Gunashekar is the director who gave a real hit to Mahesh Babu. The movie instilled mass elevation to the actor and propelled him to the main league with Okkadu. But their next combination movie, Sainikudu is a total mishap. The movie literally grounded Mahesh Babu and is the biggest disaster in the actor’s career. Since then Mahesh Babu is not in good terms with Guna. Despite several attempts by Guna, Mahesh did not give him a third chance.

Now once again Guna is pressing hard with Mahesh to do a guest role in his upcoming movie, Rudramma Devi. Mahesh recent lost a chance in a historical movie by Mani Ratnam. The role is tempting for him but is still in dilemma to whether give him a chance or not. Rudramma Devi is also the maiden production venture of Guna, it will be a great help to him if Mahesh agrees to the role.
