Okkadu can be easily considered as the milestone in Superstar Mahesh Babu's career. It is the first commercial hit in Mahesh's career, which has made him an action hero. Directed by Gunashekar, this film featured Bhumika Chawla as the heroine. Prakash Raj played the antagonist role in it. Released in 2003, it remained as a blockbuster at the box-office and was later remade into many languages.
After 17 years of its release, director Gunashekhar has posted some unseen stills of the movie on the internet recently. The fans went nostalgic while watching those photos. But Gunashekhar and his banner Gunaa Team Works hasn't stopped this trend with a day. They are posting the stills of Okkadu from the past few days. This is now raising doubts among the industry circles.
The Tollywood folks are doubting whether Gunashekhar is trying to woo Mahesh Babu and make him recollect the old memories to grab a chance of directing him. After Rudhrama Devi, Gunashekhar is yet to direct any film. He announced the film Hiranya Kasipa with Rana Daggubati but it still didn't go on floors. Thus, now people are assuming that Gunashekhar is planning to make a film with Mahesh Babu and regain his market value. Is it true? If yes, will Mahesh work with Gunashekhar? Let us wait and see.
