Why Mahesh is wrap­ping up Ma­harshi swiftly

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - Shreya Mukher­jee

Ac­tor Mahesh Babu, who is back on the sets of his next Tel­ugu film, plans to fin­ish the movie’s shoot­ing at one stretch. The ac­tor wrapped up the first sched­ule of Ma­harshi in De­cem­ber and then took a break for a fam­ily va­ca­tion in Dubai. Given the in­ter­est around the film, it seems both the mak­ers and the ac­tor have de­cided to fin­ish the film as early as pos­si­ble; more so be­cause they are eye­ing a sum­mer re­lease.

Mahesh, re­port­edly, will be playing five dif­fer­ent roles with five dif­fer­ent looks in the film that is based on the plight of farm­ers in the coun­try. Two looks from the movie, which have already been re­leased, have cre­ated quite a buzz.

Be­sides the aim to fin­ish the project in one go, a source close to the film, which is be­ing helmed by Vamsi Paida­pally, shares that ev­ery­thing has been kept quite hush-hush about the project and all those who are a part of it have been asked not to re­act to any reports. “Pre­cau­tions are be­ing taken that noth­ing about the film goes out be­fore it hits the the­atres,” the source adds.

A por­tion of the film that nar­rates the story of three friends played by Mahesh, Al­lari Naresh and Pooja Hegde, has been shot in the US. Ac­tor Jaya Pradha is re­port­edly por­tray­ing a piv­otal char­ac­ter in the project.

Ma­harshi is Mahesh Babu’s next out­ing after Bharat Ane Nenu (2018)
