Mahesh Babu’s next is about farmer’s plight


Here is more from the newly-revamped socio-politically conscious cinema of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu. After playing the conscientious trendy chief minister of Andhra Pradesh in his last film, the blockbuster Bharat Ane Nenu, it is now revealed that Mahesh’s next underproduction film to be released in the summer of 2019 will address itself to the crippling problems of farmers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Says a source close to the development, “Mahesh Babu has been close to the issue of the farmers, their land loans and their impoverished condition. Both Mahesh and his director Vamsi Paidapally felt that the actor must lean forward to show his solidarity with the farming fraternity.”

The source quickly clarifies on the tone of the untitled film (Mahesh Babu’s 25th release as a leading man). “It won’t be a dark film on farmers’ suicide. It will be a film filled with happiness and hope.”
