Director A R Murugadoss confirmed officially on twitter that S J Suryah has been roped in to play the baddie in Mahesh Babu's next. "Suryah plays antagonist in my next. Looking forward to work with him", read a tweet from Murugadoss.
The film, which will be made on a budget of Rs. 90 crore, reportedly features Parineeti Chopra as the leading lady. The regular shooting of the project, according to a source, will commence from July 15 in Hyderabad, with a song shoot.
However, this is not going well with majority of Pawan Kalyan fans, while the choice is getting mixed responses from the moviegoers and Mahesh Babu fans.
It is known that Pawan's next is being directed by S J Suryah and the star's fans doubt the director's ability to manage both the responsibilities.
A few fan-boys of Mahesh expressed that S J Suryah might not look tough enough in front of a star like Mahesh. But, we would want to add that it is too early for anyone to comment, since none of us know about the character sketch of S J Suryah, in the film.
On the other hand, Suryah has already clarified that he took the consent of Pawan, before signing Mahesh's film. Pawan Kalyan apparently hugged the director tight and wished him the best. Chillax people.
