Mahesh Babu's high hopes on Businessman has been shattered – badly. The movie, which generated a huge-hype from the day one, has turned out to be a damp-squib, which has become an indigestible fact for his fans. However, the only question that has to be answered about the movie now is – will the Dookudu actor star in the Hindi version too despite getting thumbs down for the movie from the audience.
Puri Jagannath reportedly announced recently that he sacked Abhishek Bachchan from Businessman considering the Bollywood star's recent track record. He claimed that Mahesh Babu has replaced Junior B in the Hindi version of Businessman. But sources say that the Telugu actor may reconsider his decision or at least ask the filmmaker to rewrite the script because of the poor talks about the Tollywood version, which was released on January 13.
Industry insiders say that Mahesh Babu and Puri Jagannath should respect the audience verdict and accept the flaws in Businessman. Even if they wish to continue their association for the Hindi instalment, they should fix the issues in the script before starting the Bollywood project to make it bigger and better than the Tollywood film.
Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu's performance in Businessman has been praised to heavens. As a result, the movie has made good business at the Box Office in its first weekend.
