Vijay to remake Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi

Even as Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi getting ready hit the screens in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and other areas soon, the latest is that film might soon be remade in Tamil.

The buzz is that the remake will feature actor Vijay in the lead. Interestingly, Vijay has earlier acted in the Tamil remakes of Mahesh Babu’s Okkadu and Pokkiri, which were titled Ghilli and Pokkiri in Tamil.

According to sources, the film’s story is about Rishi, a millionaire businessman, who returns to his homeland, where he becomes the champion of poor and downtrodden farmers. Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, Maharshi features Mahesh Babu and Pooja Hegde in central roles.

Mahesh Babu is upbeat about his landmark 25th film, Maharshi, which will hit the theatres on May 9. Recently, the makers unveiled the film’s trailer at the pre-release event.

As the film is gearing up for a worldwide release on May 9, the makers unveiled the trailer at the pre-release event, which took place on May 1 in Hyderabad. The trailer of Maharshi has received mixed reviews from the audience.

Rishi does not want to rest on his laurels: “I want to rule the world,” he says when someone asks him what he wants to achieve. The film, which also stars Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh, has been produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, and is scheduled to be released on May 9.
