Superstar Mahesh Babu is shooting for Maharshi which is slated for summer release. Vamshi Paidipally is the director and the movie is said to be an emotional family drama. The actor signed his next film for Anil Ravipudi and this mass entertainer will start shooting from the mid of June. Rashmika Mandanna is the female lead in the film and she has been locked recently. Upendra and Vijayashanthi have been approached for other crucial roles in this mass entertainer.
Vijayashanthi recently gave her nod recently but Upendra rejected the offer due to his current commitments. Upendra has a bunch of Kannada films already and he will not be able to allot his dates because of which he rejected the offer. The makers are working for the right actor to replace Upendra. Anil Sunkara and Dil Raju are the producers.
