Mahesh’s last release Maharshi was well received at the box office. According to a review in Hindustan Times, Maharshi has traces of Swades and AR Murugadoss’s Kaththi as it follows Rishi (Mahesh Babu), a man who is so consumed by his own success that he gets lost trying to understand its significance.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Mahesh will team up with Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga after wrapping up this project. They were supposed to team up for a film last year itself. However, due to their respective commitments, the plan had to be postponed.
