Pooja Hegde will reportedly be paired opposite Mahesh Babu in SSMB28. However, the makers are yet to make any official announcement regarding its cast.
Hegde had earlier delivered films like Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava and Ala Vaikunthapurramloo with Trivikram. If the rumours are true, this will be her second film with Mahesh Babu after Maharshi which released in 2019.
Nani, Vijay Deverakonda, Gopichand Malineni, Vishnu Manchu and others paid tribute to TNR on social media.
Khiladi director Ramesh Sharma tweeted that a new release date will soon be announced.
The petitioner has opposed release of Malayalam film Aquarium as it allegedly "depicts the sexual relationship of nuns with two priests."
