Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu, who is currently busy shooting for AR Murugadoss directed yet-untitled Tamil-Telugu bilingual project, will be seen playing an intelligence officer in the film.
"It's not a regular cop's role. He plays an intelligence officer and contrary to reports, he won't get to don the khaki. It's going to be a very stylish film and it will portray Mahesh in a very different avatar," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Also starring Rakul Preet Singh and SJ Suryah in important roles, the project is currently being shot in EVP world here in Chennai.
The film, which is being made as a bonafide bilingual, marks the first time collaboration of Mahesh and Murugadoss and also marks Mahesh's debut in Tamil.
Though the actor is making his debut, he is well-versed in Tamil and hence is expected to dub for himself. The film is expected to hit the screen early next year.
