"I like to reinvent with each project, in any which way possible. I like to tread uncharted territory and push myself in terms of performance. Brahmotsavam helped me to achieve that," Mahesh Babu told IANS.

Directed by Sreekanth Addala, the film also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Pranitha Subhash among others.

This is Mahesh's second film with Addala after Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu.

Commenting on their second-time collaboration, Mahesh said: "He first pitched the story of Brahmotsavam two years ago. I liked it, but couldn't immediately start working as I was committed to other projects. He patiently waited to work with me on this project.

The film is about relationships, said Mahesh, who was fascinated by his character.

"I haven't played anything like this before. The best part is that I was required to be myself for the role. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Addala again," he added.
