Superstar Mahesh Babu is all set to romance actress Parineeti Chopra in his upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual project, which will be helmed by A.R Murugadoss. The actress is reportedly charging Rs. 3.5 crore for her debut Telugu project.
To be predominantly shot against the backdrop of Mumbai, this Rs. 90 crore project will be shot for six months non-stop from July 15. While the initial portions will be shot in Hyderabad, the team will then head to Mumbai in August to shoot the rest of the movie.
Although Parineeti was never too keen to explore opportunities in the south, it was the combination of Murugadoss and Mahesh Babu that got her excited about this project. She was supposed to work with Murugadoss in Gabbar. However, due to her prior commitments she couldnâ€™t allocate dates for the project, and hence, had to decline the offer. Since then, sheâ€™s said to have been waiting for an opportunity to work with Murugadoss. Actor-filmmaker S.J Suryah, whose stellar performance in Iraivi got rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, will play the antagonist in the film.
Produced by Tagore Madhu, the yet-untitled project will have music by Harris Jayaraj while Santhosh Shivan will crank the camera.
