Last year, director Sandeep Reddy became the talk of the town when his Arjun Reddy opened to a good response at the box office and received rave reviews along the way. Featuring young sensation Vijay Deverakonda and debutante Shalini Pandey in the lead, it created a buzz amongst fans thanks to its bold screenplay and became a big a trendsetter. Now, it seems that Sandeep Reddy is set to add another feather to his cap.
According to a leading website, the filmmaker may soon work with Mahesh Babu and give his fans a reason to rejoice. Confirming this, a source said that ‘Prince’ has asked him to come up with a final script so that he can take a call on the matter. However, at the same time, the source added that this film will not be going on the floors in the immediate future as both men are busy with their respective projects.
“Sandeep has pitched a story idea which Mahesh really liked. He’s been asked to develop the idea and come up with the full script to take a final call. Since Sandeep is expected to work on the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy first, his film with Mahesh has to wait,” added the source.
It will indeed be worth watching if this film materialises.
On a related note, Mahesh Babu is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’. The film has been directed by Koratala Siva and is slated to hit screens this April. In it, Mahesh Babu will be seen playing the role of a CM and experimenting with his onscreen image. BAN also has ‘MS Dhoni’ star Kiara Advani in the lead. His next film after that he will be the 25th one of his career. And is going to be helmed by ‘Oopiri’ director Vamsi Paidapally.
