Mahesh Babu’s 25th film had been formally launched today on the auspicious eve of Krishnashtami. This film is going to be directed by Vamshi Paidipally and is produced by two top producers Dil Raju and Ashwini Dutt under Sri Venkateswara Creations and Vyjayanthi Movies respectively. Mahesh Babu is not wasting any time in signing his movies. Even before release of his 23th film Spyder, his next two films are already locked out.
It was Ashwini Dutt, who had earlier launched Mahesh Babu in 1999 with the film "Raja Kumarudu" under the direction of K. Raghavendra Rao and now once again he teamed up with Mahesh Babu after a long time. However this time, Mahesh Babu wants to give break to his former producer Ashwini Dutt, who had been struggling in his career due to frequent high budget flops. It is heard that Mahesh Babu asked Ashwini Dutt to be co–producer for this movie even though the director Vamshi Paidipally came up with producer Dil Raju.
Mahesh Babu is currently shooting for “Bharath Ane Nenu” under the direction of Koratala Siva in Lucknow. Since Mahesh has a sentiment of not attending the initial movie launch ceremony of any of his films, Mahesh's wife Namrata had attending the ceremony on behalf of Mahesh along with his son and daughter. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the songs for this movie and the film is scheduled to release in mid 2018.
