There is a lot riding on this combination. Why? Because the scope of imagination is definitely limitless. Prince Mahesh Babu and ace Tamil director AR Murugadoss are set to try a magical output together for the Telugu audience. This much talked about project has been confirmed to take off from April and is planned to be released for the Diwali fest this year.
The film that is anticipated to be made at a whopping budget of 90 Crore is being closely protected, what with the production team being tight lipped about the possible genre and plot. Off late, Mahesh has been on an experimental spree with the kind of films he is signing. While 1 Nenokkadine turned heads and made the audience gasp at the star’s volatile move, Mahesh seemed unfazed. The superstar of the Telugu screen and the prince charming refused to make noise about his rhyme or reasons. However, Mahesh definitely evoked some kind of hope for the young directors looking to break the monotony in Telugu films. The pulse of the audience, however, remains so unpredictable.
Mahesh has been on the move one more time, after creating a striking impact with his performance in Srimanthudu.
Murugadoss, on the other hand, is known for his compelling plots that scream of a definitive fast paced action running throughout the reel. His exclusivity with the Telugu film making has been quite limited, the last ever being Stalin with Megastar Chiranjeevi. He is reckoned as a talented director who makes waves in the Tamil industry with some roaring big tickets that have been effectively dubbed and remade into other languages.
The fact that AR chose Mahesh as his next leading man is nothing short of excitement and intrigue for the Telugu audience. A lot can be riding on what this film will turn out to be. Fingers crossed.
