Post the industry hit result of Rangasthalam, top director Sukumar wanted to do an action drama with Prince Mahesh Babu. The director painstakingly penned a script and narrated to Mahesh Babu. Since Mahesh Babu was buzzed to have been unsatisfied with the script, the director reportedly came up with another script for Mahesh Babu.
Even then, Mahesh Babu was gossiped to have kept Sukumar on hold, saying neither yes nor no to the passionate director. Having waited for more than a year, Sukumar had to approach Stylish Star Allu Arjun.
Don't know why, it appears there is a breach in the friendly terms between Mahesh Babu and Trivikram as well. The duo, in fact, worked for Athadu and Khaleja. Thereupon, there was no film in their combo. The other day, Mahesh Babu rubbed Trivikram's fans in a wrong way making a tweet on Darbar ignoring Trivikram's birthday. Had he conveyed birthday wishes to the director, it would have been a sensible gesture of Prince. On the other side, Mahesh Babu seems to be intentionally releasing his Sarileru Neekevvaru on the same day in which Trivikram's Ala Vaikunthapurramloo is hitting screens.
Since Mahesh Babu seems to have rifts with two top directors, his well wishers are advising him to give up all those issues and to develop a rapport with them so as to be in good books of the directors as well as his critics.
