On a day when Mahesh Babu, his family, his fans and his Bharat Ane Nenu team are in a celebratory mood, here come’s another happy news. After the tremendous success of Bharat Ane Nenu, which has raked in over Rs 100 crore gross at the worldwide box office in just two days, the superstar is all set to unite with another Telugu blockbuster Rangasthalam’s director Sukumar. The announcement has just come in and we can’t even imagine how grand this film would be. The film, #Mahesh26, will be produced by Mythri movies and will start rolling by the end of this year.

The team is already eyeing a 2019 release for this film, touted to be a mass entertainer. It doesn’t get bigger than this. Interestingly, the director-actor duo of Sukumar and Mahesh Babu have earlier worked together in the film ‘1: Nenokkadine’ (English: 1: I am alone) which was a psychological thriller released in 2014. It starred Kriti Sanon in the female lead role and marked her Telugu cinema debut. The film had got unfavourable reviews from critics. But now, with the director’s fresh success with Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam, we can only hope that Sukumar – Mahesh Babu pair will give us some earth shattering numbers at the box office, along with good cinema.

Ram Charan on the other hand, has started shooting for his 12th film #RamCharan12 or #RC12 with director Boyapati Srinu. The film was announced earlier this year, but Ram was busy with Rangasthalam. Not that the film is out and a success and Ram Charan has had time to be with his family, he is back to work on this film. Both Ram Charan and Mahesh Babu have emerged as two powerful stars from Tollywood. Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam became the highest grossing Telugu film in USA on the opening day and now, the mantle has been taken over by Mahesh Babu. No wonder then, this news about their next projects has not just fans, but critics and the Telugu film industry also excited. We are looking forward to see more records to be made and broken in 2019!
