As we all know, the charismatic Mahesh Babu is the undisputed ‘Prince’ of Telugu cinema. During his highly eventful career, the 41-year-old superstar has delivered quite a few hits at the box office. Moreover, he has won over several fans courtesy his adorable looks and stylish onscreen mannerisms. Now, his fans have a big reason to rejoice. According a leading website, veteran actor Sarathkumar has been roped in to essay the role of his dad in his film with Koratala Siva.
For the uninitiated, Sarathkumar is one of the most respected stars in the Southern film industry today. He has acted in Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Telugu movies. It will indeed be interesting to see the two come together on the big screen. Right, folks?
On a related note, Koratala Siva previously directed Mahesh in ‘Srimanthudu’, which hit screens in 2015. Touted to be a drama, it also featured Shruti Haasan in the lead and fared well at the ticket window, Let us hope that their next one too sets the BO on fire.
Interestingly this news comes at a time when Mahesh is gearing up for the release of ‘Spyder’. Shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu, it has been directed by AR Murugadoss and features the superstar in the role of an intelligence officer. Based on its teaser—which was released a few days ago—this one could be the next big thing in Telugu cinema.
As it so happens, Mahesh was last seen in ‘Brahmotsavam’ which bombed at the ticket window. Let’s hope ‘Spyder’ helps him bounce back in style.
