If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Spyder co stars Mahesh Babu and Rakul Preet Singh are likely to join hands again for director Vamsi Paidipally’s yet-untitled project. We had already reported that Mahesh’s next film after Bharat Ane Nenu will be with Oopiri director and it’ll be set against the backdrop of US. Initially, it was believed that Pooja Hegde, last seen in Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham, was considered for the project and some even believed that she was signed. However, news of Rakul being signed doesn’t surprise us as she made a great mark with Mahesh in A.R Murugadoss’s Spyder.

Vamsi’s project is expected to go on the floors mid next year. In an earlier media interaction, Vamsi had said that Mahesh is very excited about the project. Apparently, when the Pokiri actor heard the first narration, he was ready to go ahead. It’s believed to be a big film in both their careers.The project marks Paidipally’s first collaboration with Mahesh whom he had always admired for his on screen charisma. Having experimented and played a spy in Spyder, it’ll be interesting to see what character Mahesh essays in this project. Having won over audiences and critics alike with his slice-of-drama Oopiri, which explores the bond of a quadriplegic millionaire and his convict-turned-caretaker, audiences will look forward to what Vamsi has to offer next.

This year has been good for Rakul with two hits to her credit already. Her film Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam turned out to be a blockbuster. She currently awaits the release of her Tamil film Theeram Adhigaaram Ondru, which features Karthi as a fierce cop. Apparently, she has been signed opposite Karthi for another project which will take off next year. Rakul is also rumoured to have been signed for Suriya’s project with filmmaker Selvaraghavan.
