It seems that each and every star of any film industry is branching out to other industries, be it Kollywood or Tollywood. The latest to join the line is the famous actor Mahesh Babu, who is hailed as ‘Prince’ in Andhra Pradesh.

Sources said that, “Mahesh knows Tamil very well since he was brought up in Chennai. He is eagerly waiting for ‘Shivam’.”

Mahesh has been a part of the Tamil film industry for a while in the form of Tamil dubbed films where he had been in the lead. But this is his first foray into the world of a straight-up Tamil movie. The movie in question is to be directed by Krish of ‘Vaanam’ fame and to be produced by Ashwini Dutt. With plans in place to have it made in Tamil and Telugu at the same time, the film has been tentatively named Shivam
