Mahesh Babu who is currently shooting his next Telugu film Sarileru Neekevaru in Kashmir has a project with Arjun Reddy/Kabir Singh director Sandeep Vanga in the pipeline. A source close to Mahesh Babu reveals, “The two have met. Mahesh was keen to work with Sandeep Vanga. Mahesh had seen Arjun Reddy and he was very impressed.”
Vanga who is currently mired in controversy, is now in the process of scripting his film with Mahesh Babu. Says the source, “Sandeep Vanga is supposed to narrate his script to Mahesh. But Vanga’s script is work in progress. The film that Mahesh Babu wants to do with Sandeep will be a complete departure from Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh. Mahesh doesn’t want to play anything even remotely like Vijay Deverakonda in Arjun Reddy. The film that Sandeep will do with Mahesh will be a change of image for the director, not the star.”
Perhaps the film will also benefit Sandeep Reddy Vanga who has been facing severe backlash over the portrayal of women in Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. However, despite the criticism, Kabir Singh is going great guns at the box office and recently crossed INR 250 crore.
