Following the Brahmostavam debacle, Mahesh Babu is set to team up with filmmaker AR Murugadoss for a bilingual project. Mahesh Babu will commence work on film at the end of June or early in July. The film will be shot in Telugu and Tamil.

Tipped to have a budget of a whopping Rs 90 crore, this film could very well be the most expensive one in Mahesh’s career.

The grapevine had earlier been thick with rumours that Akshay Kumar might play the antagonist in the film. The decision to rope in Akshay Kumar was reportedly taken as the Bollywood biggie is already playing a baddie in superstar Rajinikanth’s “Robo 2.0”, with plans to turn it into a trilingual.

According to DNA, however, AR Murugadoss has confirmed that Akshay Kumar will not be a part of the film, putting the rumours to rest.
