Mahesh Babu has witnessed new heights of stardom and characterization with his memorable film Okkadu directed by versatile filmmaker Gunasekhar. This film took Mahesh to a different range of acting skills, coolness and novelty. Right from then, the Superstar never looked back in his career. Okkadu is still termed to be most memorable film for Mahesh Babu as well as his fans and Gunasekhar has been greatly instrumental in making it a blockbuster. Perhaps this was the reason which made Mahesh work with Gunasekhar once again in Arjun. As a result, Mahesh always shared a special bonding with this maverick director.
It is a well known fact that Gunasekhar's dream project Rudramadevi is going to release soon in the midst of larger than life films such as Baahubali and Srimanthudu. Gunasekhar has been quite busy wrapping up the VFX work for the flick and roping in every possible positive aspect to rise expectations on this film. Even Chiranjeevi has supported the film by giving his prestigious voice over for Rudramadevi and now, Mahesh also has extended his help for this huge project.
Sources say that Mahesh has offered his help regarding promotions of the film and told Gunasekhar to ask for any help needed for the film at all. Mahesh was infact considered for Gona Ganna Reddy's role in Rudramadevi but due to dates issue, Allu Arjun came into the project!
Regardless of competitive atmosphere, this is indeed a great move by Mahesh to support other contemporary films as well. This is perhaps one more reason why Mahesh is called Superstar of Telugu Cinema!
