It’s common knowledge by now that Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu is all set to team up with acclaimed and award-winning director AR Murugadoss for his up next film after Brahmotsavam. The latest we hear is that the project is almost finalised and it would go onto floors soon after Mahesh wraps up his present commitment Brahmotsavam being directed by Srikanth Addala. Though the names of director Puri Jagannadh did rounds, we hear that Mahesh chosen Murugadoss over others.
The industry buzz is that the movie would be a Telugu-Tamil bilingual and would be made with a whopping budget of Rs 80 Crore. Mahesh did test his waters in Tamil with Srimanthudu. Since it was a hush-hush release for Mahesh in Tamil, and lack of proper planning, the film which was a blockbuster in Telugu, failed to repeat magic in Tamil. Now Mahesh wants to compensate that with his next Brahmotsavam which will also be a Telugu-Tamil bilingual. In an attempt to get more closer, he would be joining forces with Murugadoss for his up next.
More details related to the project have been kept under the wraps. Murugadoss too is busy with his Hindi directorial Akira featuring Sonakshi Sinha, Konkana Sen Sharma in the lead roles. Meanwhile, Murugadoss would be providing screenplay to Chiranjeevi’s 150th film while it would be directed by VV Vinayak.
