The director duo Krishna DK and Raj Nidumoru said that they were doing a film with Mahesh Babu. They were in talks with the actor since six months. The movie is an action-comedy film and it is not a remake of any south film, it is an original subject.
The director duo rocked Bollywood with their zombie comedy film Go Goa Gone, starring Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das and Puja Gupta.
Mahesh’s debut film is likely to be made in two languages – Hindi and Telugu. The shooting for the film will begin by the end of this year. The makers are searching an actress for the lead lady role. They have decided to choose either a known actress or even a newcomer, whoever fits the role.
The makers also said that the yet-untitled project will be a stylish action film that the makers plan to promote on an international scale.
Even though, Mahesh Babu was not available to get comments from him, Raj confirmed the development, he said that they would be starting the work with Mahesh after their present film with Saif. At this point, the film is in Telugu and the decision to make it in Hindi also would be taken when they start shooting, he said.
