Superstar Mahesh Babu attended Tennis player Sania Mirza’s retirement bash on Sunday in Hyderabad. Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman also graced the event. A lovely selfie of Mahesh Babu with AR Rahman from the event is going viral on social media.
Mahesh fans are heartbroken to see Mahesh and Rahman together reminiscing about the fact that they didn’t collaborate with each other on many projects. They did only one film together, Nani in 2004. Though the film was a washout, the songs are popular still today and are considered one of the best albums in Mahesh’s career. Some fans were also requesting Rahman to collaborate with Mahesh once again for an upcoming film.
Mahesh is right now busy with SSMB28. Thaman is scoring the music for the film. After this film, Mahesh will move on to the biggest and most important film of his career with SS Rajamouli. And it is a known fact that Rajamouli prefers to work with MM Keeravani and no one else.
So Mahesh and AR Rahman coming together for a film might not happen for another 4-5 years. After that, no one knows what the scenario will be.
AR Rahman today is not the AR Rahman he was in the 90s and 2000s. His recent works have been mediocre and forgettable. So an in-form superstar like Mahesh working with a has-been music director like AR Rahman seems to be practically not possible. But in the film industry, there is nothing like the impossible!
