He says, "We just did a test shoot with Gautam. The shoot may take place sometime soon."
Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu also revealed the difficulty in handling Gautam's homework. The actor says that he can not pin his son down and lets his wife Namrata take care of him. The actor adds that he loves to spend his leisure hours with his daughter Sitara and plays with her whenever he gets time.
