Megastar Chiranjeevi and Superstar Mahesh Babu are massive film stars with tremendous stardom and fan following. Irrespective of the kind of film, class or mass, they both possess the potential to attract huge audiences to theatres. If the right film comes their way, they can rewrite box-office records. So, what if both Megastar and Superstar collaborate to share the screen space - going to be nonstop Hungama isn't it?
The entire Industry is surprised by rumors that Mahesh Babu is part of #Chiru152. If this turns out to be true, box-office records are sure to get broken. However, neither the makers of the film have neither declined nor confirmed the news. Now, the fresh reports are suggesting Mahesh was approached to play a role that Ram Charan was supposed to do. But, Mega Powerstar has decided to take up his role. So, Mahesh may not be required for this project now. But, it is not going to be easy for makers to offload Mahesh now.
Since the producers have already begun the discussions with Superstar about call sheets & remuneration, it may not sound appropriate to remove Mahesh from the project now. Given that emotions in the cinema industry are sensitive, makers of Aacharya are now confused over how to convey this news to Superstar.
Unless Mahesh decides to opt-out of the project now, the makers won't be able to replace Mahesh with Charan. Industry talk is that Aacharya producers have decided to bring in Ram Charan only if Mahesh himself opts out.
