Superstar Mahesh Babu and Sukumar were slated to work together after the wrap of Maharshi. However, the duo's pairing has so far failed to take off.
Sukumar had narrated two stories to Mahesh but they were not to his liking. Furthermore, Mahesh was also interested in working with a younger director due to the fact that he had worked on his last few films with senior directors.
A source has revealed that Mahesh has gotten in touch with a few young directors to come up with fresh scripts. He had already with Sandeep Vanga, Ajay Bhupathi and Parasuram who have delivered hits this year with Arjun Reddy, RX100 and Geetha Govindam respectively. In the meanwhile, Sukumar has been asked to come up with a fully bound script in order for Mahesh to confirm the shoot. Maharshi is set to hit the big screen in April 2019.
