Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu has an unprecedented fan following in the South. Even people in the North enjoy watching his films for his larger-than-life screen persona. What Salman Khan is in the north, this star is in the South. And for the last many years, there has been a crossover of sorts between the North and the South. Akshay Kumar is all set to make his Southern debut with the eagerly awaited 2.0, Tamil Superstar Surya debuted in Bollywood with the 2010 crime drama Rakhta Charitra. Now, if all goes well, Mahesh Babu also may make his BIG Bollywood debut soon.
And can you guess who’ll direct the film? The Baahubali director SS Rajamouli! The film will be a bilingual one, just like Prabhas’ next magnum opus, Saaho. A source says, “Mahesh Babu wants Rajamouli to create the kind of cinema that will be a game-changer, just like Baahubali. But he doesn’t want another Baahubali or a costume drama. The two have been throwing ideas at one another and they’ve finally cracked an idea.”
Currently, Rajamouli is busy with his next mega-ambitious film with Junior NTR and Ram Charan, whereas Mahesh Babu is gearing up for Maharshi, his next release that should be out by April 2019.
