahta Hai fame is going to crank the camera. The film’s leading lady hasn’t been finalised and a hunt is on for the heroine opposite Mahesh.
Rumours have it that Mahesh would be seen as Chief Minister in this yet-to-be-titled film which is bankrolled by producer DVV Danayya. If all goes well, the makers are planning to release this film in Sep 2017.
