Since SPYder is a Telugu-Tamil bilingual and also because it is being made with high technicalities, the film’s budget crept up to 120 crore. Now it is heard that 100+ crore is being splurged on Mahesh’s new film ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ too.
Right from roping in a Bollywood actress, Kiara Advani to bringing on board senior Tamil actor Sharatkumar, makers of BAN are looking at all feasible options to wider the film’s reach. The film has conducive aspects such as the lethal combo of Mahesh-Koratala, Devi Sri’s music, Ravi K Chandran’s cinematography etc. but the biggest factor that might have convinced the producer, DVV Danayya to pour in 100 crore is the Tamil market, which is expected to recover around 20 crore for all future films of Mahesh post SPYder.
As of now, a lavish Assembly set is being erected at Annapurna Studio in Hyderabad with 2 Cr expense. The construction work is almost finished and the shoot here will commence shortly. Crucial scenes will be canned over a period of 40 days. Scenes featuring Mahesh as CM, especially the dialogues penned by writer-director Koratala Siva, are said to be the highlight of the film.
Mahesh will join the sets soon after he comes back from Romania, where the unit of SPYder is currently filming a romantic song on him and Rakul Preet Singh.
