The trailer of Mahesh Babu’s new film Maharshi shows him as a person who wishes to rule the world.

The trailer of Mahesh Babu’s forthcoming Telugu film Maharshi was released at the film’s pre-release event on Wednesday. Going by the visuals, the film tracks the journey of a character called Rishi, who wants to rule the world.

The trailer opens with Rao Ramesh’s character asking Mahesh Babu what he wants to do in life and he replies, “I want to rule the world”. This opening introduction shot is followed by grand visuals of Mahesh Babu walking in slow motion as a billionaire business tycoon. We also see him as a college student with a good sense of humour.


The trailer also makes it clear that Mahesh is afraid of losing and he’d do anything to not lose. Jagapathi Babu plays the antagonist and we get a glimpse of confrontation Mahesh’s character and him in the trailer. It also teases with some shots of what appears to be a very violent action sequence.

Directed by Vamshi Paidipally, Maharshi also stars Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh in crucial roles. The film was originally planned to be released on April 25. However, last month, producer Dil Raju in a press conference confirmed that the release has been pushed to May 9. He revealed the reason for postponement of the release as post-production work which was taking more time than expected. The film, which has been jointly produced by Dil Raju, Ashwini Dutt and PVP Cinema, has music by Devi Sri Prasad while KU Mohanan has cranked the camera.

Mahesh Babu’s last film Bharat Ane Nenu turned out to be a hit, coming after two duds — the AR Murugadoss directorial SPYder and Brahmotsavam. Bharat Ane Nenu was the story of a student who unexpectedly becomes a leader in Andhra Pradesh and attempts to reform politics.
