Mahesh Babu is all set to entertain with his milestone 25th film Maharshi which is slated for a grand release on May 9th. He is going to thrill movie lovers as a student, CEO of a software company, cricketer and a farmer. Mahesh will be seen romancing Pooja Hegde and Sonal Chauhan in Maharshi.
In the meantime Mahesh's next with Anil Ravipudi is generating interest among movie lovers. Fans got excited when news of Lady Amitabh Vijayashanti and Sandalwood Super Star Upendra playing key roles became viral.
But now shocking news is out that Upendra is not starring in the film. Speaking to scribes, Upendra said he is not starring in the film. He said though he got excited with the role offered by the makers, he refused to do the film as he couldn't adjust his dates due to his busy schedule.
As per reports, Mahesh will romance Bollywood beauty Sonakshi Sinha. The makers earlier planned to cast either Sai Pallavi or Rashmika Mandanna and they zeroed in Rashmika Mandanna after Mahesh fans pressurised them not to cast Sai Pallavi.
Now sources say the makers haven't yet finalized Rashmika Mandanna and they are planning to cast Sonakshi Sinha opposite Mahesh Babu. Sonakshi Sinha was earlier considered for Mahesh Babu’s film with Krish which did not materialize.
