Rumours are rife that he is considering the names of Prabhas and Mahesh Babu for his Tollywood debut. Renowned production house Mythri Movie Makers has already paid advance to Prasanth Neel to do a film under the banner. They wanted Prasanth to direct Mahesh Babu in his next film. However, Prasanth has reportedly asked Mythri producers to seek dates from NTR.
