That was the time when Superstar Mahesh Babu was on a high ride with the cracking success of Athadu and Pokiri. On the other hand, a new face named Suriya [Tamil Superstar] became familiar to the Telugu audience with his stupendous off-beat thriller Ghajini. The film opened to some rave reviews and achieved a commercial success as well. A.R. Murugadoss was the mastermind behind this cult. Well, this is a known past but what many might not know is –
Murugadoss wanted to remake the film in Telugu with Superstar Mahesh. This was revealed by none other than director Murugadoss in a recent interview. Anyhow undeterred by the lost chance, he is still vying to make a film with the Superstar and is just waiting for the right chance to narrate a script to Mahesh.
But, will Mahesh who has already eaten a commercial blow with a psychological thriller like 1-Nenokkadine, accept yet another typical Murugadoss film? Besides, just…just imagine Mahesh as 'Ghajini' for a sec? [Oh My Murugadoss!!!]
Meanwhile, Raja Rani (a yet-to-release film) directed by Atlee Kumar and presented by Murugadoss is releasing this Friday [Mar 14th].
