Mahesh Babuâ€™s fans are waiting eagerly for his landmark 25th film to start rolling but there will be a slight delay in the commencement of its shooting. Meanwhile, there are reports of some issues between the producers and it dates back to seven years.
According to sources, Mahesh Babu had allotted dates to producer Ashwini Dutt as he was in a bad shape with a string of flops then. However, with the recent release, Mahanati, a biopic on the legendary actor Savitri turning out to be a massive success, the producer bounced back to glorious times.
Now, when Ashwini Dutt was not able to make a film with Mahesh Babu despite having his dates for various other reasons, it was decided among them that the dates be transferred to noted producer Dil Raju and this was done with an agreement that Ashwini Dutt would be the presenter of the film.
However, with Mahanati turning out to be a blockbuster hit, Ashwini Dutt and his daughter Priyanka and Swapna now want to be the co-producers of the Mahesh Babu starrer. This, of course, did not go too well with Dil Raju as he is set on bankrolling the film solely through his banner Sri Venkateswara Cine Creations. Yet to be titled, the film will be directed by Vamsi Paidapally. Other details about the rest of the star cast and crew are expected to be revealed shortly.
It may be mentioned here that Mahesh Babuâ€™s last film release, Bharath Ane Nenu was a big hit in his career. A political thriller, the film was directed by Koratala Siva and produced by DVV Danayya under his banner DVV Entertainments. Following its immense success, its dubbed version was released in Tamil under the title Bharath Enum Naan last month.
