Hyderabad, July 10 (): Gautham Krishna, son of superstar Mahesh Babu, will be seen playing the role of young Mahesh Babu in his upcoming Telugu action-thriller “1: Nenokkadine”. The scenes featuring Gautham were recorded in London on Sunday.
The film’s spokesman said that Gautham Krishna, son of leading Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu, is playing the younger version of Mahesh in the film. Some important scenes on Gautham were shot in London on July 7.
He added it was very difficult for the director Sukumar to convince Mahesh to feature his son in the film. Initially, Mahesh felt Gautham was too young to enter films. Mahesh’s seven-year old son, Gautham Krishna will be seen in a flashback sequence.
Reports say “One – Nenokkadine” is a psychological thriller film, in which Mahesh Babu will be seen in three different get-ups. In one of the appearances, the actor will be seen showing his six-pack abs, for which he underwent physical training with world-renowned trainer Kris Gethin.
Newcomer Kriti Sanon plays the female lead. Other cast members include Sayaji Shinde, Kelly Dorji, Vikram Singh and Srinivasa Reddy.
Produced by Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta and Anil Sunkara under the 14 Reels Entertainment banner, “1: Nenokkadine” is directed by ace director Sukumar.
The action thriller is being shot in London now. As Gautham Krishna has done his scene, Mahesh Babu himself is busy shooting a car chase sequence around the outskirts of Belfast. The shooting is going on at a very rapid pace as the actor and the unit are keen to release the film this September.
Two months back, a short teaser of the film was released,which created a lot of buzz among Mahesh fans.
Even though there is no confirmation on the release date of the film, reports say the makers are planning to release the movie in the last week of September.
If this happens, the Mahesh starrer might clash with Jr NTR’s “Ramayya Vastavayya” which is scheduled to release on 27 September.
