Super Star Mahesh Babu not only shares his epithet with Rajinikanth, but is also inching towards reaching his position. The reports from the industry sources inform that, Mahesh Babu will be charging ₹25 Crores as remuneration for his next film with A R Murugadoss, which is previously done only by Superstar Rajinikanth in Tamil.
While none of our Telugu heroes are even close to the figure, Mahesh Babu will be the highest paid actor in Telugu and will stand next to Rajinikanth in South India. Though reports were rife that Prabhas has charged ₹60 Crores for Baahubali, the actor trashed them.
So if the latest news is to be believed, it is Mahesh, who is going to get the 'Highest Paid' tag. It is known that Mahesh and A R Murugadoss's project will be filmed with a whopping 100 crores budget and the team said to have already made some clear plans for the big budget to work out economically.
Murugadoss holds a huge market and his films were remade into multiple languages earlier including Hindi and Mahesh too has tested his waters in Tamil with Srimanthudu. Considering all the factors, the duo reportedly locked a universal subject and are working towards making it a career turning hit for Mahesh.
With the phenomenal success of Srimanthudu, Mahesh has already settled his scores in Tollywood and he is not in any mood to look back as he is planning his career with a great line up of films. If everything goes in favor, the film will go on sets on April 12 and Mahesh will be co-producing the project.
