Mahesh Babu impressed with his son’s skills

Gautham plays the younger version of Mahesh in the film, slated to release next year

Superstar Mahesh Babu is impressed by his seven-year-old son Gautham Krishna’s ability to lip sync and mouth dialogues in upcoming Telugu action-thriller 1:Nenokkadine. “Mahesh was extremely happy that Gautham was able to perfectly mouth his lines in the very first take. He didn’t even need retakes as he was so confident with his lines and even produced the required modulation for the scenes,” the film’s director B Sukumar said in an interview.

“Gautham’s role is very important from the perspective of the film’s narrative. He will be seen in the flashback scenes of the film and has some very good lines to deliver,” he added. 1: Nenokkadine also features debutante Kriti Shanon alongside Nassar, Sayaji Shinde, Pradeep Rawat and Kelly Dorji with Vikram Singh in important roles.

Produced by 14 Reels Entertainment, the film has music by Devi Sri Prasad.
