Mahesh Babu’s long hiatus from onscreen is going to come to an end this year. His latest film in Trivikram Srinivas’ direction is soon in the offing. After days of speculation about the film’s title, Mahesh Babu revealed the first look of the film, a poster on Twitter. The film has been titled Khaleja. Singanamala Ramesh is producing the film on Kanakarathna Movies banner. Anushka is the lead heroine and Prakash Raj is playing an important role.
The film wrapped up entire shooting except for a song and some scenes. Recently, a major portion of the film including the climax was shot near Pune. Two songs were later shot in Mumbai in Ahmed Khan’s choreography and the buzz is that Ahmed Khan has charged a bomb. Mahesh hasn’t appeared on big screens in almost three years since Athidhi and for Khaleja he’s teaming up with Trivikram Srinivas who had directed Mahesh’s Athadu. The buzz surrounding the film has been growing day by day. Geetha Film Distributors is going to release the film while Gemeni TV has already bought the satellite rights of the film for a huge amount. Even the prices being quoted for distribution in various regions of the state have been quite encouraging.
It’s the first time that Mahesh and Anushka will be seen in a film together. Mahesh has committed himself to do several films including Surendar Reddy, Sukumar and Rajamouli’s films in near future. On the other hand, Anushka is on cloud nine after her recent films Vedam and Singam made her the most sought after star in both Telugu and Tamil film industries.
