Mahesh chooses Puri over Raj & DK

Superstar Mahesh Babu has finally chosen reliable and tested Puri Jagannadh over the fresh and exciting duo Raj & DK for his upcoming film produced by C Ashwini Dutt. The veteran producer has the dates of the actor from a long time and is setting up various combinations for the actor to choose from. Earlier there was talk of a film in the combination of Mahesh Babu and Krish for Ashwini Dutt but with the director moving to Bollywood project the producer dropped the project.

Later there were talks that the director duo Raj & DK would be directing Superstar for a quickie post Aagadu. But it looks like the failure of 1 Nenokkadine has made the actor relook at his forthcoming films and go with the experienced Puri Jagannadh instead with whom he had scored two major successes in the past. Even the director has now confirmed the project and it will go onto sets later in the year after the release of Aagadu. It will be a fresh project, says, Puri Jagannadh and will release for Sankranthi next year.
