With Anil Ravipudi’s film, Mahesh Babu all set to create a record
Mahesh Babu is upbeat about his 25th film Maharshi, which is slated to hit the theatres on April 25. It was rumored that he is discussing scripts with Anil Ravipudi and Sukumar. However, Mahesh Babu said that he has opted out of Sukumar’s film due to creative differences.
Producer Dil Raju has suggested that he has set aside Rs 50 crore for the film’s budget apart from Mahesh Babu’s remuneration. It is said that the Prince has claimed 50% of the theatrical rights of the movie.
Reports indicate that the film’s digital and satellite rights would easily go up to Rs 100 crore out of which Mahesh Baby will take Rs 50 crore as his salary. This is a record salary for any star and he seems to have topped the list.
The remaining amount will be split by the producers. While Chiranjeevi is said to have signed Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy for Rs 30 crore, Mahesh Babu is likely to beat him in terms of remuneration.
After the completion of Maharshi, Mahesh will start shooting for his upcoming film with Anil Ravipudi, who is riding high on the success of F2: Fun and Frustration.
