The Aagadu star Mahesh Babu confirms that the his film with Mani Ratnam is still on
There seems to be a new twist in the tale for Mani Ratnam-Mahesh Babu-Nagarjuna project. Few days back speculations flew thick and fast that Mani Ratnam’s comeback film to Tollywood with Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna had been called off. The Manam star Akkineni Nagarjuna himself had confirmed the news.
But now Superstar Mahesh Babu has clarified that he has not walked out of filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s yet-untitled upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual. He says the dates are being worked out and they plan to start shooting soon.
“Mani Ratnam project is very much on. Since I’m busy with multiple projects, my dates are being work out. There will be more clarity on this project when the official announcement will be made,” Mahesh Babu told IANS.
Aishwarya Rai and Akkineni Nagarjuna are also to be part of this project, which is expected to go on floors soon. Last month even Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had confirmed the same about the Mani Ratnam movie.
While this will be the fourth time Aishwarya will collaborate with Mani after Iruvar, Guru and Raavan, Nagarjuna will be working with auteur second time after Telugu drama Geethanjali.
This will be Mahesh’s first film with Mani Ratnam.
Mahesh Babu is currently busy wrapping up Telugu actioner Aagadu.
