Superstar Mahesh Babu generally prefers to work with star and in-form directors. He shelved his film with Vamsi Paidipally since he didn’t like the final narration from the director. Then, he took an atypical decision by giving nod to director Parasram who didn’t have the experience of directing any star hero till date, though his last directorial Geetha Govindam was a blockbuster.
Now, it is coming out that, Mahesh Babu took another atypical decision by suggesting Keerthy Suresh’s name for the lead actress role in the film. Given the film will have significance for lead actress as well, he opined Keerthy Suresh who won national award for her performance in Mahanati will be the right choice.
It is also learnt that, Parasuram already narrated the film’s script to Keerthy Suresh when she was in Hyderabad. The actress too is said to have liked the story and her role, but asked the makers to give her time until wrapping her ongoing project Annaatthe starring Rajinikanth.
Keerthy Suresh who is busy doing several female centric films is not getting any plum offers in Telugu. Now, she got to romance Mahesh Babu in his next flick billed to be a family entertainer.
