Mahesh Babu turns down India’s costliest movie

Vijay to star in movie; Art director Sabu Cyril & A R Rahman also on board

Tamil filmmaker Sunder C’s pitch for his latest movie has caused a buzz in the Southern film industry recently. The movie’s budget is estimated to be on a much larger scale than Shankar’s ‘2.0’ and Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali’.


Art director Sabu Syril and top musician of India AR Rahman have been roped on board for the film. Vijay is expected to be one of lead stars of the movie. Rumors that actor Mahesh Babu turned down a lead role in the movie has been doing their rounds in the film fraternity. The actor reportedly cited his next Murugadoss’ movie as the reason to turn down Sunder’s project.

The new Mahesh Babu and Murugadoss film will start rolling in August. Rakul Preet Singh is expected to star opposite Mahesh Babu in this film. The movie’s music will be rendered by Harris Jairaj.
