Vamshi Paidipally meets Mahesh Babu

It was sure a huge shock for Vamshi Paidipally after the top actor Mahesh Babu rejected his story without any hesitation. It was widely speculated that the film got shelved but Vamshi Paidipally is strict on his stand. The ace director met Mahesh and narrated a new plot to the actor. Mahesh wanted him to narrate the bound script and he is keen on taking the final call only after he hears the full narration.

Vamshi Paidipally is now focused on the script and is in the hunt for new writers to join the team and pen the script. With Mahesh doing Megastar Chiranjeevi’s film, Vamshi will have ample time to work on the script. If things go as per the plan, the project may start later this year. Parasuram too is in the race to direct Mahesh in his next. Superstar will take the final call after listening to these scripts and he is not in a hurry.

As of now, he is on a break and is spending time with his family. Mahesh had prior commitments and is also shooting for commercials during this break.

Mahesh offered a bomb for Megastar’s Next

0

Megastar Chiranjeevi was awestruck with the narration of Koratala Siva and signed the project Acharya. He even suggested Ram Charan’s name for a crucial role that has 30 minutes of screen space. With the delay in RRR release, Megastar had to change his plans. There are strong speculations that Superstar Mahesh Babu may replace Charan in the film. Mahesh too is yet to announce his next and he shares a close bonding with Koratala Siva.

We have learned that Mahesh along with Chiranjeevi will be a part of a song. Mahesh Babu will also have a solo song in the film. The actor is currently in Mumbai and Koratala Siva will narrate the script after Mahesh Babu returns back to the city. Mahesh will take the final call after hearing the draft and his role. There are talks that Mahesh will be taking Rs 35-40 crores for his 30 minutes role. Acharya is said to be a mass entertainer that is tipped with a social drama.

The shoot of Acharya is happening in Hyderabad and is jointly bankrolled by Matinee Entertainments and Konidela Production Company banners. August 14th and October 2nd are the two considered release dates of the film.

Mahesh prefers bound scripts over star directors

0

Last year it was a rude shock for Sukumar after Mahesh Babu picked up Anil Ravipudi over Sukumar who delivered an industry hit like Rangasthalam. Mahesh once again proved the same that he is going with the content rather than working with a star director. He is said to have straightaway rejected the story narrated by Vamshi Paidipally and there are talks that he may soon work with Parasuram.

After delivering back to back hits, Mahesh Babu is not in a mood to compromise. If nothing exciting comes, Mahesh prefers to holiday with his family instead of doing films for money. He is on a break currently and Mahesh will start working on his next later this year. Parasuram is working on the script and Mahesh is already in the hunt for the other best options.

Mahesh Babu feels biopic on him will not work

0

Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu says a biopic on him will not work as he has a very simple and boring life.

“Mine is a very simple and boring life. I don’t think a biopic on me would work,” Mahesh told timesofindia.indiatimes.com, when he was asked that if a biopic were to be made on his life, what it would be called and who would play the lead.

Talking about one memorable moment from a movie set that he will cherish forever, Mahesh said: “I wouldn’t say movie set, but when ‘Murari’ released in 2001, I went to Sudarshan 35 MM theatre with my father and watched the morning show. After that film got over, my dad put his hand on my shoulder. That’s a moment I can never forget.”

According to Mahesh, his idea of a perfect date is watching a “really good movie” with his wife.

If he woke up one day as the CM of the state, what is the first thing he would do?

“I don’t know…God bless the state then (laughs),” he said.

According to timesofindia.indiatimes.com, three actors from Tollywood Mahesh like to go on a road trip with are ” Charan, Tarak and just to get the balance right, Chiranjeevi garu.”

US box office : Ala.. extends its strong run, SLN slows down

Tollywood biggies Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and Sarileru Neekevvaru have managed to tide over the dull phase at overseas box office as they took sensational openings last week. By the end of first week, they have collected a combined gross of over $ 4M in North America.

In the second weekend, Ala Vaikunthapurramulo is continuing to dominate the box office by extending it’s strong run. After collecting $ 212K on Friday, the Trivikram directional had another terrific day with close to $ 280K on its second Saturday. The film is all set to enter $ 2.5M club and emerge as Trivikram’s career biggest hit by surpassing A..Aa. Aggressive pre release promotions due to blockbuster audio and promising trailers have given a very good start for Ala Vaikunthapurramlo in overseas. The positive word of mouth and superb reviews have further helped the film to have a dream run. Trade analysts are predicting that the film will enter $ 3M club in its full run. Apart from Baahubali series, only Bharat Ane Nenu and Rangasthalam have grossed more than $ 3M in overseas.

Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru has considerably slowed down in the second week after a good first week. On its second Friday, the commercial entertainer collected $ 67K. There is hardly any sign of improvement on second Saturday as it collected close to $ 70K. The film will cross the $ 2M on Sunday and might end up within $ 2.5M in its full run. It may fall short of breakeven status. After Srimanthudu, Mahesh Babu’s next films failed to enter the profit zone in overseas. His previous films Bharat Ane Nenu and Maharshi have ended up with minor losses in overseas. Even though Sarileru Neekevvaru managed to mint strong revenues at domestic box office, the film has surely underperformed in overseas.
