Superstar Mahesh Babu is not only a good actor but also a shrewd businessman when it comes to fulfilling his obligations to producers. It is a known fact that he committed to do a movie each for PVP and Ashwini Dutt long back. Also, he agreed to work with Dil Raju and took advance from him. As it would take so long to do separate movies for these three producers, he has cleverly fulfilled the commitments with a single film. That is why Maharshi is being jointly bankrolled by all three of them.
While working for Maharshi, Mahesh promised Dil Raju to do another movie very soon. Dil Raju planned to produce a big budget film with him sometime later. Meanwhile, producer Anil Sunkara and director Anil Ravipudi are coming together for a film with Mahesh Babu. This project is likely to commence after Maharshi.
As Mahesh is quite busy with numerous offers up his sleeve, he has planned to hit two birds with a single shot. Reportedly, he has asked Dil Raju to join hands with Anil Sunkara and wanted to fulfill both obligations with Anil Ravipudi’s film. But, Dil Raju has cleverly countered Mahesh Babu’s plan. He refused to co-produce Anil Ravipudi’s film citing that he is busy with other projects in his banner and asked Mahesh to do another separate film next year.
