Mahesh Babu and Trivikram Srinivas are coming together for their third film after Athadu and Khaleja. For now, this movie is titled as SSMB28. Filmmakers tried to start shoot in October but they have decided postpone it and due to death of Mahesh Babu parents – Indira and Krishna in the same year, they had to wait for him to come out of it. Finally, producer Nagavamshi has revealed that they have plans to start shooting from 18th January. Mahesh Babu will join by end of January last week and majority of the film will be shot in longer schedules.
Nagavamsi also revealed that SSMB28 will release on 11th August and they are getting ready with that date in mind. Pooja Hegde and Sree Leela have been cast as leading ladies opposite Mahesh Babu. Pooja Hegde acted with Mahesh Babu in his 25th film, Maharshi. She would be expecting to complete hat-trick of successes with director Trivikram Srinivas after their Aravinda Sametha, Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo and second hit with Mahesh Babu with this film.
Sree Leela got a big hit with Dhamaka, pairing opposite Ravi Teja and she would hope SSMB28 to put in the big league. Mahesh Babu will also get ready for his next film with SS Rajamouli, simulataneously. Trivikram Srinivas and Mahesh Babu both films have found great acceptance after their Satellite debuts and have cult classic status among fans of both. So, the combination wants this third one to be massive hit at box office and become another cult for their fans to rejoice. SS Thaman is scoring music for the film.
SS Rajamouli apologises for his comments of Hrithik Roshan.
