Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hedge's Maharshi pushed by two weeks, will now release on 25 April
Dil Raju, the co-producer of Maharshi, confirmed that Mahesh Babu's 25 film will release on 25 April.
Mahesh Babu's forthcoming film Maharshi will hit the theatres on 25 April, co-producer of the film Dil Raju revealed on 22 January during a media interaction, according to The Indian Express.
The film was initially slated for a release on 5 April. With the makers of Jersey and Majili too announcing that they are going to release their films on the same day, the release of Maharshi has been pushed by two weeks.
Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, Maharshi also stars Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh in lead roles. According to an earlier report, Mahesh will be seen playing a rich businessman who returns to India. It is is going to be the Telugu superstar's 25th movie.
The film has been shot in various locations, including the US, Hyderabad, Dehradun and Pollachi.
Until now, the makers have unveiled two posters and a teaser from the film. The latest poster shows Mahesh dressed suavely in a black suit and walking in the rain, accompanied by his foreign entourage. With the release of the poster, fans are suspecting that Mahesh plays a James Bond-like character in the film. The first poster, on the other hand, saw Mahesh Babu in a boy-next-door avatar.
The teaser, titled #MeetRishi, gave a glimpse of Mahesh's Rishi as he walked down a college corridor, occasionally glancing at his classmates charmingly.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
