It’s official now! Actor Mahesh Babu is all set for his next title with director Vamshi Paidipally as the latter announced the news over his first tweet joining the micro-blogging site on Saturday. “It’s my pleasure to announce my next film with The Superstar @urstrulyMahesh. #MB25. This film will be produced by Aswani Dutt garu and Dil Raju garu. #MB25,” posted Vamshi Paidipally.
This will be the first time Vamshi will be casting the popular actor. The director is known for his blockbusters like Prabhas’ Munna, Jr NTR Brindavanam and more recently his hit film Oopri with Nagarjuna.
But the new update about the film is that it is not being bankrolled by PVP Cinemas as decided before. The film will be jointly produced by popular directors Dil Raju and Aswani Dutt. However, other details of the cast and the shooting dates are yet to be announced.
The buzz is that Mahesh agreed to work after watching Oopiri that he liked immensely and he lauded the director for his skills. However, there was an impasse to work around the script.
Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu is already busy with two projects in hand. After Srimanthudu, the actor again had teamed up with Janatha Garage fame Koratala Siva for a film, tentatively titled Bharath Ane Nenu, that is set to hit the screens in September next year. The actor is also shooting another film with director AR Murugadoss, which will release in summers next year. The action entertainer is being shot simultaneously in three languages — Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. Rakul Preet Singh is the female lead and Mahesh will be essaying the role of an intelligence officer.
