Last seen in Hindi film Machine, Kiara Advani has hit the jackpot. Amid rumours that she was considered but later dropped for superstar Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film Bharat Ane Nenu, the actor joined the sets on Tuesday. The project marks her Telugu debut and she has so far been absolutely tight-lipped about the project.
After working with popular southern heroines such as Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Tamannaah, Mahesh has this time gone for someone from Bollywood. He has also previously worked with Kriti Sanon in 1: Nenokkadine.
In Bharat Ane Nenu, Mahesh Babu will be seen playing a Chief Minister for the first time in his career. The latest addition to the cast is Tamil actor Sarath Kumar, who will be playing Mahesh’s father in the film. Although Sarath has starred in a few Telugu films over the years, this will be a huge project in his career. According to reliable sources, his role will be very crucial from the story’s perspective.
The makers have erected legislative assembly set to shoot crucial portions of the film. It has also been learnt that the makers are keen on giving Mahesh a makeover and are currently contemplating a new look. The project marks the second time collaboration of Mahesh and director Siva post Srimanthudu.
Meanwhile, Mahesh awaits the release of A.R Murugadoss’s Spyder, in which he will be seen playing an Intelligence Bureau officer and he will take bio-terrorism head on.
