Though the reports are afloat that Mahesh will team up with A R Murugadoss, for his next project, after Srikanth Addala's Brahmotsavam, None from the official quarters spoke a word about it. Finally, Santosh Sivan has now officially confirmed the project while informing he is on board as the cinematographer.
"Looking forward to doing the film with Murugadoss, Mahesh Babu, next year", he tweeted. Mahesh Babu, who has recently tested his waters in Tamil with Srimanthudu, is now aiming high to conquer the Tamil market with his this much awaited project, only to further strengthen his box office potential.
Also, Harris Jayaraj is reportedly scoring the tunes. The project is going to be made with a whopping budget of 100 Crores and the economics were already thoroughly worked out since Murugadoss holds a huge market and his films were remade into multiple languages earlier including Hindi. Considering all the factors, the duo reportedly locked a universal subject and are working towards making it a career turning hit for Mahesh.
If everything goes in favor, the film will go on sets in April and Mahesh will be co-producing the project. Also, Mahesh and Murugadoss are reportedly keen on zeroing in on an actress, who is more appealing to Tamil, Telugu as well as Hindi audiences and we see Shruti Haasan and Deepika Padukone's names popping up in the gossip columns.
Looks like Mahesh Babu has bigger plans on his side and we only have to wait and watch how well they shape up in the end. Meanwhile, let us hope the new path of exploring different industries only brings him great success.
