Superstar Mahesh Babu’s upcoming movie ‘Maharshi’ release date has been once again pushed to a new one. Initially the makers planned to release the movie on April 25th.
However, the shooting is still in progress and is likely to be wrapped up by April 16th. As there is less gap between the earlier locked date, the producers of ‘Maharshi’ decided to bring the movie to the theatres on May 9th.
Vamshi Paidipalli is directing ‘Maharshi’ and it’s his first with the superstar. Mahesh will be seen in two different shades in this movie which is touted to be a concept and content based film.
It is confirmed that Mahesh Babu’s next will be directed by Anil Ravipudi as the former officially called off Sukumar’s project yesterday.
Anil Ravipudi who has scored a big hit with F2 is entering the big league with Superstar’s film. The film is likely to be produced by Anil Sunkara and Dil Raju.
Anil Ravipudi has given a budget estimate of Rs. 50 crore for the making of the movie excluding Mahesh’s remuneration. This amount will be recovered through digital, satellite and Hindi dubbing rights.
Theatrical business will be around Rs. 100 crore given the crazy combination.
Mahesh will get fifty percent of the theatrical business as his remuneration and the rest will be shared between the producers.
Therefore, Mahesh would be receiving a pay check of nearly Rs. 50 crore for this film. It is going to be a new record remuneration for any Telugu hero.
Chiranjeevi is reportedly paid Rs. 30 crore for Sye Raa a period drama that is taking very long time to hit the finish line. But Anil Ravipudi’s film will be complete within six months and Mahesh gets a whopping Rs. 50 crore for his work!
This could be the reason for Mahesh to take up this project over other proposals.
So far Mahesh has confined to one film at a time and only after wrapping up one, he would move on to his next.
Now Mahesh is breaking his own rule and will work for two films in parallel. He has confirmed films with directors Anil Ravipudi and Sukumar. Contrary to the rumours about film with Sukumar, it is very much on.
The first combination of Mahesh and director Anil is going to be high on entertainment.
‘Dookudu’ has unveiled the other side of Mahesh and his comedy timing was terrific in it. So once again we are going to witness an explosive performance from Mahesh.
And the film with Sukumar, the director has recently narrated the script to Mahesh and got a formal approval as well.
So Mahesh will shoot for both the films simultaneously and it’s a good news for the superstar fans!
