The sources added that initially the makers wanted to go to a village for the shoot but as they felt that thy would not be able to control the crowds, they dropped the idea and constructed the village set at RFC. The village scenes are very important and it mostly feature Superstar Mahesh Babu and Allari Naresh, as the story revolves around them.
Pooja Hegde is on the board to play the love interest of Mahesh Babu in Maharshi. The actress was last seen in Trivikram Srinivas’s Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava, which was decent hit at the box office. This is the first time, when Pooja Hegde is sharing the screen space with Mahesh Babu in a film.
Apart from the lead pair, Maharshi has other stars like Rao Ramesh, Prakash Raj, Jagapathi Babu, Brahmaji and Vennela Kishore in supporting roles.
Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi is produced by Vyjayanthi movies, Sri Venkateswara Creations and PVP Cinemas, whereas it has music by Devi Sri Prasad.
Expectations are riding high on Maharshi because Mahesh Babu’s last release Bharat Ane Nenu was a super hit.
After wrapping up the shoot of Vamsi Paidipally’s Maharshi, Mahesh Babu will start the work of Sukumar’s film. Who will play the female lead, is not yet decided. It will be bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers.
