It was recently reported that after the release of Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum, Krish would direct Superstar Mahesh Babu in his next project, which is expected to hit the floor in mid of 2013. The latest reports suggest that he has already approached Sonakshi Sinha for the female lead in Shivam. The actress is said to have given her oral consent for this project. She is expected to sign it officially soon.
However, Shivam is going to be a pure commercial entertainer, which will be directed by Krish and produced by Ashwini Dutt under his own production house. Krish has almost completed the scripting work for the movie. The formal shooting of the movie is likely to begin in 2013 after Mahesh Babu wraps up his current projects like Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu and another untitled film with Sukumar.
