Jagapathi Babu turns villain for Mahesh 26
They will be seen opposite each other for the third time in their career after Srimanthudu and Maharshi
Mahesh Babu and Jagapathi Babu will be seen opposite each other for the third time in their career after Srimanthudu and Maharshi. Directed by Anil Ravipudi and produced jointly by Dil Raju and Anil Sunkara, the film, with the working title #Mahesh26, is a revenge drama set in a village backdrop.
“Jagapathi Babu will be seen as a powerful villain in this film. It’s a quirky character that the actor hasn’t played until now and Anil was keen on signing Jagapathi for this part. His confrontation scenes with the protagonist (Mahesh) will deliver laughs and thrills in equal measure. He will be sporting a unique style of comedy and voice modulation in this film,” informs a source.
The film will be launched in May and the principal shooting will commence in June. Also starring Rashmika Mandanna and Vijayashanti in pivotal roles, #Mahesh26 is slated for a Sankranthi 2020 release.
