Manirathnam Signs Mahesh Babu

Tollywood Prince Mahesh Babu is realizing one of biggest dreams that of working in a Mani Ratnam film. Mahesh Babu himself confirmed on Sunday the news that Mani Ratnam met him recently and signed him for his next bilingual film which will be shot in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously.

Kollywood was already buzzing about Mani Ratnam making a period film adapting the epic historical novel ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ with Vijay, Vikram and a third star playing the all important male lead roles. The undeclared third actor was thought to be Mahesh Babu.

But the sources say the film by Mani Ratnam with Mahesh Babu is not ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ but another film that will be a social drama to be filmed largely in European countries.

That presses the curiosity button even harder. If Mahesh Babu is not the third big actor in ‘Ponniyin Selvan’, who could it be? Who could it be? Who could it be?
